The president’s 51-year-old son began his secret relationship with Hallie Biden after his older brother, Beau, died of brain cancer in May 2015.
Hunter Biden says in his new book that he started an affair with his brother’s wife when I was at my lowest, she was at her neediest.
It shows on the book that Kathleen Biden, the mother of his three oldest children, found texts he exchanged with his mistress on an old iPad.
“The book admits that this was the final straw for Kathleen,” a publishing insider who is familiar with his 255 page memoir told The Sun.
“She’d tried for years to help him beat his addiction to crack cocaine and booze. But then she found out he was sleeping with his brother’s wife. She said he was a sicko.”
It was reported that Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books paid Hunter $2 million to imprint for “Beautiful Things,” which will be released April 6.
If he allows his life story to be filmed, He could earn millions and more, according to the Daily Mail.
Kathleen Biden learned about his affair with Hallie Biden, his brother, Beau’s widow when they were already on the rocks. Page Six reports that they’d been living apart since 2015. In the summer of 2016, Kathleen had had enough. According to emails that Daily Mail claims to have recently obtained, Kathleen wrote Hunter, “I’m leaving you because you are having an affair and you have been emotionally abusive.” Kathleen further (allegedly, folks) wrote, “You say you were surprised by my asking for a separation and needed time to process it. I was surprised when I found your bottles of Viagra and Cialis. I was surprised when I found airline purchases and jewelry purchases.” She filed for divorce in December, as per The New Yorker.
What he didn’t say about his ex-girlfriend is that the affair began when his brother was still alive, and was sick from cancer.
Notification of divorce through email might seem harsh. But, in a way, Kathleen was responding in kind. That’s according to what an insider who’s read Hunter Biden’s upcoming memoir told The Sun. In Beautiful Things, Biden gets brutally honest about his split with his first wife, revealing juicy details about when, where, and how.
After the funeral of his brother Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015, Hunter said he’d began spending a lot of time at the home of Hallie Biden, to help with the kids in Beau’s absence. He said he slept most nights on a Murphy bed in the den and took the kids to school in the morning.
But it wasn’t until Hunter finished a stint at Grace Grove rehab center in Sedona, Arizona that he and Hallie began a relationship, according to Hunter.
“Feeling physically and mentally purged, I phoned Hallie and asked if she would come to Arizona to pick me up. I wanted her to accompany me on the trip back,” Hunter wrote in “Beautiful Things.” ” I didn’t trust myself to make it home without backsliding — without taking a detour into the pit I fell into on my way there.”
“She flew out the next day. I was at my lowest, she was at her neediest, and we clung to each other with abandon. We talked at length about how much we had come to rely on each other, how our health and well-being seemed dependent on the love we’d grown to share,” he continued.
“There’s no question about the unseen force in the middle of it all: Beau,” Hunter wrote, adding that they’d come to think they could keep Beau alive by being together, “that by loving each other we somehow could love him back into existence.”
“By the time we returned to Delaware at the end of the week, we were no longer just two people bound by shared grief. We were a couple,” the president’s son said.
Hunter Biden has bees been kicked out of the military over his drug addiction.
He was added to the board of Burisma Holdings even though he was a druggie with no experience in Ukraine or in the gas and oil business for that matter.
That part of Biden’s story closely mirrors what he told The New Yorker in 2019. Sometime in 2016, Hunter started sleeping over at Hallie’s house in Delaware. “We were sharing a very specific grief,” he told the magazine, “I started to think of Hallie as the only person in my life who understood my loss.” The two cemented their relationship at a resort in Sedona, Arizona. But sometime in 2017 (before he moved to LA and did the artist thing), they’d split. “All we got was sh*** from everybody, all the time,” Hunter complained. Here’s a twist. If you believe Daily Mail, Biden may have had an affair with Hallie’s sister while he and Hallie were a couple. No word yet on whether he’ll divulge that in his memoir.
