Georgina Chapman finalized her divorce, got full custody, two homes & a lot more

Cannes Film Festival 2021 - "The French Dispatch"

Harvey Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year sentence for rape in the state of New York. The state of New York is going to extradite him to California at some point so he can stand trial for eleven counts of sexual assault. My point? He’s a 69 year old man in poor health and he’s going to die in prison. That won’t change the pain and trauma he caused so many women, but it is something. While he sat there in prison, his lawyers had to work out his divorce from Georgina Chapman. I’m sure there are legal reasons (like Harvey’s victims suing his estate) why there was apparently some kind of fight about money and property, but Georgina walked away with some big assets and full custody of their children.

Georgina Chapman has officially finalized her divorce from Harvey Weinstein, The Post has learned. The couple’s contested divorce in Manhattan Supreme Court was finalized this week and online court records show the case is now listed as “disposed” after a final, sealed motion was filed Monday, according to records and sources.

Weinstein, 69, and Chapman, 45, share two children — India, 10, and Dashiell, 8 — and married in 2007 after meeting each other at a party. The former pair reached a divorce settlement in January 2018 that required the fallen Hollywood titan to pay his ex between $15 million to $20 million and give up custody of his kids, a source previously confirmed. The ex’s prenuptial agreement stated Weinstein must pay Chapman $300,000 in spousal support for each year of marriage and after a decade, the figure jumps to $400,000. The settlement came just as the couple was reaching their ten-year anniversary.

Chapman also secured a slice of the marital assets, like their $15 million West Village townhouse and $12 million Hamptons beach house, and other payments, sources previously said.

I wonder if Chapman had not filed for divorce, all of those assets would have been hers as his wife anyway? Like, unless he explicitly kept her out of all of their finances during their marriage, she would have already “owned” that real estate and all of investments, etc. But, again, she would see all of their fortune looted by all of Weinstein’s crushing legal fees and such. Chapman really got out while the getting was good. She walked away with a sizable settlement, her business (Marchesa) free and clear, two pieces of prime real estate and full custody of their children, all while her ex rots in prison.

Georgina joined her boyfriend Adrien Brody in Cannes this week. Considering Cannes was one of Weinstein’s favorite hunting grounds, there’s an ick factor to these photos.

    Good for her I guess. The kids will be looked after. The whole thing is bleurgh.

  2. Amy Bee says:

    You would think Georgina Chapman would’ve wanted to avoid red carpets and Hollywood but I guess she still wants actresses to wear her clothes. I honestly thought the divorce was already finalized. And didn’t they have a home in the UK as well, I’m guessing she got that too or maybe that was always hers.

    • Ohiomom says:

      I always thought a lot of her designs were very flattering for the actresses she dressed!

    • Isabella says:

      Makes sense that she’d turn up in Cannes with Adrian Brody, her boyfriend, since he has a new film out. I’m sure she’s also promoting her clothes, which are pretty. I feel conflicted about how much she knew about Harvey, but that’s another story. Nice to see a Hollywood star dating somebody in his own age group.

      “The couple stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Brody’s latest movie, The French Dispatch. It marks the second time the 48-year-old actor has stepped out publicly out with the 45-year-old fashion designer after PEOPLE confirmed their relationship in February 2020.

      Brody and Chapman first made their red carpet debut at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the crime thriller Clean in New York City in June.”

  3. Chica1971 says:

    I think she turned a blind eye to his affairs, not realizing, it was rape. They had an agreement, he got a trophy and she clout and kids.

    • Haylie says:

      She also got to force his victims to wear her dresses. I don’t trust her “innocent wife” routine.

      • Krystina says:

        Actually, HE was the one to do that.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        She certainly had some power with Harvey if she mandated that his clients wear her clothes. But it could have been that Harvey forced them to wear her clothes. Who knows 🤔

      • Merricat says:

        Krystina is right. Harvey paid for the company, and he intended to get his money’s worth, so he made women wear GC’s stuff.

