DISGRACED writer Jeffrey Toobin publicly apologized to his wife, Amy Bennett McIntosh, for allegedly exposing himself and masturbating during a work Zoom call.
McIntosh has long stood by her Harvard sweetheart, who returned to his job at CNN in June of 2021.
Who is Amy Bennett McIntosh?
Amy Bennett McIntosh is the wife of CNN star and best-selling New Yorker magazine writer Jeffrey Toobin, 60.
The 51-year-old mom is an American education sector consultant, according to Fact Files.
Highly educated McIntosh has a BA in Economics from Harvard University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
McIntosh’s specializes in education policy and practice in K-12 and Higher Education.
She previously served as an associate vice chancellor for academic strategy at the City University of New York.
In 2016, McTintosh was working at the Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development in Washington, District of Columbia, according to an online Federal profile on the former employee.
The New Yorker launched an investigation after he allegedly exposed himself during a Zoom call, according to Vice’s tech news website, Motherboard. He was later fired from the magazine.
Motherboard alleges that Toobin “accidentally flashed his penis” during a Zoom meeting in early October, 2020 with The New Yorker staffers and the radio station WNYC.
Motherboard called the meeting a “d*** incident.”
Toobin, who is also a chief legal analyst at CNN, has been granted time off from the network. He was reinstated in June of 2021.
In a statement he said: “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.”
Toobin has been a New Yorker writer for more than 20 years and joined CNN in 2002.
He is the author of several books, most recently True Crimes And Misdemeanors: The Investigation Of Donald Trump, published in August 2020.
Toobin also famously wrote about OJ Simpson in The Run Of His Life: The People v. O. J. Simpson.
When did Jeffrey Toobin and Amy Bennett McIntosh get married?
The couple celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary in May 2021.
In 1986, an announcement was made in The New York Times that McIntosh and Toobin were to marry.
It said the couple, who had both graduated from Harvard College – where they were editors of The Harvard Crimson – planned to marry in May 1986.
At that stage McIntosh was a director of marketing for the American Express Company in New York, while Toobin was editor of The Law Review.
His mother was a a correspondent for CBS News in New York, and his dad was director of news and public affairs for WNET/Thirteen, also in New York, at that time.
How many children do they have?
Amy Bennett McIntosh and Jeffrey Toobin have two children.
Toobin and McIntosh welcomed a baby daughter, Ellen, in 1991, before McIntosh gave birth to a son, Adam, a year later in 1992.
However, the shamed writer has another child with his estranged ex-mistress.
McIntosh has stood by her husband despite revelations that he had a love child with Yale-educated lawyer and writer Casey Greenfield, the daughter of CBS analyst Jeff Greenfield, reports the Daily News.
A source said that Greenfield became pregnant while having an affair with Toobin in 2008.
She later gave birth to a boy, Rory, in 2009 – with a DNA test proving that Toobin was his father.
After Greenfield sought financial help from the multi-millionaire for his son’s upbringing, a Manhattan Family Court judge ordered him to pay child support.
Toobin apparently asked to spend every other weekend with Rory.
A source told the Daily News in 2010: “His wife, Amy, comes with them to the park.”
