THE CNN pundit fired for allegedly masturbating on Zoom reportedly offered to pay for a lover’s abortion and visited a swingers' club with Roger Stone.
Details of Jeffrey Toobin's past have circulated the internet after he was suspended for "accidentally flashing his penis during a Zoom call with colleagues".
Toobin was suspended by the New Yorker after showing his man part during a virtual meeting with the magazine and WNYC radio, sources revealed to VICE.
Despite the anti-Trump pundit being married to his former Harvard classmate Amy McIntosh since 1986 and having two daughters with her – he reportedly cheated on his wife with lawyer Casey Greenfield.
The lawyer allegedly had a secret affair with the best-selling author for nearly a decade – and their rumored relationship produced a love child in 2008.
Greenfield made headlines in 2009 after reports claimed she was pregnant – and Toobin, a legal analyst for CNN, was the baby daddy.
Sources told the Daily News back in 2010 that their alleged affair began when the young lawyer fell for Toobin, now 60, when she was in her 20s.
Their secret relationship reportedly lasted nearly a decade.
When Greenfield became pregnant with his child in 2008, Toobin allegedly offered her "money if she'd have an abortion," the Daily News reported.
He allegedly offered to pay for her to have another child later on through a sperm donor, according to the Daily News.
Greenfield gave birth to her child with Toobin, a son named Rory, in 2009 and underwent a risky DNA test while pregnant, the Daily News reported in 2010.
Although he was initially reluctant, the writer cooperated with a test that proved he was Rory's father.
A Manhattan Family Court judge ordered Toobin to pay child support, according to the newspaper.
But when he refused to cough up the full amount, Greenfield's lawyer threatened to tell his employers and garnish his way, prompting Toobin to pay up.
About a year before Toobin's son Rory was born, Toobin admitted in an article that he had been to a popular swingers' club in Miami, known as Miami Velvet.
He had visited the swinger’s club to interview Roger Stone.
'"A flat-screen television on the wall plays porn videos, and many clubgoers disappear into locker rooms and emerge wearing towels," Toobin wrote.
"From there, some of them go into a lounge, a Jacuzzi room, or one of about half a dozen private rooms to have sex — with their dates or with new acquaintances."
On Monday evening, VICE updated its shocking Toobin story with the editors note: “This piece has been updated with more detail about the call.
"The headline has been updated to reflect that Toobin was masturbating.”
The headline was updated to, “New Yorker Suspends Jeffrey Toobin for Masturbating on Zoom Call.”
VICE spoke with two anonymous people who were on the call which was an election simulation featuring the New Yorker’s most prolific journalists, with Toobin reportedly playing the courts.
Both sources said they saw Toobin “jerking off.”
The simulation included a strategy session with a break of about 10 minutes.
"At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call," the VICE report states.
"Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued."
Toobin has since apologized and told the news outlet: "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
Toobin added: "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."
The disgraced journalist has not posted to Twitter for approximately one week and his Conde Nast email has been disabled, according to the report.
“Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter," Natalie Raabe, a spokesperson for the New Yorker, said.
Toobin has worked as staff writer for the New Yorker for more than 25 years.
He also worked as a senior legal analyst for CNN for 18 years.
A CNN statement revealed: "Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted."
According to the New Yorker, Toobin "is known for his penetrating pieces on groundbreaking legal matters and consequential political figures."
Toobin has written a total of nine books.
Toobin graduated from Harvard Law and once served on the associate counsel in the Department of Justice.
Meanwhile, OJ Simpson took to Twitter on Tuesday to compare the disgraced journalist to Pee-wee Herman.
