The New Yorker magazine has suspended its longtime writer Jeffrey Toobin after he reportedly exposed himself and masturbated during a work Zoom call. The writer, 60, who has written for the New Yorker for over 25 years, is said to have exposed himself while on a video call with staffers from the magazine and employees from New York public radio station WNYC. As per reports, he is on a leave of absence from CNN for whom he works at the position of a legal analyst. According to a CNN statement obtained by The Washington Post, "Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.” The incident reportedly took place last week, although the exact day has not been determined.
 
Previously we reported that Toobin said in a press statement, “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers. I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”

As the writer had mentioned about his wife in his apology, it brings to mind the writer's personal life, marriage and reported extramarital affair that made headlines in 2010.

Coming to his personal life, Toobin married Amy Bennett McIntosh, his fellow at Harvard in 1986. He met Amy in college while they worked at the Harvard Crimson. Amy is the daughter of Robert C McIntosh of Cincinnati and Douglas D. Drysdale of Washington as reported by the New York Times. The site reported in 1986, at the time of their marriage that Amy was a director of marketing for the American Express Company. She holds an MBA degree from Harvard Business School and has held executive positions in her career like at a telecommunications MNC Verizon Communications and restaurant company Zagat Survey. The married couple has two children - a daughter and a son. 

However, many media reports indicate that Toobin had a long time off and on an extramarital affair with attorney Casey Greenfield who is the daughter of a television journalist and author Jeff Greenfield. The Yale-educated lawyer, Casey, reportedly fell for Toobin when she was in her 20s and when Toobin was already wed to Amy. Casey started her own firm, Casey Greenfield PC, in 2015 and her Twitter account bio reads "matrimonial and family lawyer". "Jeff and Casey saw each other off and on over the years," said one source as reported in Daily News. "She was married to someone else for two years. After her divorce, she started seeing Jeff again. He said he was going to leave his wife for her. But, by then, Casey had begun to distrust him. She suspected he had several other mistresses."

Daily News further reported how Casey and Toobin even had a child together. The site reports that in 2008 when Casey became pregnant with his child and told Toobin the news, he offered her "money if she'd have an abortion". Further, the site reported that Toobin allegedly offered to pay Casey for her to have another child later via a sperm donor. "When Casey wouldn't have an abortion, Jeff told her she was going to regret it, that she shouldn't expect any help from him," claims another source as reported in Daily News.
 
In 2012, New York Times reported that when Casey first informed Toobin of her pregnancy, “he questioned the paternity, balked at submitting to a test and vowed to take no responsibility for a baby he wasn’t sure was his.” Both hired lawyers. Casey said as reported in New York Times, “The one time you don’t want to get pregnant is when you’re single and the other person is married and you’re working as a first-year junior associate at a law firm in a hard-core phase of trying to prove yourself to them.”

Casey underwent a risky DNA test while pregnant as reported by Daily News in 2010. While earlier reluctant, Toobin finally cooperated with a DNA test that proved he was Rory's dad, the son he had with Casey. The site reported that a Manhattan Family Court judge ordered Toobin to pay child support. However, when he refused to pay the full amount, Casey’s lawyer threatened to notify his employers and garnish his wages, finally leading to Toobin paying the amount.
