Lawson used the social media site to break her silence after making headlines Tuesday that she allegedly abused drugs daily during her 10-year marriage to Charles Saatchi, an art tycoon.

The allegation was made by her two former assistants, Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, in a London courtroom during a pre-trial hearing; Saatchi accuses them of fraud, Mirror Online reported.

The Grillos allegedly stole over $480,000 while working for the couple. The sisters claim Lawson allowed them to use the couple's credit cards for high-end items including designer clothes and first-class flights if they remained silent about her drug habits, the BBC reported.

Her ex-husband reportedly said in an email to Lawson that he believes “every word” that the Grillos say about the accusations of drug abuse, the New York Daily News reported.

The self-proclaimed “domestic goddess” and co-star of ABC’s competitive-cooking show “The Taste” allegedly got high with her teenage daughter.

Lawson's lawyers said the drug allegations were "totally scurrilous" and untrue, according to the Daily News, and the timing "is no coincidence at all" following her high-profile divorce drama.

Twitter posters gave Lawson words of encouragement.
