Hunter Biden talks about his controversial romance with the wife of late brother Beau in his memoir
In his memoir, Beautiful Things, Hunter Biden opened about the bond and grief he and his brother Beau’s widow went through after his death in 2015. Now the son of the POTUS is telling all about how her pain turned into romance.
According to Hunter, when Beau was still alive, he and Hallie were not close at all.

As they both mourned after his death, she became his “confidante,” the closest of all, who understood what he was feeling and went through the most.
During this time he also got deeper into substance abuse and she was always there for him.
In the book, he even remembers one night in 2016 when he drove across the country on a two-week bend.

He crashed his car in Arizona and detoxified on a spa ranch.
When he felt he was finally ready to return home, he called Hallie and asked him to pick him up, not Kathleen Biden, who was still his wife at the time.
“I was the lowest and she was the most in need, and we just clung to each other with devotion. We talked at length about how much we would rely on each other, how our health and well-being seemed to depend on the love we wanted to share … When we returned to Delaware at the end of the week, we were no longer just people, tied to shared grief. We were a couple. ‘
Shortly after Kathleen found out about the affair, she filed for divorce.
The story hit the headlines and Hunter moved in with Hallie and her children.
He writes: “Our life in silent desperation was suddenly in full swing. I tried so badly to hold onto just one piece of my brother’s and I think Hallie tried to do the same. Neither of us had viewed the relationship as a long-term or permanent commitment until it was released, and then neither of us was ready to let the other go. There is no question about the invisible force at the center of it all: Beau. It seems obvious now, but then it was this unspoken dynamic that started driving us: the idea that we could keep Beau alive by just being together – that we could bring him back to life through mutual love. ‘
