Hunter Biden’s ex wife, Kathleen Buhle, recently sat down with People Magazine where she spilled the beans about their marriage just ahead of the release of a tell-all memoir that is set to be released very soon titled, “If We Break.”
According to the People magazine report, Buhle is “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.”
“Buhle, a 53-year-old nonprofit development executive, shares what her publisher calls a ‘story of resilience and self-discovery’ in her forthcoming book, If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing,” the magazine piece continued.
The book is due to be released on June 14 of this year and will be the first public comments that have been made by Biden’s former spouse concerning their divorce and its impact, though some of the details of the couple’s split did play out in courtroom battles.
The two got married back in 1993 and got divorced after 24 years of marriage. They have three daughters: Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy.
What’s also interesting about the timing of the book’s release is that it will be just a few months before the 2022 midterms, which many pundits and pollsters have predicted will be incredibly difficult for Democrats to win due to thin majorities in both houses of Congress.
“When my marriage ended, I felt like I’d lost my sense of who I was,” Buhle said during the interview with People. “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.”
People then 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 went on to assert.
The publisher describes the book as being 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 stated 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 added.
Buhle has done a good job of staying out of the public eye in recent years, unlike her former husband, Hunter, who has been involved in a parade of controversies.
The younger son of President Joe Biden has been outed as being the father of a kid with a stripper, has become a highly controversial artist, and also had a fling with his late brother’s widow.
In other words, the dude is a real piece of work.
