NEW YORK — Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife, Georgina Chapman, has given her first interview since scandal erupted around her husband, saying that she never knew about his alleged sexual misconduct, and breaking down in sobs when speaking about their two small children.

In an interview in Vogue’s June issue, posted online Thursday, Chapman said she had “what I thought was a very happy marriage. I loved my life.” Asked if she had suspicions about her husband’s behavior, she said: “Absolutely not. Never.”

“There was a part of me that was terribly naive – clearly, so naive,” she said. “I have moments of rage, I have moments of confusion, I have moments of disbelief! And I have moments when I just cry for my children. What are their lives going to be? What are people going to say to them?” Her interviewer wrote that Chapman broke down in tears at this point. “It’s like, they love their dad. They love him. I just can’t bear it for them!”

The interview comes seven months after Chapman announced she was divorcing Weinstein, who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual abuse, including assault and rape. Since issuing that statement, she has remained out of public view.

Her fashion line, Marchesa, canceled its show for February’s New York Fashion Week, and Marchesa gowns were nowhere to be seen at awards shows like the Golden Globes and the Oscars.
