Few Texas residents are unaware of the recent sexual harassment allegations against one of Hollywood’s biggest and most successful producers. Harvey Weinstein and his accusers have dominated media coverage for weeks. What’s received considerably less coverage is the fact that his wife of 10 years is quietly planning to divorce her husband. Their high net worth divorce could make headlines in the months ahead.
Weinstein is married to Georgina Chapman, a successful fashion designer with a net worth rumored at nearly $20 million. That fortune pales in comparison to Weinstein’s net worth, however, which is estimated at $250 million. The couple have a prenuptial agreement in place, but a provision in the contract allegedly states that Chapman would receive considerably more money if the couple are still married at the 11-year mark.
The prenup is said to grant Chapman annual spousal support of $400,000. In addition, she’s slated to receive $250,000 for each of the first five years of their marriage, then $700,000 for each additional year. Another provision gives her a monthly housing allowance of $25,000, capped at $3 million.
Part of their agreement states that neither party will publish accounts of their personal lives, including diaries, photographs or memoirs. Therefore, a book deal seems out of the question for Chapman. Filmed interviews are also prohibited, so she’s not likely to make the rounds on talk shows or news programs.
As their high net worth divorce moves forward, Texas readers may learn more about the couple and their finances. Because Chapman is a high-profile fixture in the fashion world, and her name is connected to her Marchesa label, she may be able to make the argument that her husband’s disgraceful behavior has tarnished her brand and impeded her ability to maximize her earnings potential. If the matter goes before a court of law, the prenuptial agreement could be thrown out of court entirely.
