Georgina Chapman May Receive Up To $20 Million Dollars In Divorce Settlement With Harvey Weinstein
Georgina Chapman has suffered what no woman or wife would ever want to go through. The designer's estranged husband, the disgraced movie giant, Harvey Weinstein, has been accused of sexual abuse and harassment from over 80 women. Weinstein, who is currently seeking treatment in Arizona, could also face possible charges from the allegations against him.
Chapman has since left Weinstein and publicly issued an apology to all the women who claimed her husband attacked or abused them.
"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 stated.
Reports began to circulate that the designer was planning to divorce Weinstein. While it was rumored that Chapman could walk away with $12 million, new reports state that couple has reached an agreement and Chapman may leave with more than originally speculated.
Chapman Is Out
Chapman could leave with an amount anywhere between $15 to $20 million dollars, after her divorce from Weinstein. The couple has reportedly reached an eight-figure agreement which will also grant Chapman primary custody of the couple's two children, India and Dashiell.
The separated couple has yet to file the papers in court. Weinstein, who was once worth $240 million dollars, agreed in their prenuptial agreement that he would pay Chapman, $400,000 dollars annually in spousal support, in addition to $25,000 dollars for each month she was married to him.
Weinstein's Continued Fallout
When the first allegations made headlines, Weinstein vehemently denied all accusations of any sexual misconduct.
"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances," Weinstein's attorney said in a statement. The global scandal created what became known as the "Weinstein Epidemic" which led to numerous other men in the entertainment industry and media to be outed for the past sexual crimes.
Other Hollywood honchos who have been named as sexual predators include Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Brett Ratner, James Toback, and Louis C.K.
As for Weinstein, the former movie mogul is still facing the repercussions of his alleged, horrendous crimes. The producer was recently attacked at a restaurant near the rehabilitation center he is currently staying at.
