Harvey Weinstein Says Wife Is '100 Percent Behind Me' Amid Explosive Sexual Harassment Claims
The Hollywood mogul admitted that he's had "tough conversations" with his wife following Thursday's expose in "The New York Times."
"I’ve gotta go to work,” he told photographers Friday morning.
The Pulp Fiction-producer is saying his wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, "stands 100 percent behind me" in the wake of the bombshell allegations reported by The Times on Thursday.
She is the co-founder of fashion label Marchesa, which is a favorite of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway. She's also appeared as a guest judge on Project Runway, which is produced by Weinstein.
Just as The Times reported the sexual harassment allegations from multiple women, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, Weinstein's wife was unveiling her new bridal collection on Instagram, which turned out to be bad timing.
Rose McGowan, who reportedly received a $100,000 settlement after an alleged episode in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival, tweeted: "anyone who does business with __ is complicit. And deep down you know you are even dirtier. Cleanse yourselves."

McGowan is believed to have left Weinstein’s name out because she signed a non-disclosure agreement.
The actress starred in a handful of films that Weinstein and his brother, Bob, produced, including her breakout picture, 1996’s Scream.
The caustic Entourage character Harvey Weingard was said to be based on Weinstein.
Meanwhile, attorney Lisa Bloom, who has made her name as an advocate for women, is raising eyebrows by representing Weinstein.
"I need to be fair to Harvey and say he does not acknowledge it's sexual harassment. What he acknowledges is misconduct — loose words — and the biggest thing he acknowledges, which I have seen myself, is that he has got an anger problem," she told Inside Edition.
Many on social media have labeled Bloom a “hypocrite” and “phony.”
"I am advising Harvey and I think that there are a lot of different ways to get to the goal," Bloom added. "This was an opportunity to be on the inside and work directly with somebody to handle this in a way that is respectful to women."
Weinstein has vowed to sue The Times claiming the article was "saturated with false and defamatory statements.”
