Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, the fourth wife of novelist Salman Rushdie, was spotted out in NYC on Friday afternoon hours after her former spouse was stabbed at a literary event by an alleged Iranian government sympathizer.
Just a few hours after the stabbing, his fourth wife Padma Lakshmi was pictured out in New York City wearing a denim jumper, face mask and glasses as she stepped out in Manhattan. The two were married in 2004, but their union only lasted three years.
Rushdie, 75, is on a ventilator, unable to speak and will likely lose an eye, his agent said following the attack.
Rushdie was about give a talk on artistic freedom at New York’s Chautauqua Institution when a man rushed to the stage and lunged at the novelist, who has lived with a bounty on his head since the late 1980s.
