Celebrity relationships and marriages often appear to be a fairytale until they end. Just like the end of any marriage in New Jersey, a celebrity's divorce can be painful, humiliating and bitter. Unfortunately for celebrities, all of their marital secrets are splashed in the media for anyone to read. Georgina Chapman has recently announced her separation and plans for divorce from her husband, Harvey Weinstein, after multiple women have accused him of sexual assault.
Georgina Chapman, who is now 41 years old, began a relationship with her 65-year-old husband more than 10 years ago, after he helped her start her fashion design business. Not only did he support her business financially, but he used his Hollywood connections to encourage the growth of her fashion line. She owns and operates the fashion line Marchesa, which is reportedly suffering due to the allegations against her husband. More than 40 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct in the last couple of weeks.
Reportedly, Harvey Weinstein's wife was not aware of his alleged misconduct against women, although she was aware that he often lost his temper. She has been heard over the years apologizing for some of his behavior. Reports from inside his production company indicated that he was an aggressive business man, often threatening others to get his way.
In addition to having to separate their estate, wealth and properties, the couple also have two children who will be affected by their divorce. Although most couples do not have to read about their estrangement in the media, it is not a pleasant experience or easy to navigate the process of dissolving a marriage. Most individuals find a family law attorney in New Jersey to be of assistance to advocate for them or their children as they journey through the divorce proceedings.
