Harvey Weinstein's wife has announced their split in an appropriately savage statement.

Less than a week after a New York Times report detailed the extensive allegations of sexual harassment levelled at Hollywood film executive Harvey Weinstein, his wife has announced the couple are separating.

Georgina Chapman, the co-founder of fashion label Marchesa, told PEOPLE her priority at this time is her children, and dubbed the actions of her husband “unforgivable”.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. 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,” Chapman said in a statement to PEOPLE.

The couple, who married in 2007, have two children together, India Pearl, 7, and Dashiell Max Robert, 4.

The accusations of harassment - which have come from actresses Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, along with a slew of assistants working for the executive - have been compounded with even more women accusing the producer of assault, with three alleging rape.

On Wednesday, Ronan Farrow released a 10-month investigation on The New Yorker, where 13 women alleged sexual misconduct by Weinstein, while a further 16 former and current executives and assistants said they “witnessed or had knowledge of unwanted sexual advances and touching at events associated with Weinstein’s films and in the workplace".

The piece was accompanied by a recording of a man believed to be Weinstein, who is heard admitting to the assault of Filipino-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez in 2015.

In a statement to Page Six in the days after the allegations were made public, Weinstein said he wife was standing "behind him".

“She stands 100 per cent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length. We went out with [attorney] Lisa Bloom last night when we knew the article was coming out. Georgina will be with Lisa and others kicking my ass to be a better human being and to apologise to people for my bad behaviour, to say I’m sorry, and to absolutely mean it.”

On Saturday, two days after the New York Times report was published, Weinstein's lawyer Lisa Bloom resigned as one of his advisors.
