Harvey Weinstein Accused of Sexual Harassment

Harvey Weinstein’s wife of 10 years, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, is leaving him amid continuing sexual harassment allegations against the producer.

People reported that the decision comes as more women continue to come forward alleging decades of sexual harassment by Weinstein, 65.

“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 in a statement to People. “Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”

The New York Times reported Thursday that, over decades, Weinstein reached eight settlements with women who accused him of unwanted physical contact and sexual assault.

On Tuesday, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie both came forward, sharing their own experiences with Weinstein, saying that the powerful movie producer sexually harassed them. Three other women have accused Weinstein of rape, according to a report from The New Yorker.

Weinstein and Chapman are parents to India Pearl, 7, and Dashiell Max Robert, 4.

On Friday, Weinstein told The Daily Mail that his family was sticking by his side.

“I have had tough conversations with my family -- really tough ones -- but my family is standing with me,” he said. “I have a journey and I have to prove to every person that’s out there that I’m worthy of them and I have to prove to my family the same thing.

“This is going to be a journey, a lonely journey, but a journey where my wife and kids couldn’t be stronger and couldn’t be standing behind me more.”

Weinstein was fired from his film studio Sunday, hours after he reportedly emailed a plea to Hollywood CEOs and moguls to prevent the ousting.

The friendships forged in college don’t always last. 

But it turns out that the one Dayton realtor Shannon Jackson and Omarosa Manigault-Newman formed in a Central State University communications class 26 years ago was made out of super strong stuff.

“We connected on so many different levels,” said Manigault-Newman, a reality TV star and former assistant and a director of communications in the President Donald Trump administration. “She’s has had my back through good times and bad times and through rough patches.”

The public is invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. at the new office. 

Jackson said she chose the neighborhood partly because it is central located, as her business serves all of the Miami Valley. 

She said she also is happy to contribute to Wright-Dunbar  revitalization. The building also contains the City of Dayton’s Innerwest Priority Board office. 

“I want to see the westside grow and develop, and I want to be a part of it,” Jackson said.

The office will have about 10 to 15 agents, Jackson said. 

Manigault-Newman now lives in Jacksonville, Florida and married Pastor John Allen Newman, the senior pastor of The Sanctuary at Mount Calvary, last year. 

An ordained minister herself, Manigault-Newman works with her husband. The Toledo native studied at the United Theological Seminary in Dayton and the Payne Theological Seminary in Wilberforce.

She said she and Jackson both share a deep connection to their mothers and keep faith as the center of everything they do. 

 “Our marriages are based on hope, faith and love,” she said. “This move into her new physical space is a move so she can help the community more. So people can experience the greatest thing you can as an American and that is to be a homeowner.”

E! News reported that Davidson got two tattoos in tribute to Grande: a bunny ear mask behind his ear, in reference to her 2017 album cover for “Dangerous Woman,” and the initials AG on his thumb. On June 2, Grande performed at Wango Tango with a sparkler on her left ring finger.

Neither Davidson nor Grande hasn’t commented on the reports, but  Grande did somewhat cryptically tweet, “I love u (so much) OK bye,” punctuated with multiple emojis of a monkey covering its eyes.
