Georgia Chapman has broken her silence about Harvey Weinstein — her soon-to-be ex-husband.
The Marchesa designer left Weinstein in October 2017 after news broke of his alleged serial sexual assault. More than 50 women have since accused him or misconduct and rape. The couple had been married for 10 years and have two children together.
“I have moments of rage, I have moments of confusion, I have moments of disbelief! And I have moments when I just cry for my children. What are their lives going to be?” she stated in a Vogue interview. “My head was spinning. And it was difficult because the first article was about a time long before I’d ever met him, so there was a minute where I couldn’t make an informed decision. And then the stories expanded and I realized that this wasn’t an isolated incident. And I knew that I needed to step away and take the kids out of here.”
Chapman says she kept a low profile until now out of respect for the women hurt by her soon-to-be ex. She also decided not to offer dresses for awards season, despite red carpets typically being lined with her designs.
“I don’t want to be viewed as a victim because I don’t think I am. I am a woman in a sh*t situation, being it’s not unique,” she explained.
