Is The Disgraced Harvey Weinstein Too Broke To Pay Child Support??

Harvey Weinstein told his ex-wife he is facing a cash crunch and can't afford to pay child support for their two daughters for "at least one year", according to a newly released court ruling. That showing is necessary under the law to force Weinstein to prepay the child support.

The ruling was published under an Anonymous v.

Marchesa previously announced plans to show at New York Fashion Week in February, but a newly released lookbook makes it clear that the label does not plan on taking a work hiatus anytime soon.

Weinstein's criminal lawyer Benjamin Brafman said Friday his client never said his payments would come to a halt.

That was said to be the result of Weinstein dolling out much of his fortune to secure high-priced legal counsel while fighting back against over 100 allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

He was sacked from The Weinstein Company in the wake of blockbuster exposés in the New York Times and New Yorker, and multiple actresses have already filed lawsuits.


The request was ultimately denied because Chilton failed to show "a consistent pattern" of missed payments by Weinstein.

Weinstein no longer pays support for the couple's oldest daughter Lily, who is 22, but is still paying for daughters Emma, 19, and 15-month-old Ruth.

The pair had a prenuptial agreement, which stated that Weinstein must pay Chapman US$300,000 in spousal support for each year of the marriage; after 10 years, that figure was upped to US$400,000. "(There) are lawsuits not in four to five states, but perhaps four to five countries".

The money requested by Eve included more than $1.4 million in basic child support payments; $500,000 for healthcare; $124,000 for statutory add-ons; $500,000 for college and college prep; and various other expenses, plus money still owed to Chilton from the recent sale of a Westport, Conn., property.

Weinstein attorney Steven Silpe told the court Weinstein paid $850,000 to Chilton over the previous year alone.

Despite the pending divorce between Harvey Weinstein and his Marchesa fashion designer ex Georgina Chapman, Chapman and Marchesa co-founder Keren Craig are moving forward with their fashion business without interruption, and their latest move proves it.
