Harvey Weinstein’s wife calls it quits, as scandal threatens to crush her fashion label Marchesa

Beverly Hills, California.

Slowly but surely, even the life of a powerful liberal Hollywood movie mogul is showing not to be immune to the likes of the avalanche of sexual harassment and assault allegations that started with last week’s blockbuster New York Times expose on the ‘exploits’ of Harvey Weinstein.

And now, Weinstein’s own wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, is quite justifiably no longer sticking with her man.

The two have been married since 2007 and have two children, 7 and 4, together.

Chapman broke the news in a statement to People:

“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.”

Appallingly, the Hollywood mogul at first expressed his belief that his wife would stick with him through it all, telling the New York Post, “She stands 100 percent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length.”

Aside from the obvious struggle to protect her young children from the ugliness, Chapman’s successful business is likely to be crushed by the scandal.

NBC passed on explosive Weinstein rape story Woody Allen’s son just broke in the New Yorker; WHY?

“Georgina is really mad” but “not even really at Harvey,” a source told PEOPLE. “Chapman is concerned with the impact the scandal might have on her fashion label Marchesa, whose gowns are often worn on red carpets by A-list actresses,” PEOPLE reported.

The source adds, “Georgina talks about the incidents like they happened before they were married. Still, it’s very sad and disappointing to Georgina that Harvey has behaved like this. It’s not anything that can just be forgotten, or forgiven. Right now, she seems very focused on Marchesa. Marchesa is her baby too. It’s a family business. She has several friends working for Marchesa and also her brother. She needs to keep business going. She will do what she can to keep her personal life away from Marchesa.”
