Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin to settle divorce privately

Former aide to Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, and her now jailed husband, Anthony Weiner, have withdrawn their divorce case from a NY court.

"In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have made a decision to finalize their divorce swiftly and privately", Charles Miller, an attorney for Abedin, said in a statement.

Abedin was supposed to appear in court this afternoon for a compliance conference in the divorce case but her attorney handed in paperwork from both her and Weiner agreeing to end the case, The 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. Vanity Fair reports the judge had earlier denied a request from an Abedin attorney "to keep these proceedings secret to the extent your honor will allow". They have a 6-year-old son.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz confirmed in court that the case had been withdrawn.

In September, Weiner was sentenced to almost two years in federal prison. The couple will likely continue divorce proceedings through mediation.
