Huma Abedin Has Filed For Divorce From Anthony Weiner

Former Hillary Clinton staffer Huma Abedin has filed for divorce from her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), shortly after his guilty plea for sending obscene material to a minor. Weiner faces between 21 and 27 months in prison as part of his plea deal.

Abedin and Weiner were married on July 10, 2010, in a ceremony officiated by former President Bill Clinton. The two separated on August 29, 2016, after it was revealed that Weiner had sent sexually explicit photos of himself to a "busty brunette." His young son was pictured in some of the pictures.

In 2011, Weiner resigned from Congress after accidentally tweeting a sexually explicit photograph.

Per the New York Post, the divorce filing is uncontested, meaning there will not be a custody battle for their son. Abedin has reportedly requested that the divorce be sealed.
