Georgina Chapman, the wife of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, has announced that she is leaving him now that numerous allegations of his sexual misconduct against women have become public.

Chapman released a statement to People magazine about her separation from Weinstein.

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband," Chapman said. "Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time."

The couple were married in 2007 and have two children, one of whom is seven years old and one of whom is four. Weinstein is 65 years old and Chapman is 41.

Initially, Weinstein had said Chapman was going to stay with him when these reports, starting with the New York Times bombshell, were coming to light.

He said, "She stands 100 percent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length."

Weinstein, a major donor to the Democratic Party, was fired from his film studio, the Weinstein Company on Sunday.

Since the stories about Weinstein became publicly known, many stepped forward saying that Weinstein's actions were "public knowledge" in Hollywood.
