Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner Are Separating

Posted: Aug 29, 2016 11:35 AM

Clinton aide Huma Abedin announced that she will be separating from former Congressman Anthony Weiner after the New York Post released a new set of sexting pictures. One picture sent to a "busty brunette" featured Weiner lying in bed in his underwear next to his toddler-aged son.

Abedin and Weiner were married in 2010 by a ceremony officiated by former President Bill Clinton. Weiner was forced to resign from Congress in 2011 after he accidentally tweeted a picture of his genitals. In 2013, it was revealed that Weiner had continued his sexcapades under the name "Carlos Danger."

In a statement, Abedin expressed a wish for privacy during this time.
