Abedin became ensnared in the Clinton email probe.

Abedin finally filed for the split last May just hours after Weiner pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor. According to the report, Abedin had originally been schedule to appear for a compliance conference in regard to the divorce, which was listed as contested.

The disgraced pol is serving almost two years of hard time in a MA federal lockup.

The judge declared the case to be "discontinued".

Charles Miller, Abedin's attorney, in a statement, said: "In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have chose to attempt to reach a settlement swiftly and privately".

Once a rising Democratic star, he tried to salvage his political career by running for mayor of NY in 2013 but his campaign ended amid reports of further graphic online messages.

The following day, Abedin announced she was separating from her husband.

"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband".

The couple has a 6-year-old son. Night Shyamalan toxic pollutant is in the air: Weiner - who is in prison serving a 21-month sentence for sending sexually explicit texts to a minor - and Abedin have withdrawn their pending divorce claim.
