Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Kathleen Biden are reportedly putting an end to their tumultuous marriage. The separated duo filed a consent motion in Washington D.C on Wednesday, March 8, to divorce in an honorable, polite and family-focused manner.”
According to US Weekly, the motion has established that the involved parties have prioritized benefits for their children and families. The couple has decided to call it quits amicably and privately, keeping it under the wraps for the sake of family discretion.
The decision was put forward by Kathleen, who accused her lawyer husband of infidelity and spending a ludicrous amount of money on drugs, alcohol and nefarious doings, which involved strip clubs and womanizing. Hunter was accused of lavish lifestyle as he spent the money on personal interests, crippling his family financially, leaving behind no money for wife and three daughters.
The divorce document stated that Hunter and Kathleen “separated on or about October 2015, due to irreconcilable differences concerning Mr. Biden’s conduct, including drug use and infidelity.” Hunter’s attorney Sarah Mancinelli requested for the privacy of the family and established that he admires Kathleen as a mother and a wife.
Their marriage was subjected to instability after Hunter was caught romantically involved with his brother’s widow Hallie Biden. Beau Biden, Hunters’ brother, died in May 2015 at the age of 46 after a fatal battle with brain cancer.
While talking to New York Post’s Page Six, he said that he feels lucky to have found immense love and support, along with his wife, at this hour of family crisis. “We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”
Hunter and Kathleen currently have three daughters. Jim Biden said that the news of their family crisis hasn’t disturbed their family dynamics.
