Weinstein’s wife to get massive divorce settlement
GEORGINA Chapman could land a $15 million divorce settlement from disgraced hubby Harvey Weinstein after triggering a 10-year clause in their prenup agreement, it is claimed.
Prior to the anniversary, this figure - earmarked as spousal support - would only have been $380,000, TMZ reported.
The couple separated in the wake of the sexual assault and rape allegations against Weinstein, though no divorce proceedings have been launched.
On top of the spousal support payments, she gets $6.1 million in marital assets, as well as $3.8 million in housing allowance.
In total, this equals $15 million, a small drop in an ocean for Weinstein, who is reported to be worth around $331 million.
However, it was reported yesterday that the fallen movie mogul tried to raise $25 million from Netflix after he learned the allegations against him were about to go public.
The disgraced producer approached the popular TV and film streaming service for "emergency cash" after he discovered the New York Times and journalist Ronan Farrow were about to expose his alleged crimes, according to a Page Six source.
Weinstein, who released Peaky Blinders and Marco Polo on Netflix, allegedly did not tell execs why he needed the cash.
Netflix did not stump up the cash, it was reported.
The source said: "Clearly Harvey didn't go to Netflix saying he needed hush money.
"He put it into a business context, saying he was looking to sell the rights to parts of his (film) catalogue. But they were wise to decline."
Weinstein said the claims were "untrue" and "nonsense". He has also denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
