However, according to the New York Times, she was one of the women he paid off in a private settlement.
Yesterday, Georgina Chapman managed to smile for cameras as she emerged from the couple’s million Manhattan home, refusing to comment on the scandal.
The newspaper said it had identified at least eight previously undisclosed instances in which Weinstein had paid money, sometimes as much as 0,000 (£115,000), to settle ‘complaints about his lewd behaviour’ covering nearly three decades.
They reportedly included the brunette actress Rose Mc Gowan — who starred in the supernatural drama series Charmed — as well as a fashion model.
Weinstein issued a statement saying: ‘I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologise for it.
The son of a diamond cutter from suburban New York, Weinstein and his brother Bob used the profits from a concert promotion business to set up their film distribution company, Miramax — named after their parents — in the Seventies.
Their first hit was The Secret Policeman’s Other Ball, a collection of live performances by British comedians and musicians in aid of Amnesty International.
Weinstein, who was made a CBE by Tony Blair’s government for services to the British film industry, said he particularly wanted to ‘earn the forgiveness’ of the star actress Ashley Judd.
In an account of his bullying behaviour, which was echoed by a string of other women, Judd described how, in the late Nineties, Weinstein lured her to what she thought would be a breakfast meeting in his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel in LA to discuss film roles.
