Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman is leaving him in the wake of the multitude of sexual harassment allegations made against him in the past few days.

Weinstein initially claimed his wife of ten years, whom he has two children with, "stands 100 per cent behind me", but today she gave a statement to People saying she has chosen to leave him.

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," the the statement reads.

"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."

The expose revealed decades of accusations of assault against women, including actress Ashleigh Judd.

Weinstein was fired from his own company this week, and the list of actresses alleging inappropriate sexual advances, if not outright rape, against him continues to grow.

The allegations first emerged after a New York Times piece was published detailing several incidents involving actresses like Ashley Judd.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have today joined the group of women accusing him of sexual harassment.

Weinstein is a famed producer, having co-founded the Miramax company with his brother Bob and then creating the Weinstein Company in 2005.

He has been the executive producer of several many films, including The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, The English Patient, Scream, Good will Hunting, The Cider House Rules, Inglourious Basterds, The King's Speech, The Artist and dozens more.
