Married to her husband, Harvey Weinstein, since 2007, Georgina Chapman said that she never suspected her husband of anything.
In her first interview since the incident with Vogue Magazine, Georgina Chapman said “Absolutely not,” when asked if she had ever suspected her husband of anything. Seven months after being accused of sexual harassment and abuse by dozens of female victims, Georgina spoke to Vogue Magazine about the incident.
Chapman spoke about how naive she felt and that she felt “so humiliated and so broken”. She avoided going out in public for five months after the scandal happened, avoiding anyone and everyone and that she announced leaving him days after everything was exposed. “I thought, ‘who am I to be parading around with all of this going on?’. It’s still so very, very raw. I was walking up the stairs the other day and I stopped. It was like all the air had been punched out of my lungs,” she said to Vogue Magazine.
Vogue said that during the interview, Georgina would sob and wipe her tears away while speaking. She spoke to Vogue about her anger and confusion, saying “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. What are their lives going to be?” and “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.”
After the incident, she took both her children aged five and seven and stayed at an old friends house. When asked if she had any idea of what he was thinking or how his mind was working, she said: “Not really. Clearly, when I was married to him I didn’t know anything about his state of mind, so I’m probably not the best person to ask.”
