Moving van is spotted outside Harvey Weinstein’s family home

It appears Georgina Chapman is leaving behind the one last relic of the life she once had with Harvey Weinstein. 

Moving trucks could be seen outside the six-story West Village apartment Chapman and Weinstein once shared with their two young children on Monday. 

Weinstein sold the apartment for $25.13million in March after Chapman filed for divorce in the wake of the disgraced mogul’s #MeToo scandal. 

More than 100 women have accused Weinstein of rape, sexual assault, or harassment since the New York Times expose was published in October.

A man could be seen moving stacks of large boxes and crates outside the home, which Weinstein purchased for $14.95million in 2006, a year before the couple wed

A deed filed with the NYC Department of Finance Office that was obtained by DailyMail.com shows that Cheget LLC paid for the property.

It is not known who is behind Cheget LLC, which was set up in February in New York and lists a Manhattan law office as its address.

But Cheget LLC is the same Manhattan law office that previously worked with The Weinstein Company on a debt restructuring.

The date of the sale was March 19, which was also the first day that Chapman was spotted in Manhattan after fleeing the city with her two children at the height of the scandal.

Chapman first found refuge in Los Angeles before spending an extended amount of time in London, where her parents live, once the allegations broke. 

Weinstein has sold a number of properties in the last few months as his legal battles have continued to mount up. 

Weeks after he offloaded the West Village townhouse, the former movie mogul sold his $1.8million mock-Tudor cottage in Hollywood. 

Weinstein also sold one Westport, Connecticut home for $16.5million in October, and two neighboring properties in the same town for $10million and $6million earlier this year.

Chapman has been staying at the West Village townhouse since returning to New York from London, where she took her children in the wake of Weinstein's scandal

He put his Hamptons home on the market as well and it was sold in January for $10million. 

The total price paid for all six properties was $70.9million. Weinstein made a profit off all the sales with the exception of his Hamptons home, taking a $2million loss.

Weinstein’s West Village home was recently discussed in a Vogue profile about Chapman and her life following the enormous scandal.

Reporter Jonathan Van Meter noted that while the apartment had the designer’s stamp ‘all over it’, it had been stripped of anything Weinstein-related. 

‘All evidence of the original occupant would appear to have been scrubbed away – except for a large piece of art hanging in the hallway,’ Meter writes. 

‘At the bottom, it is signed, “For Harvey Weinstein”‘. 

It was in the Vogue profile that Chapman revealed her intentions of moving the couple’s children upstate.

‘As soon as this happened, I had this crazy vision,’ she said. ‘I know what I need to do. I need to move to a farm upstate.’

‘My daughter loves riding, my son responds to animals. I need to build a farm.’ 

Just weeks after the profile was released, it was reported that Chapman had placed a bid on a property in Westchester, New York.

Sources reported that the residence is located in an ‘A-list celebrity neighborhood’.

Chapman and Weinstein reached a divorce agreement back in January. 

The prenuptial agreement she signed will reportedly pay her out between $15 and $20million after 10 years of marriage. 

Chapman will also get custody of their daughter India, seven, and their five-year-old son Dashiell.

Chapman, who went in hiding for five months after the scandal broke, has maintained that she was never suspicious of her husband.  

‘That’s what makes this so incredibly painful: I had what I thought was a very happy marriage. I loved my life,’ she said. 

Meanwhile, Weinstein has just lost a bid  to have a new lawsuit accusing him of sex trafficking thrown out of court.

Earlier this month a judge gave permission  for British actress Kadian Noble to continue with her suit, which accuses Weinstein of violating laws against sex trafficking by luring her to his Cannes hotel room with the false promise of a role for the purpose of sex.

US District Judge Robert W. Sweet agreed with Noble’s lawyers that the exchange could constitute a ‘commercial sex act’, and rejected defense arguments that ‘nothing of value’ was exchanged during the encounter.

 Weinstein invited Noble to his hotel room in February 2014 to watch her demo reel before allegedly molesting her and forcing her into a bathroom to watch him masturbate. 

Weinstein is currently facing a number of legal battles stemming from numerous assault and harassment allegations. He is pictured here after pleading not guilty to a sex crime in New York
