Weinstein and estranged wife reach eight-figure divorce settlement

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and his estranged wife Georgina Chapman have reportedly reached an eight-figure divorce settlement.

A source told the New York Post the deal was made at the end of 2017 and is estimated to be between $19 million and $25 million ($15 million to $20 million USD).

The publication has reported the estranged couple, who have been married for nearly a decade, are set to file the divorce papers in court in the next few days.

The 41-year-old fashion designer reportedly signed a prenuptial agreement before she married Weinstein in 2007.

Their prenup allegedly states the Hollywood mogul is to pay Georgina $380,000 ($300,000 USD) in spousal support for each year of their marriage and that figure would increase to $500,000 ($400,000 USD) after 10 years of marriage.

The Marchesa designer announced in October 2017 she had separated from Weinstein following the sexual harassment and assault allegations which emerged against him.

The 41-year-old has two children with Weinstein – India Pearl, 7, and four-year-old Dashiell Max Robert.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," Georgina said in a statement to People last year.

"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, has been undergoing treatment at the luxury resort/rehab in Arizona since October, with new pictures of him hiding out in the desert state emerging recently as he hid out whilst this year's female focused Golden Globes went ahead.

The movie producer has always denied the allegations against him, but with more than 50 women coming forward with stories of abuse, the police and FBI have been investigating.

Most recently, actress Salma Hayek accused the Miramax owner of being 'her monster', saying he coerced her into a sex scene with another woman during the filming of the movie Frida and once even threatened to kill her.

Other leading men in Hollywood have since been identified as alleged sexual predators and movements such as Time's Up have launched to help protect women from sexual harassment in the workplace.
