Charles Saatchi — Dinner for 1 … Try Not to Choke Anyone

0618_Charles-Saatchi_Rex-USAMillionaire choke artist Charles Saatchi — the guy who says he was only “playfully” strangling his wife in public last week — surfaced in London today for a dinner date with himself.

Saatchi has been hounded by the U.K. media ever since photos surfaced showing the ad mogul getting a little too hands on with his celebrity chef wife Nigella Lawson.

But today, Saatchi arrived solo to the the swanky 34 Restaurant in London.

With Lawson reportedly out of town — and far from Saatchi”s grip — looks like the only thing he”ll be choking in the near future is his own chicken.
