Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter is used to being in headlines for a number of scandals including dating his brother’s widow.
He ended up divorcing with his more than 20 years of wife, Kathleen Biden, in 2017 whilst they claimed they were already separated in 2015. They have three children Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy. Biden’s ex-wife claimed him of blowing money over drugs and strip clubs and the marriage became over due to his failure to stay sober.
Hunter, an attorney, who is used to facing criticism for a history of drug and alcohol problems also got him discharged from the U.S. Navy Reserve for cocaine use and failing the drug test in 2014 for which he was also sent to rehab.
The very same year Hunter separated with his ex-wife, 2015, his older brother Beau Biden died of brain cancer at the age of 46. The incident left the family devastated. The following year the Biden family acknowledged Hunter was dating Hallie Biden, Beau’s widow and mother of Hunter’s niece and nephew. He says he became close with Hallie after a 2016 trip with her to the Hamptons and began spending most nights at her house while “sharing very specific grief” over Beau’s 2015 death.
Messy relationships do not end here. Whilst Hunter was in a relationship with Hallie Biden a DNA test filed in court showed with “scientific certainty” that he is the father of a child with Lunden Alexis Roberts who was born in August 2018. Nearly 2 years of dating Hunter and Hallie broke up in April.
In May, Roberts filed a paternity suit, the very same month he married Melissa Cohen, 33 just after six days of dating and claimed that he never had an affair with Roberts.
He also faced a scandal in 2015 when his email address appeared on a list of accounts hacked from Ashley Madison, the dating website for extramarital affairs, though he claimed it was “set up by someone else without my knowledge.”
