الجواب وبالله التوفيق

As per the situation described in your question, your Nikah has been invalidated with this man and due to the issuance of three divorces absolute separation has taken place. After the issuance of divorce, the period of ‘iddah was mandatory upon you which was equivalent to the length of three menstrual cycles (or 3 months). If you did not abide by the rules of ‘iddah during the above mentioned period then repentance is required upon this negligence.

Since now your period of ‘iddah has already completed, it is permissible from a Shar‘ai standpoint for you to perform Nikah with any man other than your husband.

As far as the situation of your husband is concerned, he is responsible for his own actions. However, if there is a possibility to stop him from this sin and haram actions, one should take initiative in doing so.
