Despite recent reports of the pending divorce of Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, the New York Post reported Tuesday that she has invited him to come home again.
Abedin filed for divorce earlier in May, the same day Weiner, a Democratic ex-congressman, pleaded guilty to sexting with a 15-year-old girl and was ordered to register as a sex offender as part of a plea deal with the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Sources revealed that Abedin has since renewed the lease on their luxury Union Square duplex and invited Weiner back home.
According to a Corcoran real estate listing, the upscale three-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot home at 1 Irving Place features an “expansive, panoramic view of Union Square Park and the midtown skyline.”
A source told the post that Weiner was due to move out Tuesday, and had been staying with his mother in Park Slope—sleeping on her couch.
“He was supposed to move,” the building source said. “But they just signed for another year.”
Another source claimed that, “She still hasn’t served him with the divorce papers.”
Weiner was seen on Tuesday morning leaving the duplex with his and Abedin’s 5-year-old son. A friend of the couple reported that Weiner has been the child’s primary caretaker, especially while Abedin worked on Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign.
“Huma is worried about her son,” the friend said. “That’s her priority, and Anthony plays a very strong role in raising him.”
Brokers signed a strict nondisclosure agreement and will not discuss the newly-signed lease, or disclose whether Abedin is on the $11,900-a-month lease alone or with Weiner, who is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 8.
“We are really worried about this one,” a broker said. “This is a very sensitive rental.”
