I’m starting to think that some celebrity gossip editor found a magic lamp at an antique store, and wished for three random Hollywood couples to spice up this month’s dating news. First there was Zooey Deschanel and a Property Brother, then the possibility of Jon Hamm and Lindsay Shookus. And now, according to The Sun, Adrien Brody is dating Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife Georgina Chapman.
It was reported by Page Six back in May that Marchesa’s sole designer Georgina Chapman allegedly had no plans to jump back into the dating pool after scrubbing away the awful stink of Harvey Weinstein. A source claimed Georgina needed a break, because the past couple of years have been very hard on her. The source added that all Georgina was thinking about were her kids. But sources are now saying that 43-year-old Georgina and 46-year-old Adrien are dating after being re-introduced by Helena Christensen. I say re-introduced, because Georgina originally met Adrien years ago through Harvey, when he and Adrien had a working relationship. But Adrien and Georgina really got to know each other through Helena in April.
As for what drew Adrien and Georgina together, The Sun’s source says they hooked up over booze and bikinis.
“Helena had invited them both to her swimwear launch in Puerto Rico, and they bonded over cocktails against a backdrop of various beautiful beaches. They stayed in touch when Georgina returned to London, and then arranged to go on a few low-key dates. Obviously it’s still quite a new thing, but Adrien is smitten and Georgina is the happiest she’s been in ages.”
The source adds that Georgina’s family, including her two kids – India (9) and Dashiell (6) – know about Adrien, and that everyone approves, because she’s happy.
We all know about Georgina’s last relationship. Adrien was with his girlfriend Lara Lieto for quite a while, but they have obviously split. He was most recently seen with an unknown woman in Ibiza in May. That would be one month after Adrien reportedly became smitten with Georgina.

Normally this would be where I suggest Georgina run, run for the hills, because I’m probably not too far off in suggesting Adrien might be the two-timing type. But it must be hard being Georgina and trying to find a date. I can imagine a lot of potential dates go full-blown ghost when they realize who her ex-husband is. Clearly not Adrien though! A few years ago, Adrien defended both Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. To be fair, catching a whiff of some random chick’s perfume on his scarf when he drops by for a booty call might be the trade-off for knowing he won’t also dry heave when he sits on any of the furniture that Harvey paid for.
