As disturbing allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein continue to pile up, the disgraced mogul is also facing a divorce. While a high asset divorce is probably not the worst of Weinstein's problems of late, it is something he'll have to address in the coming months. It's rumored that his wife of nearly 10 years, Georgina Chapman, is gathering a team of lawyers as she prepares to end the marriage. Florida residents may find it hard to avoid details of both Weinstein's alleged acts and the couple's divorce.
The couple have a prenup in place that allows Chapman $300,000 per year in spousal support. Should the marriage last 10 years or more, that number would go up to $400,000. In regard to marital assets, Chapman would receive an additional $250,000 per year for the first five years, then $700,000 for each additional year of marriage.
There is no word on a divorce filing as of yet. While Weinstein continues to reel after losing his role at his production company and may be facing criminal charges, Chapman has the luxury of time to determine her next steps. That can make a world of difference in the final outcome of the matter.
Far from a trophy wife, Chapman is a successful fashion designer with a thriving career of her own. The couple have two young children together, so child custody and child support will also come into play during their high asset divorce. As the matter moves forward, Florida readers are likely to learn more about the couple and the accusations against Harvey Weinstein.
