Who is Hunter Biden's ex-wife Kathleen?

JOE Biden’s son Hunter was married to Kathleen Buhle Biden for more than 20 years before their split in 2017.

She’s one of several women connected to the second son of the Democratic presidential nominee.

Who is Hunter Biden's first wife Kathleen and when did they marry? 

Kathleen Buhle Biden married Hunter in 1993.

At the time, she was 24 and when the Biden son was 23 years old.

According to a 2019 article from the New York Post, Kathleen works full-time at the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project.

The organization “provides pro bono legal services to domestic violence victims and at-risk children.

Why did Hunter and Kathleen split?

The pair split in 2017 after nearly 24 years of married life.

Kathleen filed for divorce in December 2016 and, per court docs, she accused Hunter of blowing family savings on drugs and prostitutes.

She claimed Hunter was “spending extravagantly on his own interests including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations.”

In April 2017, Kathleen broke down in tears before a judge because of the divorce, according to DailyMail.com.

Kathleen told a judge that she and Hunter had lived apart for six months up until that point and would not be able to reconcile.

Around the time of their divorce, Hunter had been dating Hallie Biden – his late brother Beau’s widow.

How many children do they have together?

Kathleen and Hunter have three children together: Naomi, Fineegan, and Maisy. 

Naomi, 26, was named after grandfather Joe Biden’s daughter of the same name who died in a tragic car accident in 1972 when she was one year old.

She tweeted in August 2020 on the night Joe became the Democratic nominee for president: “I am proud to be your granddaughter every single day @JoeBiden.

“But tonight, I am just as proud to be an American.”

In September, Naomi tweeted a thread in support of her father Hunter after the Senate released a report about his former business dealings with Ukraine.

Finnegan, Kathleen and Hunter’s second eldest child together, was named after Joe’s mom, Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Finnegan Biden.

Youngest daughter Maisy is said to be good friends with former President Barack Obama’s youngest daughter, Sasha.

Joe said of Maisy in 2019: "Her best friend is Sasha Obama.

"Barack and Jill and the whole family, we had a whole get together" for their high school graduation that year.
