Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein’s wife, announced this week that she is leaving the Hollywood producer, amid the fallout from reports detailing Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct toward multiple women.
“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,” she told People in a statement Tuesday.
Chapman, 41, is an English former model who has done modelling work for Head and Shoulders, according to Metro.
Chapman founded the luxury brand Marchesa, which is known for its red carpet gowns, with design partner Keren Craig in 2004 -- the same year Chapman met Weinstein at a New York City party.
The couple began dating that year after the mogul left his wife, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Chapman and Weinstein later tied the knot in 2007. They have two children: 7-year-old India Pearl and 4-year-old Dashiell.
