Estranged wife of Marco Pierre White denies beating adult sons
The estranged wife of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White denies assaulting her adult sons, a court has heard.
Matilde White appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Tuesday accused of two counts of common assault by beating against her adult sons, Luciano and Marco junior.
The 51-year-old, of Chiswick High Road, London, said she acted in self defence against her offspring.
Jane Ndeti, prosecuting, said the allegations related to a domestic incident at Marco junior's flat, also in Chiswick, on September 20 last year.
The court heard how the police were called by Luciano, his mother and a member of the public.
Matilde White, who denies both charges, is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court for trial on July 12 at 10am.
