A Biden family associate confirms Hunter and Kathleen Biden are no longer together and that Hunter is indeed involved in a romantic relationship with his sister-in-law.
The couple separated in October 2015 and Kathleen made the allegations in a filing on February 23, just one week before it was revealed that Hunter was dating Hallie Biden, the widow of his later brother Beau.
After "Page Six" revealed that Hunter Biden, the 47-year-old son of former vice-president Joe Biden, was dating his brother Beau's widow, details about Hunter's divorce proceedings with his wife Kathleen began to emerge.
Hunter is also countering Kathleen's efforts to receive a $20,000 per month allowance.
Kathleen alleges in the court documents that those interests include "drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations". Kathleen made shocking allegations that he was "dissipating hundreds of thousands of dollars of marital funds" by "spending extravagantly on his own interests".
On Wednesday, "Page Six" broke the news of Hunter's relationship with Hallie, who had been married to his brother Beau (the former attorney general of Delaware) until he passed away in May 2015.
Kathleen cited "irreconcilable differences" when she filed for divorce in December 2016 and is seeking sole custody of the couple's 16-year-old daughter, the youngest of their three children.
According to Page Six, the new couple have the blessing of Biden and his wife Dr Jill Biden. "They have mine and Jill's full and complete support and we are happy for them", he said, according to Page Six.
Kathleen's cash grab comes after Hunter allegedly blew through $US122,000 in just two months, her papers say.
As we reported, Kathleen kicked Hunter out of the family house after she claims he repeated conduct that endangered their kids.
"Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a hard time, and that's been obvious to the people who love us most". "Hunter loves and admires Kathleen as a person, a mother, and a friend".
Hunter Biden was discharged from the Navy Reserve in 2014 after he tested positive for cocaine.
