Weiner was in the Hamptons with wife, top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, over the weekend and told her Sunday that the lewd images were about to be published in the New York Post.

He then returned to their Manhattan apartment, leaving her with the mortifying task of notifying Clinton about her latest public humiliation.

On Monday, following the release of the new Weiner images — including one with the couples young son in bed — Abedin, 41, announced the couple were going to separate.

In a statement she said: "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband."

Abedin asked for privacy during the couple's separation.

Weiner, 51, allegedly sent an unidentified woman a lewd photo as his 4-year-old son slept beside him.

On Tuesday, The Post published his texts to the woman. He told her in 2015 that he had a "busted marriage." The woman asked him whether he'd move to Washington if Clinton was elected president.

He responded: "I doubt I am under any circumstances."

Weiner has been through this at least twice before. In 2011, the former U.S. Congressman from New York accidentally tweeted a shirtless picture to his followers, leading to his resignation.