      • Ella says:

        It’s funny how quickly people blame the women in the rapist’s life and not the rapist himself. It’s not at all difficult to believe he manipulated her. He successfully manipulated countless women into not exposing him, for decades. Prolific predators are good at what they do.

      • Haylie says:

        She was just as involved in her company as he was, so yeah, she shares the responsibility for the invisible contract. She benefited directly from it.

        Sometimes, women are complicit. People will turn a blind eye to lots of atrocities if they stand to gain from it. Camille Cosby or Erika Jayne, anyone?

        And Harvey’s coercive rape (and outright rape) was an open secret. For a very long time. I don’t believe for a minute Georgina didn’t know. It that means I’m blaming a woman for a man’s acts to some, so be it.

    • Betsy says:

      I agree. How in the world would she know her husband was raping people?

      • Sigmund says:

        Yeah, I’m not super comfortable blaming women for men’s actions. Unless there’s some kind of evidence to suggest she knew about or was actively supporting his raping of women, she shouldn’t be held responsible for what he did. His actions were his own. It does suck that now his victims will probably not have access to that money.

      • Sue Denim says:

        I was v tangentially in the industry back then and would see him around, heard many stories of how vile he was to directors and just about everyone he came in contact with, but somehow all of the women whispered about were assumed to be consenting.

        The ugly trope of the “casting couch” helped him hide in plain sight, made it seem that the women were somehow complicit. So I can sort of see that GC might not have known, but at some level, I think we all really did know. It was just a culturally-created cognitive dissonance…otherwise known as the patriarchy…

        And she is still in it, not apparently growing, learning or fighting it in any way, not an ally to women, and frankly w a guy who kind of assaulted Halle Berry while hiding in plain sight too… So I’m a big no on her too…

        ETA forcing women to wear her hideous clothes could be considered a violation too, sort of kidding…

      • Becks1 says:

        At the end of the first space Jam, there’s a Harvey Weinstein reference – something about being forced into a limo with HW or something and then being a big star. My husband was watching it with my kids and he yelled for me to come down and rewatch it.

        That came out in 1996, so even then people knew.

        Now, I’ll say that society’s idea of consent has changed a great deal over the last 25 years, but even putting that aside, saying to someone “sleep with me or you don’t get the job/wont get promoted/wont get a bonus” is pretty much textbook sexual harassment, even in 1996. So Hollywood covered for him for decades because he made money.

      • Sally says:

        @Sue Denim
        Yeah, I’ve heard about these rumours from a friend too, a lot of them were spread through a misogynistic lense as well, aka often jealous or envious men talking about how those women consented to sleep with him to advance their careers. It’s… sad. I’m sure a lot could have been done earlier if that hadn’t been the case.

      • Betsy says:

        @Sue Denim – this is what I’m talking about. I do not think that we should have the expectation that a wife would know that her husband was a rapist and not a run of the mill creep. There is a huge gulf between “you will have sex with me or I will end you” and “if you have sex with me, I will give you a career” and it’s not up to a spouse to police it. Everyone knows that sleeping to get ahead is sadly a thing and has been forever. I wouldn’t guess that Chapman enjoyed knowing her husband was sleeping around (but then I don’t really get throuples/open relationships and the like so maybe?), I certainly wouldn’t expect her to delve into it to the point that she would discover it was not sleeping around but rape. And yeah, the whole “she slept her way to the top” thing is toxicly misogynistic.

    • taris says:

      i remember when the first allegation or two came out back in 2017, she initially actually released a statement supporting harvey, doing the whole ‘i believe my husband’ shindig. only when more allegations started pouring in, and it became clear that weinstein was finished, did she then speak out in support of the women who were accusing him.
      it always seemed calculating to me, i have to say.

      i don’t know what she knew, regardless i can’t imagine any of this has been easy for her and her daughters. in any case, at least she has her business and a new guy. good for her.

