In a forthcoming memoir by Kathleen Buhle, Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, she goes deep on the problems that led him into the arms of his sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, and exposes his drug problems during their marriage.
In the memoir, Buhle explains that a marriage counselor encouraged Hunter to spend time with Hallie to grieve together after Beau Biden died suddenly from brain cancer in 2015. In the memoir, “If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing,” Buhle said that Hunter began “to set up the Beau Biden Foundation with Hallie [Biden] and his parents.”
Buhle also said, “But he started spending most of his time at Hallie’s house. Our therapist told me Hunter needed to be up there, helping Hallie.” Urging Hunter to stay home with his family, Hallie said, “‘But what about his sobriety?’ I asked her. ‘He needs routine. He needs to be home with us.’”
The lack of routine and the time away from home seemed to lead Hunter to use drugs again because the following summer Hallie found a crack pipe in Hunter’s ashtray and she kicked him out of the home because of his drug use and he admitted to cheating on her with prostitutes while overseas engaging in shady business dealings.
Even more damaging, Hunter’s middle daughter found the text messages between him and Hallie on his phone. Buhle said she got “the kind of call that tightens every parent’s chest” when she got the phone call from her middle daughter in November 2016. She explained this to her family therapist, identified as “Debbie.”
Debbie broke the news to Kathleen and calmly told her “Kathleen, Hunter’s having an affair with Hallie.”
President Joe Biden then made a statement to Page Six, saying, “We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
Buhle apparently didn’t have much to do with the couple’s finances and said that even if the federal government called her for she “couldn’t be of any help.” She said, “I kept my head so deeply buried in the sand on our finances.”
Buhle has said that she hopes the memoir “will be meaningful to those who have been through addiction or divorce, and especially to women who have felt like their entire identity was tied to their spouse.”
