DISGRACED movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of sex crimes and is now serving a 23-year prison stint.
But who was he married to? Here is everything you need to know about Weinstein's former wife, Georgina Chapman.
Who is Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife Georgina Chapman?
Georgina Rose Chapman was born April 14, 1976, and is an English fashion designer and actress.
Along with former model Keren Craig, she is a co-founder of the fashion label Marchesa.
She is the daughter of journalist Caroline Wonfor and multi-millionaire Brian Chapman, who owned organic coffee company Percol.
She attended Marlborough College in Wiltshire – where Kate Middleton went to school – and got into modelling in her twenties with a Head And Shoulders ad.
Georgina began dating Harvey Weinstein in 2004 after he left his first wife.
They married on December 15, 2007, and their divorce was finalised in January 2018 in a mega million deal.
They have a daughter and son together.
Georgina has an estimated wealth of £15million.
This is largely down to her fashion brand Marchesa, but according to the New York Post. her divorce from Weinstein was estimated to be worth between £11.1 million ($15million) and £14.8 million ($20million).
Georgina has appeared as a judge on Project Runway: All Stars as well as in films such as Shanghai Knights and Bride And Prejudice.
What has Georgina Chapman said about Weinstein?
In 2017, Georgina said she was leaving Weinstein following the sexual allegations made against him.
She told People magazine she needs time away from the producer – and reports claim she is leaning on former political aide Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced former US congressman Anthony Weiner, for support.
In a statement Georgia 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.”
Weinstein said he "encouraged" his wife to leave him and admitted the sexual harassment scandal has torn apart their marriage.
After it was announced she was leaving him, the producer released a statement saying: "Over the last week, there has been a lot of pain for my family that I take responsibility for.
"I sat down with my wife Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family.
"We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. In the end, she made the decision to separate.
"I understand, 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 counselling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild."
The producer agreed to an eight-figure deal to end their nearly 10 year marriage.
In May 2018 she told Vogue she felt "humiliated and broken" by the allegations.
She told the publication: "There was a part of me that was terribly naive—clearly, so naive.
"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."
She is yet to comment since Weinstein was sentenced to 23-years behind bars on charges of first-degree sex crimes and third-degree rape, and could face jail.
Who is Georgina Chapman new boyfriend Adrien Brody?
Georgina Chapman is dating American actor and producer Adrien Brody.
The pair made their public debut together at the Tribeca Film Festival in June 2021 and were then spotted a week later during a trip to Los Angeles with the designer’s two children.
Georgina had met her new man through her ex-husband after Adrien starred in two Miramax productions, Hollywoodland and Jailbreakers.
But, Adrien had enjoyed success on the big screen long before then.
In 2002, Brody won the Academy Award for best actor after his acclaimed performance as Władysław Szpilman in holocaust drama The Pianist.
He then starred in other Hollywood blockbusters such as Peter Jackson's King Kong (2008) and Nimród Antal's Predators (2010).
However, Adrien has come under criticism by many fans who have expressed outrage for his work with directors who have numerous accusations of sexual assault.

The Pianist, for which Brody made his name, was directed by Roman Polanski who is believed to have fled the country in 1978 while awaiting sentencing for unlawful intercourse with a minor.
A decade later, Brody had a role in 2011’s Midnight In Paris – written and directed by Woody Allen.
It followed a number of claims by many Hollywood stars that they would not work with Woody, 85, after years of assertions from Dylan Farrow that her mum Mia's partner at the time “sexually abused” her as a child.
