Harvey Weinstein's Ex-Wives Have Secured A $6 Million Freeze On His Assets
Former assistant producer Eve Chilton divorced him in 2004, and designer Georgina Chapman in 2017. The ex-wives decided to unite and obtained a $6 million freeze on Harvey Weinstein's assets in court. This was the only money he could manage: the rest of the accounts were blocked due to the bankruptcy of his company. This is reported by ABC News with reference to court documents and information. Now the producer has no funds left to file a court appeal and appeal the verdict. "He doesn't have the money to appeal. He can't spend anything without the approval of his ex-wives," the source said. Representatives for Chilton and Chapman declined to comment.
Recall that in March, Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison on charges of sexual assault. At the same time, the prosecution insisted on 29 years, the defense — on five. After the verdict, the producer's lawyer, Donna Rotunno, said an appeal would be filed in July. She promised to provide evidence of the court's bias, and also accused the judge of unfairness.
