Harvey Weinstein’s Wife Georgina Chapman Divorcing Him

Updated: Just days after Harvey Weinstein said his wife, Marchesa fashion designer Georgina Chapman, was standing by him, Chapman now says she has chosen to leave her husband.

Chapman said in a statement to People magazine, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”

Weinstein said he supported Chapman’s decision to leave him, in a statement quoted in Page Six. “​I support her decision, I am in counseling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild. Over the last week, there has been a lot of pain for my family that I take responsibility for,” Weinstein said.

“I sat down with my wife Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family. We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. I understand, I love her and I love our children and hopefully, when I am better, I will be in their lives again.”

Weinstein was fired Sunday after the New York Times published allegations from several women, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, who said he sexually harassed them. The New York Times report was followed by another explosive story in the New Yorker on Tuesday, with accusers including Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette.

The same day the allegations were published, Weinstein told the New York Post, “She stands 100 percent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length.”

Chapman’s company Marchesa has supplied elaborately beaded and lacy gowns to several stars of Weinstein Co. films.

Chapman, 41, married Weinstein, 65, in 2007. They have two children, a daughter, India Pearl, and a son, Dashiell.

He had three children with his first wife and former assistant Eve Chilton.
