Welcome to the family!
Joe Biden‘s son Hunter Biden was secretly married in Los Angeles on May 16, TMZ reports. But it’s (thankfully) not to his sister-in-law!
The second oldest son of the former Vice President wed a South African woman named Melissa Cohen by an El Lay minister who runs an instant marriage company. The 49-year-old was previously in a relationship with the wife of his older brother Beau Biden, who passed away of brain cancer on May 30, 2015.
In early May 2019, reports said Hunter and Hallie Biden had gone their separate ways after two years together, so he definitely moves on quickly if this new marital report is true! The reports of their breakup came just a week after the official confirmation that Joe would be seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination.
In 2017, the presidential hopeful confirmed the relationship to Page Six between his son and daughter-in-law:
“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.”
Hunter, who separated from his estranged wife Kathleen Biden in October 2015, also commented on the relationship with his brother’s widow:
“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.”
We would definitely watch a Biden Family reality TV show!
However, the head-scratching relationship with his sister-in-law isn’t the only skeleton in Hunter’s closet. In 2014, he was discharged from the his part-time ensign position in the Navy reserve after testing positive for cocaine in a 2013 drug test. Yikes!
As we reported, just a week before the relationship between Hunter and Hallie was publicly confirmed, his estranged wife Kathleen filed a motion in court claiming her ex had “created financial concerns for the family by spending extravagantly on his own interests.” During their split, he allegedly spent $122,179 of their marital income in “less than two months” on “drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations.”
Wishing Hunter and his new bride a lifetime happiness!
