Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, is leaving him in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against the Hollywood heavyweight, People reports.
“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband,” Chapman said in a statement to the publication. “Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
“Over the last week, there has been a lot of pain for my family that I take responsibility for," Weinstein said of their split in a statement obtained by ET on Wednesday.
"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. In the end, she made the decision to separate. I understand, I love her and I love our children and hopefully, when I am better, I will be in their lives again. I support her decision, I am in counseling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild.”
Chapman, a 41-year-old designer and co-founder of Marchesa, tied the knot with Weinstein, 65, in December 2007. The couple have two children together: 7-year old daughter India and 4-year-old son Dashiell.
The report of their split comes as a growing number of women speak out about experiencing inappropriate behavior from Weinstein.
