The Clinton campaign manager released a statement on Monday morning just hours after the New York Post reported that Weiner had been sending lewd texts to another woman behind her back, marking the third time he had been caught in the act in the past five years.
Making matters worse, one of the pictures was of Weiner showcasing his manhood in a pair of boxer briefs while the couple's four-year-old son Jordan lay asleep next to him in bed.
'After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband,' said Abedin in a statement.
'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. '
After releasing the statement, she didn't attend any of Hillary's fundraising events in the Hamptons.
A source close to the family told CNN Abedin is 'furious and sickened' by the picture of Weiner in his underwear lying next to her son.
Weiner has kept quiet since the scandal broke on Sunday night, and on Monday morning deleted his twitter account.
In other texts allegedly sent to the unnamed woman, a brunette divorcee, Weiner spoke about being 'horny as f***' and sent a variety of emojis that were sexual in nature.
He also reportedly admitted to masturbating while thinking about the woman in a text, allegedly calling her a 'fantasy chick.'
The most damning of the snaps though is Weiner laying in bed wearing nothing but his boxer briefs while his five-year-old son with Abedin, Jordan, sleeps next to him.
