Shortly after filing for divorce, Huma Abedin invited disgraced former New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner back home, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

Abedin, a top aide to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, filed for divorce from Weiner earlier this month on the same day he pleaded guilty to a charge that he sent sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.

According to the Post, Abedin has since renewed the lease on the couple’s home and invited Weiner to move back home.

“He was supposed to move,” an unnamed source told the Post. “But they just signed for another year.”

Another unnamed source told the Post that Abedin “still hasn’t served him with the divorce papers.”

Weiner reportedly apologized in court May 19 to the unidentified teenage girl who received the explicit messages.

“I have a sickness,” Weiner said, “but I do not have an excuse.”

As part of his plea deal, Weiner agreed to surrender his iPhone and to register as a sex offender. His sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 8.

Weiner’s series of sexting scandals resulted in his resignation from Congress and derailed a run for mayor of New York City. One sexting scandal had an impact on the 2016 presidential election.

During the FBI’s investigation into allegations that Weiner sent sexually explicit messages and images to the underage girl, the bureau discovered emails relevant to their investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. The discovery of these emails prompted former FBI Director James Comey to re-open the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton email server.

After the election, Clinton said that she considers Comey’s decision a factor in her loss. Comey was later fired by President Donald Trump, which prompted allegations that the president was trying to impede the bureau’s investigation into Russia’s attempts to influence the presidential election.
