Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has lost his position at the production company that bears his name, the respect of many of his friends and colleagues, and he is being investigated for sexual assault. He is also likely to lose his wife of 10 years, Georgina Chapman. According to reports printed in New Jersey and elsewhere, Chapman is assembling a team of attorneys to process her high asset divorce.
The couple just passed their 10-year anniversary. They have a prenuptial agreement in place, and it is rumored that, if their divorce is not final by the 11-year mark, Chapman stands to receive considerably more. As it stands, she is rumored to get spousal support of $400,000 per year.
In addition to alimony, Chapman will get a payment of $250,000 for each of the first five years of the marriage, then $700,000 for each additional year. That number is said to rise to $1 million per year if the marriage passes the 11th year. Chapman also gets a monthly housing allowance of $25,000, capped at $3 million.
Georgina Chapman is far from a trophy wife; she’s a co-founder of the Marchesa fashion line and is well-known in that industry. Because her name is so closely associated with Marchesa, Chapman could make the argument that her husband’s behavior and public shame has cost her significant financial losses. If the case goes to court, the judge could alter or ignore the terms laid out in the prenuptial agreement. The only thing that’s clear in this high asset divorce is that readers in New Jersey and elsewhere are likely to learn far more about the couple in the months to come.
