Nigella Lawson Moves Out, Photographer Defends His Decision Not To Intervene

Last year

Nigella Lawson has reportedly moved out of her family home in the aftermath of the photo scandal which saw her being allegedly assaulted by her husband.

The Sun published photos of movers carrying her belongings out of the home she shared with Charles Saatchi.

This comes in the wake of photographer Jean-Paul speaking out about his decision to take the photos and not intervene in the situation.

"What I witnessed was 27 minutes of madness," Jean-Paul wrote in the British tabloid Sunday People. "That's how long the abuse lasted from start to finish so it was most definitely not a fleeting moment."

So why didn’t he intervene?

"I would have been arrested," he wrote. "I'm paparazzi so everyone hates you to begin with.

"The best thing I could do was carry on taking the pictures because now everyone can see that Charles Saatchi is an abuser."

Jean-Paul is please that his photos made worldwide news.

"I am proud because as a photographer you want to be in the paper but you also want to take pictures that mean something.

"This will be talked about for years."

Do you think he should have intervened?
