The announcement comes in the wake of the latest allegations of the former congressman sending lewd messages to a woman online which were revealed by The New York Post last night.
“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy,” Abedin said in a statement released today.
Abedin, who is one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, married Weiner in 2010 when he was a Democratic congressman representing a district in Queens, New York. Former President Bill Clinton officiated at their wedding.
