Vastavam web: Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife Georgina Chapman has opened up about the sexual harassment scandal that saw the downfall of the powerful Hollywood producer, saying she “never suspected” him of any wrongdoing.”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.” Chapman, 42, told Vogue in an interview for the June issue of American Vogue.”I had what I thought was a very happy marriage. I loved my life,” she said.
In the aftermath of the scandal, Chapman had announced that she was separating from Weinstein, with whom she has two children — seven year-old India and five-year-old Dashiell.Chapman, who founded the brand Marchesa with her friend Keren Craig, said she avoided going out in public for five months after the story broke.”I was so humiliated and so broken… that… I didn’t think it was respectful to go out,” she said. When she first became aware about the allegations against Weinstein, Chapman said she lost “ten pounds in five days. I couldn’t keep food down.” It took her two days to accept the reality.
“My head was spinning. And it was difficult because the first article was about a time long before I’d ever met him, so there was a minute where I couldn’t make an informed decision. And then the stories expanded and I realized that this wasn’t an isolated incident. And I knew that I needed to step away and take the kids out of here,” Chapman said.Recently, actor Scarlett Johansson wore a Marchesa at the Met Gala in New York. She was the first celebrity in months to wear the label at a high-profile event.