      • taris says:

        btw i don’t think people who say she knew about her husband are necessarily blaming her for his behaviour. she may have thought he was just a philanderer, but not a rapist. lots of women know (or suspect) what their husbands get up to, but choose to turn a blind eye.
        knowing ≠ responsibility

    • Princess Peach says:

      I don’t see how she would know he was raping women but she certainly knew he was forcing women to wear her clothes on the red carpet and that in turn build her brand. And everyone knows about Adrien Brody

      • Granger says:

        But maybe she didn’t see it as forcing. Maybe she legitimately believed that all these movie stars were happy to oblige — one, because her husband was helping them get rich and famous; and two, because she thought her own designs were so “beautiful,” who wouldn’t want to wear them?

      • Lily says:

        Oh so glad somebody said it. Adrien Brody is not a great choice. It’s kind of like a slightly better version of the same model.

        I get the feeling Georgina has very low self esteem, has not developed healthy boundaries, and is willing to put up with anything :/

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      She can’t be blamed for her husband’s actions, and maybe she didn’t know his horrible behavior rose to the level of rape. BUT, she must certainly have known that he was a horrible person, who coerced women into the sack in exchange for movie roles (even if she didn’t think he actually raped them), and from what we’ve heard, he was horrible to basically everyone, with a nasty personality. I cannot believe she *loved* him, so she must have sold herself for what she could get out of it (which reinforces how society views women), OR, if she really did love him, that says a lot about what kind of person SHE is as well. So leaving the rape out of it and not blaming her for his actions, I view her in light of her own actions, and it’s not a nice picture.

    • Twinkle says:

      She’s a soulless woman. She was Harvey’s mistress while he was still married to his first wife. Georgina knows exactly what kind of monster HW is. She didn’t care. She just wanted success. Her clothes were hot messes too.

      • acliM says:

        And…

        Whooomp! There it is!

        HW is an amalgamation of everything one can imagine when one rolls a montage in their mind’s eye, of every single stereotype of what a boorish pig is. And it is worse than what most believe, or perhaps, even realize, because with HW, it’s not just the sexual assault & coercion. And I say this as someone who has never been sexually assaulted or coerced by HW.

        It is EVERY SINGLE LITTLE INTERACTION.

        He shows ZERO respect or common decency to ANYONE, UNLESS he knows they have more power, pull, clout, & money than him.

        His treatment of up & coming is legendary. The man has c*ck blocked many a genuine talent and their projects.

        He is brash, rude, never says ”please” “excuse me “, “pardon me” thank you”, or “would you like to…?”, or “how would you feel if…?”

        It is unbelievable that a man with pig with so much entitlement, zero social graces and skills, got anywhere in a business that while brutal behind the scenes, requires a high level of amicus & the appearance of good will and good wishes for all who abound, in public, especially when the paps are snapping away, which they always are at the events HW obviously attended due to his job.

        There’s no way in hell, even as a mistress, that GC did not know what an enormous POS her husband is. It’s not like he “cleans up” well for the sake of his wife or even kids.

        This is a man who ruined the careers of HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS of women AND men. We just don’t hear their stories, and I wish someone would make the documentary on THAT side, because while sexual assault of a woman is the worst thing that I’ve had happen to me as a woman, I have seen close up what men have gone through when dealing with a two bit pimp and man who’s willing to do anything from strong arming and/or even hiring a professional hit man.

        Harvey is PURE filth and I hope he dies a very long, uncomfortable death in Rikers.

        Doesn’t matter what I “hope”, however, as people like HW know they’re dancing with the devil and are totally aware of the harm they do and still.. they place their bets and go ALL in, even doubling down.

        HW, knew he could spend life in prison. Even if he forgot, got cocky, )excuse the pin) or if his self awareness was very long ago, he knew.

