The designer separated from the film producer last October, after numerous actresses and employees accuse her ex-husband of harassment and sexual assault…
Georgina Champan will not leave empty-handed after their separation and subsequent divorce from Harvey Weinstein. The British designer could win almost 12 million dollars (about 10 million euros to change) thanks to the prenuptial agreement that the couple signed before their wedding in 2007, as confirmed by People magazine.
According to the prenuptial agreement, Chapman must receive $ 300,000 annually as spousal maintenance during the first nine years of marriage. After the tenth year, which has been completed on December 15 while they are separated, the figure rises to $ 400,000 that if multiplied by the 10 years they were together make a total of four million.
To this amount, and as detailed by the TMZ gossip portal, we must add the marital assets, for which the designer of Marchesa will receive $ 250,000 annuities during the first five years of marriage and $ 700,000 for each additional year which is equivalent to almost five million dollars. In addition, there is a housing allowance set at $ 25,000 per month of marriage, which adds up to a total of three million dollars.
In addition to the economic conditions, the prenuptial agreement also includes the commitment of both of them not to publish memories, letters or stories or make interviews that refer to their personal business or financial matters.
The former wife of Weinstein decided to separate last October after the accusations of several actresses and employees who claimed to have been subject to sexual harassment and aggression by the producer. Weinstein, 65, and Chapman, 41, were married in 2007 and have two children together, India Pearl, 7, and Dashiell Max Robert, 4.
“My heart is broken by all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions, I have decided to leave my husband, taking care of my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time. “, Chapman then said in a statement to People magazine. Weinstein, meanwhile, supported the decision of who has been his partner during the last decade and, through his spokesman, wrote a note stating that in the future the situation could be fixed. “I’m in therapy and, perhaps, when it’s better, we can rebuild [the relationship]. I understand her, I love her and I love our children and, hopefully, when she is better I will be in her life again, “said the note that collected Page Six after the announcement of separation of Chapman.
The producer and the British designer met at a party in Manhattan in 2004, the same year that Chapman co-founded his clothing firm and shortly after he divorced his first wife, Eve Chilton Weinstein, with whom he was married for 17 years.
The Weinstein case is one of the biggest sex scandals the Hollywood industry has gone through in recent decades. Important stars such as Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan and more recently Salma Hayek are some of the more than one hundred women who have denounced the film producer for harassment or sexual abuse and even rape. Weinstein was the first to fall, but not the only one. After him came Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Louis CK, Russell Simmons, Geoffrey Rush and James Toback among others.
