The Hill reports that Kathleen Buhle, the ex-wife of Hunter Biden, is about to release a tell-all book about her time married to the president’s son.
The book, titled If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing, is being billed as a tale of Buhle’s journey to find a “renewed sense of identity, purpose, and joy after the devastating collapse of her marriage.”
“I’ve been so desperate”
According to Fox News, Buhle and Hunter Biden were married for over 20 years — from 1993 to 2017 — and have three daughters together.
In court documents from their divorce, Buhle alleged that Biden squandered their money on things like drugs, alcohol, and strip clubs.
Biden’s struggles with addiction have been well documented, with Biden himself revealing just how bad things were in a recent memoir. “I’ve bought crack cocaine on the streets of Washington, D.C., and cooked up my own inside a hotel bungalow in Los Angeles. I’ve been so desperate for a drink that I couldn’t make the one-block walk between a liquor store and my apartment without uncapping the bottle to take a swig,” the president’s son recalls in Beautiful Things, published last spring, according to The New York Times.
During his marriage to Buhle, however, it was all kept under wraps.
Things went from bad to worse for the couple just before their divorce was finalized, when Hunter Biden revealed he was romantically involved with Hallie Biden, the widow of his late brother, as The Hill reported.
“Lost my sense of who I was”
Buhle’s book is said to in large part focus on the impacts that drug addiction can have on a relationship.
“When my marriage ended, I felt like I’d lost my sense of who I was,” Buhle said in an interview with People Magazine, according to Fox.
“Anyone who has seen addiction ruin a relationship, or been through infidelity and divorce, can tell you how devastating it feels,” she added. “But what I also realized through those crushing experiences is that I needed to find a way to stand on my own.”
According to Buhle, the writing process was “incredibly healing” for her. “And my hope is it will be meaningful to those who have been through addiction or divorce, and especially to women who have felt their entire identity was tied to their spouse,” she said.
The book is set to be released in mid-June.
