Kathleen Buhle, Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, has dished on their marriage in a brand new tell-all memoir called, “If We Break.”
Buhle “is opening up for the first time about the unraveling of her marriage to Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, which ended in 2017 amid the younger Biden’s then-secret struggles with addiction,” the Daily Mail reported.
The book details Buhle’s side of the story regarding her divorce from Hunter Biden and how their split played out in court.
The couple married in 1993 and split after around 24 years of marriage. They share three daughters: Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy.
“When my marriage ended, I felt like I’d lost my sense of who I was,” she said. “Anyone who has seen addiction ruin a relationship, or been through infidelity and divorce, can tell you how devastating it feels. But what I also realized through those crushing experiences is that I needed to find a way to stand on my own.”
The report adds:
In February 2017, Buhle alleged in a legal filing that her estranged ex had spent money on drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, and strip clubs.
Buhle’s book doesn’t shy away from those previous disclosures; instead, it will shine a light on the “heavy toll” addiction can take on relationships, according to the book’s publisher.
“Writing this book has been incredibly healing for me… and my hope is it 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. In the end, divorce allowed me to find my strength,” Buhle asserted.
The publisher describes the book as a “chronicle of radical honesty.”
“For decades, Kathleen Buhle chose to play the role of the good wife, beginning when, as a naïve young woman from a working-class family on the South Side of Chicago, she met the dashing son of a senator at the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Oregon,” the publisher noted in a release.
“When Hunter’s drinking evolved into dependency, she was forced to learn how rapidly and irrevocably a marriage can fall apart under the merciless power of addiction,” the release notes further.
While Buhle has largely remained out of the limelight, in recent years Hunter Biden has remained squarely in it.
He’s been outed as having fathered a child with a stripper, become a highly controversial painter, and had a romantic relationship with his late brother’s widow, the latter of which he explained in his own recent memoir.
The Daily Mail adds:
Hunter Biden is trying to lower his child support payments for his four-year-old love child with Lunden Roberts, claiming he’s having financial difficulties.
According to documents obtained by DailyMail.com, the president’s son filed a motion to adjust child support Monday, citing “a substantial material change” in his “financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income.”
Hunter fathered four-year-old Navy Joan in 2018 while on a drug-fueled bender and has never met the young girl who lives with her mother Lunden Roberts, 31, in Arkansas.
In his memoir, Hunter claimed he went on so many “rampages” in the wake of his 2017 divorce from Buhle that he couldn’t recall his conquests.
“It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine – I had no recollection of our encounter,” he claimed, playing up that he’s now a “recovering drug addict.”
“That’s how little connection I had with anyone,” he claimed in the book.
