The driver for Harvey Weinstein’s estranged fashion designer wife was arrested in Manhattan early Thursday for allegedly busting up a paparazzo’s camera, police sources told The Post.
Chauffeur Cristovoa Proenca, 44, was charged with criminal mischief for allegedly getting handsy with a lensman trying to photograph Georgina Chapman and her two children on West 11th Street in the West Village, the sources said.
Proenca allegedly grabbed the camera of snapper Jason Winslow, 42, causing damage to the device, sources said.
Chapman — who founded the designer label Marchesa — and Weinstein are separated; she recently claimed she had no idea that her husband was an alleged serial sex harasser and assaulter of women.
Weinstein is due to turn himself in Friday at Manhattan Supreme Court on sex assault charges.
