In her first interview following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, an emotional Georgina Chapman reveals she worries for her kids with the disgraced movie mogul. Georgina, who filed for divorce shortly after the sexual misconducts allegations surfaced against her husband, is struggling to adjust to life as a single mom.
"There was a part of me that was terribly naïve — clearly, so naïve. I have moments of rage. I have moments of confusion. I have moments of disbelief," Georgina told Vogue magazine before admitting she "just cries" for her children India, 7, and Dashiell, 5. "What are their lives going to be? What are people going to say to them? It's like, they love their dad. They love him. I just can't bear it for them." She quickly flew her kids to LA and then to London, where they stayed with friends and family amid the media storm.
She went on to explain how she lost weight 10 pounds in five days after being blindsided by the news and remains adamant that she did not know anything about Harvey's lewd behavior. "That's what makes this so incredibly painful: I had what I thought was a very happy marriage," she said. "I loved my life." She also went on to claim that Harvey was still an amazing person, despite the allegations against him.
"He paid for a friend of mine's mother, who had breast cancer, to go to a top doctor. He was amazing like that. He is amazing like that. That is the tough part of this… this black-and-white thing… life isn't like that," she continued. However, she doesn't consider herself a victim, but rather, "a woman in a s–t situation, but it's not unique."
Now, Georgina is focused on her family and is seeing a therapist to help her cope. "At first I couldn't, because I was too shocked. And I somehow felt that I didn't deserve it. And then I realized: 'This has happened. I have to own it. I have to move forward," she explained. "I'm just living moment to moment. Is it difficult? Of course. But one adjusts. Is it going to be for the worse? Maybe not."
Harvey is currently facing multiple lawsuits and criminal investigations in Los Angeles, New York, and London.