        He wasn’t intellectually bereft. He knew, and I’m positive he eventually accepted it, as people like him tend to do when the gig is up. The only surprise is that he didn’t bow out of it on his “own terms”, alá Epstein, before got a chance to cuff him.

        GC cannot be too nice of a gal, and AB is just NUTS. A perfect project for a woman with really low self esteem, I suppose.

        I got an opinion this mornin’, huh ?

  4. Red Weather Tiger says:

    Was there…any doubt she would get full custody? I mean, the kids weren’t going to go spend weekends with their father upstate, you know?

    • liz says:

      The court order of full legal custody makes it possible for her to do things that usually require the written consent of both parents (particularly when they are divorced) – getting a minor child a passport, enrolling in school, etc. With full custody, she doesn’t need his signature on any forms, regardless of whether or not he’s incarcerated.

  5. Scorpion says:

    I’m sorry but looking at those photos, there is no chemistry between her and Adrien Brody. This looks like an showmanship.

  6. Me says:

    She’ll probably never dress a star again, but the Marchesa wedding gown business seems to have some staying power. Certainly she would need to secure her own estate for herself and her children, but paying legal bills and damages for one’s wrongful acts does not constitute ‘looting’—it’s just paying your debts, however heavy they may be.

  7. Plums says:

    I feel bad for their kids and that’s all. No way she didn’t know and wasn’t complicit, and I’m mad people still wear Marchesa.

    • Kristen says:

      I don’t think that’s a fair assertion to say she was complicit. She was married to him, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t also a victim of his.

      • Plums says:

        Harvey Weinstein’s crimes were an open secret in hollywood, and he only went down for them when the wider culture turned with Me Too. She married him with the reputation he had in the industry long since established. She knew. The only thing she didn’t know was that society would change enough for it to effect her.

    • Pinellas Pixie says:

      Of course she knew. I have friends who live in tiny towns in the midwest and they have been talking about Harvey’s crimes for at least 10 years. If they knew, there is no way that anyone living and/or working in Hollywood did not know. Most turned a blind eye because they stood to benefit in some way or didn’t want to anger him bc he was a powerful man. She knew. Meryl knew. They all knew.

  8. cassandra says:

    Honestly, despite being an insane amount of money to most people, that’s kind of small considering his wealth and the social circle they ran in.

    I wonder how much of his fortune is going to legal fees and civil suits? Although I’m sure the children have pretty deep trust funds as well.

    • Golly Gee says:

      His ex-wife Eve? was also making noise about getting a cut because she was getting alimony from him. She has one or two children with him but I think they may be adults or almost adults now. So I’m not sure whether she was able to obtain a settlement or not.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Correction: just looked it up, and he has three daughters with Eve Chilton. The youngest one is 18 years old.

  9. Katherine says:

    Wait, 300 for each year and 400 after ten, that amounts to several billion?? Oh, it’s thousands, not millions, makes sense.

  10. Marietta says:

    Will serve the rest of his life in jail……..see Bill Cosby…
    Also see Katie Couric wearing her dress and tagging her allover SM. Mother of the bride dress.

  11. Digital Unicorn says:

    I feel for their children who will be impacted the most out of this – she’ll be ok, she’s white and connected.

    Marchesa will never be a celebrity brand now – so far it has survived largely as it appeals to a certain demographic. Don’t hate on me but I kinda like the Bridal wear – although saying that it looks samey to what other designers do.

  12. A. Key says:

    Man, Adrien Brody really screwed up his professional life with his personal one (the irony of him once commenting how those should be separate for an artist). He is really such a talented actor, but boy oh boy his personal choices in life kill all the appeal…

    • Lena says:

      Yeah what’s with him needing a showmance? He’s afraid we won’t care about him unless we can talk about who he’s with? I still can’t get over the fact this woman cheated with Harvey, married him and had his kids. Just so gross to contemplate.

