Harvey Weinstein’s wife Georgina Chapman has broken her silence on the allegations made against her estranged husband.

Back in October last year, many actresses came forward with harrowing claims of sexual assault and sexual harassment against the Hollywood producer.

Georgina has kept tight-lipped on the allegations until now, opening up to Vogue in an interview.

“I don’t want to be viewed as a victim because I don’t think I am,” she told the publication. “I am a woman in a sh*t situation, but it’s not unique.” 

The 42-year-old opened up how her husband’s alleged actions forced her to essentially go into hiding for five months.

I was so humiliated and so broken … that I didn’t think it was respectful to go out,” she explained in her interview. “I thought, ‘Who am I to be parading around with all of this going on?’ It’s still so very, very raw.”

Georgina then stayed with her parents in London.

The mother of two admitted to feeling extremely “naive” after realising the first article about Weinstein “wasn’t an isolated incident”.

When Georgina realised the first allegations emerging against her husband weren’t “isolated” she got herself and her children out of the situation. She is pictured here with Weinstein at the 2017 Oscars Vanity Fair party. Source: Getty

Soon after, she realised she “needed to step away” and take her children – daughter India, 7, and son Dashiell, 5 – away from the situation.

The fashion designer candidly admitted to having moments when she would “just cry” for her kids and how they would be treated because of their father’s alleged actions.

Earlier this year, Georgina and her estranged husband reportedly reached an eight-figure divorce settlement.

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), a source told the New York Post

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

“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”.

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