Harvey Weinstein’s Wife to Get $15-20 Million in Divorce Settlement

Georgina Chapman, wife of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, will receive $15-20 million in their divorce settlement, according to E! News. People also reports that Georgina will receive primary custody of the children.

The settlement has yet to be finalized, as the former couple is still working out the details of the division of their marital assets.

Georgina announced in October that she was leaving her husband of nearly ten years after a string of sexual harassment scandals.

“My heart breaks for all of the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” she said in a statement to People. “I have chosen to leave my husband.”

Georgina said her main priority was taking care of her children, and she asked the media for privacy as she navigates through this difficult time.

Weinstein denies having non-consensual sex with anyone.

The disgraced movie mogul said he supports his former wife’s decision and that he is seeking help through counseling. He hopes the two can reconcile when he is better.

“I sat down with my wife Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family,” Weinstein said. “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.”

Georgina will reportedly be given primary custody of two children, ages four and seven. The couple came to a settlement outside of the court, although negotiations “nearly collapsed,” the media reported. Had they collapsed, the case would have moved to the public courts.

“Unfortunately, what is best for the children isn’t always black and white,” said The Muller Firm, Ltd. “When the allocation of parental responsibilities is left up to a judge or jury, it is vital that all details and evidence are presented in a clear and accurate manner that paints a comprehensive picture so that appropriate determinations can be made.”

According to NY Daily News, the couple had a prenuptial agreement that required Weinstein to pay $300,000 in spousal support for each year of the marriage if it lasted less than ten years. The figure would reportedly have jumped to $400,000 if the marriage lasted more than a decade.

The announcement of the settlement came just shy of the former couple’s 10-year anniversary.

Among the couple’s assets include a townhouse in West Village with an estimated worth of $15 million, and an estate in the Hamptons that was listed for $12.4 million. The couple also owns real estate in Los Angeles and Connecticut.

The deal was finalized late last year, but the couple had hoped to keep the details a secret. Chapman has yet to file the paperwork making the divorce official.

Weinstein, whose net worth was once as high as $300 million, now faces a series of lawsuits. He is now attending a therapy program and has been fired from the Weinstein Company.
