Nigella Lawson’s former PA Elisabetta Grillo has accused the TV cook and her husband Charles Saatchi of lying in court.
Elisabetta Grillo, 41, told Isleworth Crown Court that she was the only one telling the truth in the case.
She also said that Nigella Lawson’s other PAs, who have given evidence in court, had also lied.
Former PAs Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, who are sisters, deny fraudulently using credit cards.
Elisabetta Grillo told the court that Nigella Lawson gave her permission to pay for designer shoes and a language course on a credit card provided by Charles Saatchi.
The court was told that Elisabetta Grillo did not mention that Nigella Lawson had taken drugs in her original defense statement made in August because she “felt a remnant of sympathy” towards the TV chef.
