Huma Abedin separates from Anthony Weiner

Disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner made headlines late Sunday after a new report emerged showing him sexting with a woman other than his wife yet again, and now a photo of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is creating new buzz.

A candid snap of the 2016 contender leaving a Sunday evening fundraiser has people talking and some speculating that she was looking at news of the former representative's scandalous messages.

Human Abedin, the wife of the former representative, is one of Clinton's top aides and has served the 2016 presidential nominee candidate in various capacities for the last 20 years.

The latest sexting photo to spark controversy appears to show Weiner in his underwear while laying next to his son in bed.

Abedin has announced she is separating from Weiner shortly after the story gained steam on Monday morning, asking for privacy.

Weiner's sexting habits first became public in 2011 just a year into their marriage when an explicit photo briefly posted to his Twitter account raises eyebrows. Weiner initially denied that he was depicted in the image, instead claiming his account was hacked. Within a week, new sexually explicit images sent to other women emerged. After publicly denying the initial reports, Weiner ultimately admitted they were true and apologized publicly. He said at the time he would seek treatment "to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person."

He resigned from Congress a few days later with his wife, who was then an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at his side.

The story made headlines again in 2013 during his campaign for mayor of New York City when new sexually-explicit messages emerged after Weiner had denied that the sexting habits outside of marriage had continued.
