In Oct. 2017, the Marchesa co-founder announced her decision to leave the film producer in light of several sexual misconduct allegations made against him. The couple, who wed in 2007 and have two children together, finalized their divorce in early 2018. She walked away with an estimated $15-20 million and primary custody of 9-year-old India and 6-year-old Dashiell, but as a source tells E! News, Georgina is “very sad” about the future her family faces.
Weinstein is preparing to face possible jail time after being convicted on two of five charges related to rape and criminal sexual activity.
“There’s no winning in this situation,” our source shares, “just sadness all around. [Georgina] is sad for all of the women who have been affected by Harvey’s actions. She is sad for her kids whose lives have been forever changed and have a long road ahead. She’s sad that their father will likely be in prison and that they won’t have much of a relationship with him.”

“She knew this was coming and she wanted to be prepared for her children and what this would mean for them,” the source adds. “She has had some contact with Harvey but he doesn’t see the kids much. It’s a very sad time for everyone who has been impacted.”
Georgina has not commented publicly on her ex-husband’s conviction, but in 2018 she described feeling “humiliated” by the scandal in an interview with Vogue.
“What are their lives going to be?” she wondered aloud, referencing their children. “What are people going to say to them? It’s like, they love their dad. They love him. I just can’t bear it for them!”
