Hunter Biden seems to be having a hard time staying out of the news these days. Since the start of the 2020 campaign for Joe Biden, Republicans have found Hunter an easy target, something that continues into Biden’s second year of presidency. After a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter opened a Pandora’s box of woes, he now has a new cause for concern: his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle.
In April 2021, Hunter attempted to stem the laptop’s fallout with his own memoir, titled “Beautiful Things,” but it didn’t garner much attention or sympathy. Since then, we’ve learned more about Hunter, such as the fact that a Chinese businessman offered him an $ 800,000 diamond and helped a Romanian tycoon escape prison. So far, he’s weathered every storm, but might struggle with Buhle’s memories on the horizon.
Hunter Biden “convinced” Joe Biden to approve of the relationship with Beau’s widow, Hallie, otherwise it “would seem wrong”
Why were Hunter Biden’s memoir the # 1 bestseller in Amazon’s “Chinese Biographies”? Internet says “Bezos retirement gift”
So far, most of the claims have come from a questionable source at best, but we’ll finally be hearing directly from someone related to Hunter. Entitled “If We Break Up: A Memory of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing,” Buhle’s memoir will focus on the breakdown of their 24-year marriage. Here are five scandals to watch out for when the book releases in June.
# 1: The Hunter and Hallie Affair
Although Hunter touched on the matter in his memoir, we could see new details emerging from Buhle. We know she discovered Hunter and Hallie’s affair through an iPad, and it was the last straw for her. “I’m leaving you because you are having an affair and you have been emotionally abusive,” she wrote in a July 2016 email. Buhle could now delve into how she found out about the affair and what it was about by “emotionally violent” she meant.
# 2: How addicted was Hunter?
From his memories and his laptop leaks, we know Hunter was quite addicted to crack, but the extent of the addition has always remained a mystery. Apparently Buhle “tried for years to help him overcome his addiction” but failed. Likewise, Hunter confirmed that he was so addicted to alcohol that he drove a quart of vodka every day. It’s unclear whether crack was the only drug Hunter took during this time, which Buhle is likely to clarify.
# 3: Hunter’s love for prostitutes
This was an area Hunter glossed over in his memoir, but became a key part of his divorce battle. Hunter has confirmed he doesn’t remember a night with former stripper Lunden Roberts, who successfully sued for child support after revealing she got pregnant with her child in 2017. Scandal is one of the many weak spots in his life, but we might learn about others if Buhle knew more.
# 4: their secret divorce
Hunter and Buhle finalized their divorce in April 2017, but the exact details of the arrangement were never revealed. We know that Buhle claimed $ 20,000 a month in alimony and child support, but it was never confirmed whether the court would accept this amount. We also know that Buhle will be entitled to a portion of Hunter’s pension benefits, but it’s unclear how much. There are a lot of questions the divorce left us with, especially after the two started making public accusations, which we can now get answered.
# 5: Hunter’s influence in the White House
As Hunter and Buhle’s relationship crumbles towards the end of Joe Biden’s vice-presidency, Buhle seems like the perfect place to confirm just how much access Hunter had to the White House. Leaks from the laptop claimed Biden used his position to try to get then-Vice President Biden to meet with senior officials and foreign businessmen. It has also been alleged that Biden hosted some of Hunter’s contacts, which father and son of course downplayed. Maybe Buhle can shed some light on these issues?
