Huma Abedin has decided to separate from her husband Anthony Weiner, after the former congressman was reported to be involved in another sexting scandal.
“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband,” Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, said in a statement obtained by NBC News.
“Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life,” she continued.
“During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”
On Sunday evening, the New York Post published raunchy photos it obtained that Weiner allegedly sent to another woman.
One of the pictures showed the congressman's crotch, with the couple's son visible in bed next to him.
Weiner, who resigned from congress in 2011 after a sexting scandal, had his 2013 run for New York City mayor derailed by another lewd photo controversy.
