Although this was the first time they officially met, Weiner had seen Abedin several times before. It’s not like she’s this lightweight beautiful person in fancy outfits.“I started seeing her around, and I was like, ‘Wow, who is that? She’s like this intriguing, fascinating creature.” NEW YORK, NY – MAY 02: Anthony Weiner (L)and Huma Abedin attend the “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology” Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2, 2016 in New York City.He remained in the race until the end, placing fifth in the Democratic primary.Following a report from the Daily Mail in September 2016, Weiner was investigated by the FBI for sexting with a 15-year-old girl.(For what it’s worth, Abedin was not in attendance.)To a degree, it’s none of our freaking business if the two are getting back together or not.Marriage is a complicated institution, and if the two have reached a mutual understanding about their extramarital activities, –style, that is just fine.
Just a month before, Abedin had finally broken up with Weiner when it came to light that he had continued to sext with another woman.Abedin, a longtime Hillary Clinton aide, was stonefaced and covered her eyes with large sunglasses.Looking chic as usual, she wore a long grey coat and point flats.The former New York Congressman who resigned in disgrace and subsequently lost a mayoral race was until last year married to Huma Abedin, a staffer of Hillary Clinton.The two separated in August 2016, and after reports that they might be trying to make things work again, The New York Daily News reported this week that Abedin has officially filed for divorce.
