Huma Abedin And Anthony Weiner's Latest Divorce Details

An attorney for Huma Abedin filed paperwork Wednesday in court signed by her and Anthony Weiner agreeing to withdraw their divorce suit, the New York Post reported.

Abedin, a longtime senior aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, filed for divorce on May 19, 2017 - the same day Weiner pleaded guilty to sending explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.

Ms Abedin announced she was separating from her husband a month before the FBI began investigating Weiner in 2016 when it was reported he asked a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina to undress on camera.

Abedin listed the case as "contested", meaning there was dispute between the couple, who were both scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday afternoon.

The former NY congressman is serving a almost two-year federal prison sentence following his conviction on charges that stemmed from sexting with a 15-year-old girl.

The judge confirmed from the bench that the case had been discontinued. In 2013, he attempted a political comeback and made a run for mayor of New York City, only for more sexting allegations to emerge and end his campaign.

In September, 53-year-old Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in jail.
