Today, Hunter Biden’s ex-wife of 24 years Katherine Buhle sat down with Good Morning America to chat about their marriage, Hunter’s “massive” drug addiction, and the tragedy he wrought upon his family.
Buhle wrote a memoir on her marriage with Biden, titled “If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction and Healing.” In the book, Buhle said Hunter was struggling with drug addiction even early on in the pair’s marriage.
When ABC’s Amy Robach asked Buhle about the pornographic, disheveled images of Hunter uncovered on his laptop, Buhle said she did not recognize the man she married.
Good Morning America reports:
“He was struggling under a massive drug addiction, and that’s heartbreaking and painful and that wasn’t who I was married to.”
Hunter Biden, who wrote about his addiction struggle in his own memoir, “Beautiful Things,” revealed in December 2020, shortly after his dad was elected president, that federal investigators had been probing his “tax affairs” and business dealings.
In March, sources told ABC News that witnesses called before a grand jury in Delaware had been asked about payments Hunter Biden received while serving on the board of directors of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma, in addition to other questions about how he paid off tax obligations in recent years.
When asked whether she saw Hunter Biden curry favor or seek profit based on the identity of his father — who served as U.S. senator and vice president before becoming president — Buhle said she saw in her ex-husband someone who “loved his father.”

While still married to Hunter Biden, Buhle said she learned from the family’s therapist that he was in a relationship with Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother, Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015.
According to Buhle, in 2016, one of her three daughters with Hunter Biden saw text messages on her dad’s phone between him and Hallie and called the therapist to help tell Buhle.
