Harvey Weinstein’s wife is reportedly leaving him

Harvey Weinstein’s wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, is reportedly leaving her husband in the wake of bombshell sexual assault allegations stretching back decades.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” Chapman, 41, said in a statement to People. “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.”

Weinstein, 65, and the British designer, who co-founded the high-end fashion label Marchesa, wed in 2007 and have two children together — 7-year-old India Pearl and 4-year-old Dashiell Max Robert.

Chapman’s decision to call it quits comes after two shocking exposés, one from the New York Times and one from the New Yorker, revealed decades of alleged sexual harassment against young actresses at the hands of her filmmaker husband.

A source told People Monday that a split was “inevitable,” but still a ways off, and claimed that Chapman was angry not with her husband, but about the impact his indiscretions may have on her fashion label.

“Georgina is furious and embarrassed,” the source told the outlet. “She is very upset, but not rushing to file for divorce … Georgina talks about the incidents like they happened before they were married. Still, it’s very and disappointing to Georgina that Harvey has behaved like this.”

Marchesa is a staple on Hollywood red carpets, and is often worn by the same A-listers starring in Weinstein’s films.

Chapman’s fears that her husband’s scandal could affect business seemed to ring true.

“No star is ever going to want to wear the brand again,” an unnamed New York fashion publicist told The Hollywood Reporter Monday.

The pair first began dating in 2004, after Weinstein left his first wife, Eve Chilton. He and Chapman were married in a star-studded affair in Connecticut with a guest list including A-listers like Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Renee Zellweger.

The Hollywood honcho was ousted from his film studio Sunday.

On Tuesday, both Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow joined the dozens of other famous faces – including Ashley Judd and television reporter Lauren Sivan – who had come forward to claim that Weinstein had sexually abused them.

A rep for Chapman did not immediately respond to a Daily News request for comment.