      • Mia4s says:

        “Showmance”? I hate to break it to you but New York gossip will confirm they’ve been together a long time out of the public eye. Like, over a year. I know, this whole thing is…yikes…but evidence suggests they’re legit. 😬

        Which when you really think about it? Kind of makes an uncomfortable amount of sense.

      • Golly Gee says:

        They’ve been dating for almost two years actually. And yes, they have not been much in the public eye although I don’t know if that’s to avoid being associated with Harvey Weinstein news or because they are private people.

  13. Imara219 says:

    I just get the impression she’s not an Erika Jayne figure who knew the details and was willingly helping her husband be a criminal. To that end, I’ll give a small pass. It appears that she had a well designed exit plan and just executed it well. I suppose it helps that her family is independently wealthy from Harvey.

  14. psl says:

    How did I not know Weinstein is a father? That makes him even more of a monster. He has a daughter!

    • Golly Gee says:

      He actually has four daughters. Three of them are young adults from his first wife, Eve Chilton.

  15. Southern Fried says:

    Georgina was a part of Project Runway, judge, a couple of seasons and I never heard complaints about her. She was a good judge, terrific addition. Other than that I wish she’d stop lightening up her hair, it looks cheap on her. Her dark hair was much better. I’ve noticed many celebrities doing it and rarely does it work imo.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Gray hair coming in is “easier” to hide with lightened hair than dark hair, that’s why so many do that. You can also go longer btwn touch ups.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        @(TheOG) Jan90067 – Haha, that’s exactly what I did! My mom calls me “blondie” now because my hair is so light, but it’s a great way to camouflage the grey. :-)

  16. lucy2 says:

    I feel for the kids. They have a lot to work through as they grow up and understand what their father did.

  17. Merricat says:

    45, my eye. Automatically add 5-10 years to almost every actor/person in showbiz.

  18. Margo says:

    She looks unhealthy – so slender yet her face is so full.

    • Justwastingtime says:

      Fillers. She really looks frail, I know thin is in but you don’t want to look weak when you are older.

  19. Sunnyvale says:

    I just get an icy vibe whenever I see her pics. It was known for YEARS that they had an arrangement, an open marriage in exchange for her she got to have Alist actresses walk the red carpet in her dresses. I don’t know how far she’s involved in his sick behaviour but let’s not ignore the fact that initially she was defending Harvey until the NYtimes report & 50+ more victims came forward

  20. Lola says:

    There were rumors that Adrien Brody was blacklisted in Hollywood for a long time after abusing a very well-connected woman. Interesting to see him starting to make his way back in now.

    • Pinellas Pixie says:

      Based on what you say, it makes sense they would be together. Two outcasts found each other and will fight their way back.

  21. Maria says:

    I’m a huge Angelina’s fan and years ago when she was part of her bigger mistake -brangelina- I always asked myself why she didn’t wear Marchesa in the red carpet (and she was several opportunities of that). When Weinstein was exposed I realized the reason. My point: every a-list woman in HW knew about his predatory behavior, even Angie warned to other women.

  22. The Recluse says:

    I’m a little distracted by her bones poking out. I thought that went out in the 90′s.

  23. My3cents says:

    I think the best thing for her to do is to live a quite life away for the spotlight with her children ,all of her millions and homes.

  24. taffy says:

    opportunistic, complicit hag.
    i hope her crap gowns end up at the TJMaxx clearance section.

  25. Bettyrose says:

    I don’t know what to think about her and what she knew. I still sort of feel like all that wealth won’t erase the trauma of having been intimate with that grotesque man but she made her own choices. And I’m sure the kids will be fine. With that age difference, there was always a high probability they’d lose their father at a young age, but prison for rape
    can’t be easy for them to comprehend and once they do it’ll be awful. I’m guessing they’ll change their last names at some point.

  26. Justwastingtime says:

    Am guessing that they quickly put the money aside 3 years ago to keep it away from lawsuits .. tho I also hear that HW hasn’t paid a penny personally on the settlements..as it came from insurance but that may not be the case now
