Harvey Weinstein has claimed he’s too broke to pay his ex-wife child support, according a newly released court ruling obtained by Page Six.

The outlet reports that the disgraced Hollywood producer told his first wife, Eve Chilton, he would not be able to pay child support for two of their daughters — aged 15 and 19 — for “at least one year,” per a Jan. 2 court ruling that was released on Friday.

However, the ruling — which was released by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz — denied Chilton’s demand that Weinstein pay her $5 million, which she claimed the producer owed her from their 2004 divorce settlement.

In the decision, Chilton claimed she was owed the money because there was “‘real and present danger’ [Weinstein] would default on his financial obligations to her.” She went on to claim “she was informed [Weinstein] would not be able to pay his child support for at least one year.”

A representative for Weinstein tells PEOPLE that “Harvey has always paid his child support and will continue to honor his obligations. And the court agreed — hence the denial of her request.”

Weinstein and Chilton, the producer’s former assistant, divorced in 2004 after seven years of marriage and three children, ages 22, 19 and 15. Their divorce settlement allegedly required Weinstein to pay a total of $60 million in support, of which Chilton claims $5 million is outstanding.

Harvey Weinstein Sued for Alleged Spying in Paz de la Huerta Rape Case

  Harvey Weinstein Sued for Alleged Spying in Paz de la Huerta Rape Case Harvey Weinstein was sued on Friday for allegedly using a New York attorney to spy on actress Paz de la Huerta, who has accused the disgraced producer of raping her. The complaint accuses attorney Michael F. Rubin of seeking to gain information from de la Huerta last fall, while also discouraging her from pursuing criminal charges against Weinstein.

Weinstein also has two children — ages 7 and 4 — with Georgina Chapman.

According to the ruling, the Supreme Court Justice ultimately denied Chilton’s request on the grounds that Chilton failed to show “a consistent pattern” of missed payments by Weinstein, which would be necessary in order to legally force the disgraced producer to prepay the child support.

A source close to the family previously told PEOPLE that “Mr. Weinstein has never missed a payment and has paid millions dollars to support his children and ex-wife.”

“About four years ago, their eldest daughter emancipated herself from her mother’s care and since liberation remains extremely close with her father and she does not speak to her mother. Mr. Weinstein has always taken care of her and will continue to do so- for all of his children,” the source continued.

Chapman will also get primary custody of their two children, but she and Weinstein are still working out the details of the division of their marital assets.

While a settlement has been reached, Chapman, 41, and Weinstein, 65, have not filed in court.

The Oscar-winning producer has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 60 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles in October.

A spokesperson for Weinstein previously told PEOPLE in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”

Hollywood producers announce new sexual harassment guidelines .
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein controversy and the #MeToo movement, the Producers Guild of American announced extensive new rules Friday to clamp down on sexual harassment in Hollywood. The rules are the result of a task force created in October to safeguard against harassment on and off the set. “Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the ranks of the Producers Guild membership,” said presidents Gary Lucchesi and Lori McCreary in a statement. “… it is our obligation to change our culture and eradicate this abuse.” The guidelines first go about describing what is sexual harassment in Hollywood production terms (examples include quid pro quo offers of jobs in exchange for sex and creating hostile work environments with unwanted advances, jokes, or derogatory comments). Then the PGA listed new recommendations for productions: Follow federal and state harassment laws, provide in-person sexual harassment training on all productions, offer reporting procedures for victims of harassment, listen to reports of harassment “with attention and empathy,” move quickly to address the concerns, and keep an eye out for any possible retaliation against an accuser. In laying out a protocol for victims and witnesses, first and foremost the PGA urges that anybody who feels they are the victim of a crime to report it to authorities immediately.
