Harvey Weinstein’s wife is dumping the disgraced moviemaker amid his spiraling sex scandal — saying she needs time away from him to care for their kids.
“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” fashion designer Georgina Chapman told People magazine on Tuesday.
“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.”
?In a statement released by his spokesperson, Weinstein said, “?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,” he 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,” he added.
The couple has been married since 2007 and they have two children.
Georgina is one half of Marchesa, the super high end, super coveted clothing line that stars line up to wear on the carpet. I was sure she was going to wait until December 13th when they have their 10th wedding anniversary, but clearly in this fast moving news world it wasn’t worth destroying the Marchesa name over.
