Saatchi threatened to destroy me Multimillionaire art dealer Charles Saatchi told a personal assistant accused of defrauding him and former wife Nigella Lawson that he would "destroy" her, a court has heard. Francesca Moncler Clothing Online Grillo said Mr Saatchi had a "personal vendetta" against her and sister Elisabetta, who also faces a charge of fraud. Francesca, 35, told Isleworth Crown Court, in west London, that Mr Saatchi asked to see her at his home in July after his financial director Rahul Gajjar confronted her and Elisabetta, 41, with credit card statements. The court heard Mr Gajjar had asked the sisters to sign a letter the previous day, admitting dishonesty and promising to continue working for Mr Saatchi and Ms Lawson for a reduced salary for an unlimited period of time. The Grillos had not signed the letter and asked for a copy of it while they considered their options, the jury heard.

He said I would end up in handcuffs." She said the situation became "quite scary" as Mr Saatchi told her: "Hide anywhere in Italy but I will find you and destroy you."

"I had been honest about my expenditure so I didn t know where that was coming from. "I don t get upset easily, but that upset me, and even until today." Specifying what had upset her, she added: "The way he accused me, the things he said about me and the fact he went on a personal vendetta." Francesca and her sister spent three hours locked in a cell after their eventual arrest, she told the jury. "I felt let down by many people and the situation itself," she said. "I couldn t believe the people I cherished and loved put me in this situation. The Grillos wrote a letter to Ms Lawson saying they were "reaching out" to her and asking for forgiveness, the jury was told. "We never meant to be seen to be disloyal or seen like we took advantage of our positions," the court heard they had written. She said the letter was not admitting "abuse of position", rather it was saying "sorry for losing your love and affection". Francesca explained she wanted Boys Moncler Vest things to go back to normal, "if they thought we were disloyal and we didn t follow some rules they gave us". In the letter, the sisters said Ms Lawson and Mr Saatchi were their "English family", adding: "We saw you like mother and father figures."

Grillo left in tears, telling Judge Robin Johnson she needed five minutes to compose herself before she could continue giving evidence.
