Harvey Weinstein’s wife Georgina Chapman, a fashion designer and
cofounder of the high-end brand Marchesa, is leaving him amid a series of sexual harassment and assault allegations against him.
But Weinstein seems hopeful about a potential future with his wife of 10 years, according to TMZ.
Weinstein told TMZ, “I love her and I love our children and hopefully, when I am better, I will be in their lives again. I support her decision, I am in counseling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild.”
Weinstein also said the couple discussed a separation, and that he “encouraged her to do what was in her heart.”
“In the end, she made the decision to separate,” he continued.
In a statement to People magazine on Tuesday, Chapman said, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. 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.”
On Tuesday evening, Weinstein reportedly left the country for a rehab facility in Europe.
