Beau Biden, the oldest son of former VPOTUS Joe Biden, died of brain cancer at the young, young age of 46 in May 2015. Beau Biden left behind his wife of 13 years, Hallie Biden, and their two children. That’s Beau and Hallie on the left. Hallie didn’t really have to go far to find a piece to cry on. Hallie is now getting with her late husband’s younger brother Hunter Biden. That’s Hunter Biden on the right. Hunter Biden and his wife Kathleen Biden separated in October 2015. Hunter and Kathleen have three daughters. Another fun fact: Beau and Hallie’s son is also named Hunter. This is all-caps, bold-faced, big-fonted, red-colored MESSY.
Page Six first reported that Hallie kept it in the family by getting with Hunter and they are now “officially” a couple. Since Joe Biden is a roll-with-it, key-party-attending-back-in-his-day good ole’ son of a gun, he’s cool with it and tells Page Six that Hunter and Hallie have his blessing. Joe and his wife Dr. Jill Biden gave Page Six this thumbs-up statement about Hunter and Hallie:
“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.”
Uncle Daddy Hunter released his own statement saying that he is glad he found Auntie Step Mommy Hallie, because they have helped each other through the sadness:
“Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time, and that’s been obvious to the people who love us most. We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”
Hunter is somewhat the black sheep of the Biden family. Dude was kicked out of the Navy after he tested positive for coke, and his email came up in the Ashley Madison hack. Hunter denied ever having an account.
TMZ also popped in with more info about Hunter and Kathleen’s divorce. In the divorce papers that Kathleen filed in December, she says that they officially ended it in October 2015, but in July 2015, she kicked him out of the house “due to his conduct the night before.” The docs don’t explain what that mystery conduct was, but Kathleen does say that they had previously agreed that if he “engaged in the conduct in question,” he must take his ass out of the house. Kathleen also added this:
“His recent conduct creates situations that are unsafe or traumatic for the parties’ children and his judgment, is frequently impaired.”
And she accused Hunter of lavishly spending money on himself and his “own pursuits.”
This is some soap opera meets Levirate marriage shit. Based on what Kathleen said in the divorce papers, one may not be too far off in guessing that she’s accusing Hunter of boozing hard and/or being on the bad shit. I don’t know if this mystery “conduct” involves Hallie or not.
As for Hallie, the heart wants what the heart wants and sometimes the heart wants to be pressed against the bad boy chest of your husband’s brother. (Right, Duchess Kate?!!!) Hallie lost a husband way too soon and Hunter lost a brother and we all grieve differently, so it’s not that weird to me that they’ve found love amongst the sad. It’s not like Hallie asks Hunter to wear her husband’s clothes and calls his name out while doing it. Don’t tell me if that’s the case, Page Six.
But because of Hunter’s divorce, this is probably going to get a lot messier, and if it does, here’s a classic industrial-strength palate cleanser that you may need to use in the future:
