London - Now you can watch as Nigella, nicknamed Higella after recent drug revelations, shows you how to roll a spliff and prep drugs.

Well. Not really.

An online spoof video put together by YouTube user Candiensounds took scenes from the celebrity chef’s hit cooking shows and edited it to look like she was giving advice on how to use drugs. 

Nigella’s drama started this summer with tabloid-worthy photos of her husband appearing to choke her. 

Then two former employees accused of using the couple's credit cards for more than $1m in fraudulent charges claimed Lawson had sanctioned their spending to hush them up about her heavy drug use.

Lawson's now ex-husband, Charles Saatchi, piled on, saying those startling photos of him with his hands around her neck were shot as the couple argued about her drug use.

In a London court for the employees' fraud trial last week, Lawson recounted it differently. 

She said Saatchi lunged at her after she mentioned looking forward to having grandchildren and he said she should be paying attention to him instead. She denied giving the employees permission to spend the money. And she denied having a drug problem. 

She did acknowledge using cocaine and marijuana a handful of times, but said she wasn't a habitual user.
