Harvey Weinstein’s Wife Meeting with Divorce Lawyers Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal
In the midst of Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal, wife Georgina Chapman is reportedly searching for a powerhouse divorce lawyer.
Earlier this week, Chapman announced that she was leaving Weinstein. She said, "My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
Page Six reports that the Marchesa designer approached legal firm Pryor Cashman, where famed divorce lawyer Judith Poller works. A rep for the firm told the site, “As of this time, we have NOT been retained by Georgina Chapman.”
Poller is known for working with big names, including Scarlett Johansson and Drew Barrymore with their recent splits. A source told People magazine, "Judith is known for her discretion and handling divorces very privately. Considering the media circus surrounding the Weinstein story and the fact that Georgina has two young kids, that's likely something she would want to look for.”
Weinstein is reportedly heading to rehab in Arizona. TMZ obtained photos of the disgraced producer having dinner near the thousand-dollar-a-night resort where he may be staying. A source told “Extra” that he may have been drunk at the dinner, even walking into a wall on his way to the bathroom.
