Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein's wife of 10 years, said she is dumping him after revelations of alleged sexual allegations with numerous women, including some of the industry's most well-known actresses, Variety reported.

Chapman, 41, a Marchesa fashion designer, has been married to the motion picture mogul, 65, since 2007 and has two children with him – a daughter, India Pearl, and a son, Dashiell, Variety stated.

Meanwhile, TMZ reported that Weinstein was seen boarding a private jet on Tuesday night, bound for a rehabilitation center in Europe for sex addiction.

TMX said Harvey decided to take the advice of the people around him and leave immediately, citing sources, and that he will enter a live-in facility that deals both with sex and other behavioral issues.

"He has his moments where there are bursts, but for the most part he's pretty calm," TMZ quoted a source.

Weinstein was considered one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood, but was fired from the company he co-founded when The New York Times revealed he allegedly sexually harassed actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, among others.

The New Yorker magazine followed on Tuesday with its own story slamming Weinstein with fresh accusations from Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette.

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," Chapman said in a statement to People magazine on Tuesday. "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."

Weinstein and his Weinstein company helped usher in a long string of award-winning movies that were also box office sensations, like "Sex, Lies, and Videotape," "The English Patient," "Pulp Fiction," "The Crying Game," "Shakespeare in Love," and "The King’s Speech," stated the New Yorker.

The magazine said that Weinstein was also a major fundraiser for numerous Democratic Party candidates, including the presidential campaigns of President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Chapman's company had benefited from the Weinstein Company, supplying elaborately beaded and lacy gowns to several stars of its movies, Variety stated.

Weinstein had told the New York Post earlier that his wife was "100 percent behind him," but acknowledged the breakup in a statement Tuesday.

"​I support her decision, I am in counseling and perhaps, when I am better, we can rebuild," Weinstein said in the statement to the Post. "Over the last week, there has been a lot of pain for my family that I take responsibility for. I sat down with my wife Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family.”

"We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart. I understand, I love her and I love our children and hopefully, when I am better, I will be in their lives again," he continued.
