After 10 years together, has the sun set on Trini and Sachi’s love story? Allison Boschoff is investigating
Three-times divorced Charles Saatchi once said, “If you are a narcissist, as I am, you may find it difficult to hold on to your wives.
“I never understood how I could tire of my company, but he clearly is, and with reliable frequency.”
His candid statements came a year after his divorce from his third wife, Nigella Lawson, sparked by shocking images that showed his hand around her throat.
At the time of our 2014 interview, the advertising man turned art collector was in the early stages of his romance with beauty mogul Trini Woodall.
But if Saatchi feels optimistic that this relationship will be one he can keep, history seems doomed to repeat itself. Now, after ten years together, the couple appears to have gone their separate ways.
A fresh start: Trini Woodall (left), 59, spoke about the “stressful” new start that saw her and Charles Saatchi (right), who is 20 years her senior, move out of the house.
The news: Trinny updated her Instagram followers about her fresh start away from home with Saatchi
Trinny, 59, spoke about the “stressful” new start that saw her and Saatchi, 20, moved out of the house.
She looked increasingly flustered in a recent appearance on her Instagram, where she regularly shares videos pitching her products to her 1.2 million followers.
On March 14, she noted that she had “a grueling few days ahead of me.”
Then, last Friday, she revealed that she had moved into her own home. I’ve been moving on — but I’ve moved on now,” she told her followers, acknowledging that things have been “a bit up and down” and captioned her message: “It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new life.” . “.
Over the weekend, I posted posts from a family ski vacation in France.
A seemingly emotional Trini reveals that she has been spending time in a chalet that her family owns. I have held this view for the last 30 years of my life. It’s the only consistent point of view I’ve ever had.
Recently, with the great change of life and moving house, it was important for me to come back here with (my daughter) Lila and her family just to enjoy that moment, listen to the birds, and be in harmony with nature. very healing.
Asked about the split yesterday, Saatchi said, “Sorry, nothing to add.”
Trinny and Saatchi’s romance came after his divorce from Nigella in 2013. After he was photographed with his hands around Nigella’s neck, he accepted a police warning though arguing that the incident was nothing more than a “playful altercation”.
Trinny Woodall fueled speculation that she and longtime love Charles Saatchi had split and revealed on Instagram that she had moved on
During their romance, fashion designer Trinny, best known for the popular BBC show What Not To Wear, which she co-hosted with friend Susana Constantine, launched the highly successful Trinny London beauty and makeup empire.
Saatchi, who is said to be worth around £100m, is not an investor – although he did play a memorable role in promoting the brand.
At the height of the first lockdown, he wandered naked into the couple’s shared bathroom, not realizing that Trinny was in the midst of filming a video about an LED face mask that was broadcast live on Facebook.
Although the personal worth of Trinny is not known, the worth of Trinny London has been estimated at £180 million and is on the rise.
In a 2021 interview, Trinny said she “grew up a lot” during her relationship with Saatchi. “I don’t let myself get away with things, so if I get kind of angry he’ll go: ‘Really, are you kidding?'” And then I’ll come up and think: “Okay, let me grow up now.”
“I think that’s what happens when you’re with someone who’s been through a lot in their life, and there’s no one more supportive of my work and my jobs in terms of being my hero.” The couple began dating in 2013 after Saatchi’s second wife, Kai Hartenstein, was reported to have put together a short list of women – who have been single since their split from Nigella – she might want to date.
Within three months of the start of their romance, Trinny had partially moved into Saatchi’s house in Chelsea. In 2014, nine months into their relationship, the couple was photographed sitting at the same table outside Scott’s Restaurant where Saatchi was spotted with Nigella.
Over the course of a three-hour lunch, Trini is seen wiping away her tears while the pair are apparently arguing. Lawyers later denied any dispute had occurred.
At the time of the incident with Nigella, Sachi said he was just helping her “focus”.
However, Nigella explains that she saw a cute baby pass by in a pushchair and noticed that she was looking forward to becoming a grandmother, which sparked an argument with her husband.
She told the court that he told her, “I’m the only person you should care about.”
Nigella – who has notably accused Saatchi of “intimate terror” – added that her ex-husband “told everyone” he was already taking cocaine out of her nose.
Trini has also experienced heartbreak in a relationship. In 2014, her ex-husband, Johnny Elishauf, died by suicide, after battling painkiller addiction for 20 years.
The couple, who were married for ten years before divorcing in 2009, had a daughter together, Laila, who is now 19.
In an interview, Trinny said: ‘I worry about being a single mother, but I get good advice from Charles.
He has a wonderful daughter, Phoebe, who is incredibly generous and intelligent. He’s got an amazing baby because he raised her so well.
She offered a rare insight into their relationship when she told a podcast in 2021: “Any friend who’s known me for years will know that I’m the most amenable, self-sufficient person they’ve ever been.”
I know I pay for everything with my life, except for the roof over my head, because I live with Charles. Every element of what I put towards business expenses I am careful of.
That year, she also revealed that she had taken up smoking again due to a very stressful situation in her personal life.
It remains to be seen if her fresh start will bring happier times.
