Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife of tens years is reportedly turning to someone who has vast experience in dealing with a wiener of a husband.
Georgina Chapman announced on Wednesday she’s leaving the disgraced Hollywood producer after no less than 30 brave women have come forward with horror stories of sexual harassment and serial rape — all of which prompted an FBI investigation.
“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” Chapman said in a statement to People Magazine.
And Chapman is said to be “leaning” on Abedin, a fellow scourned spouse, according to New York Post’s Page Six.
“One of the people Georgina has reached out to is Huma, who has been through this kind of scandal and media storm, and survived with her dignity intact,” said a source close to Weinstein’s wife. “They are both mothers, they have both been in a situation where their husbands turned out to be a different person than the man they thought they knew.”
More from the celebrity news, gossip and entertainment site:
A well-placed source tells Page Six that Marchesa co-founder Chapman reached out to Abedin, the soon-to-be ex-wife of convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner, as the scandal engulfing her movie-mogul husband intensified and more women — including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow — came forward with allegations that Weinstein had sexually assaulted or harassed them.
Chapman and Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top aide, have known each other for some time because of Weinstein’s numerous fund-raising events for the former presidential hopeful. Plus, the Clintons rented a Hamptons house next door to Weinstein and Chapman’s Amagansett estate for three summers.
Of course, the Weinsteins are no strangers to the Democrat Party’s upper echelon. The Obama’s praised “good friend” Weinstein in the past and even sent daughter Malia to intern at his company with their apparent blessing.
Weinstein was also a mega donor for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign. Clinton took six days to finally say she’d give some of the money he donated to “charity.”
The once-powerful film mogul, who told Page Six he was “profoundly devastated” that his wife was leaving him, appeared defiant on Wednesday when he was seen flipping double birds to cameras at his lawyer’s office.
He would later jet off to Scottsdale, Arizona, near an exclusive in-house rehab facility, amid claims he was “suicidal” after a heated altercation with his 22-year-old daughter.
