Hunter Biden’s ex wife accused him of having an affair, being ’emotionally abusive’ and using Viagra after she discovered his relationship with his brother’s widow, emails obtained by DailyMail.com appear to show.
Kathleen Biden sent the emails in July 2016, after reportedly discovering romantic texts between her husband and Hallie Biden, Hunter’s sister-in-law.
Hunter’s new memoir, Beautiful Things, reportedly reveals that Kathleen found the tell-tale texts on Hunter’s old iPad, sparking their final split.
Kathleen refers to his alleged affair in an angry email obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter’s abandoned laptop, accusing her then-husband of cheating and buying gifts for his mistress.
‘I’m leaving you because you are having an affair and you have been emotionally abusive,’ Kathleen wrote on July 28, 2016.
‘You say you were surprised by my asking for a separation and needed time to process it. I was surprised when I found your bottles of Viagra and Cialis. I was surprised when I found airline purchases and jewelry purchases.’

Kathleen sent the emails in July 2016, after reportedly discovering romantic texts between her husband and Hallie – the widow of Hunter’s brother Beau. ‘I’m leaving you because you are having an affair and you have been emotionally abusive,’ Kathleen wrote on July 28, 2016
Kathleen’s email says that she forgave him for previous infidelity, but that this affair – reportedly with his late brother Beau’s widow – was the final straw.
Their relationship had been on the rocks since Beau died of brain cancer on May 30, 2015.
Two months later Hunter, who struggled with addiction his whole life, moved out of their marital home after breaking his sobriety pact with Kathleen, according to a 2019 interview he gave to the New Yorker.

By October that year the couple had formally separated, their divorce papers say.
Kathleen’s court filings also accused Hunter of prolific use of drugs and prostitutes.
But the final blow to their two-decade marriage didn’t come until Kathleen discovered Hunter had begun an affair with Hallie, he is reportedly set to reveal in his new memoir.
In the 255-page book, out on April 6, Hunter says Kathleen found texts betraying the controversial relationship on his old iPad, according to a source who spoke to The Sun on Tuesday.
‘The book admits that this was the final straw for Kathleen,’ the publishing source told the paper.
‘She’d tried for years to help him beat his addiction to crack cocaine and booze. But then she found out he was sleeping with his brother’s wife. She said he was a sicko.’
Emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal what may have been that breaking point.
‘Hunter, you cheated on me. You continued to cheat on me while I worked with [medical professionals] Kolmac, Debbie, etc to get you help,’ Kathleen wrote on July 18 2016 in an email titled ‘Final words’.
‘Not only did you cheat on me, Viagra and Cialis, you actually bought her expensive gifts.
‘I am stronger than you think. I’m not standing by while you treat me like dirt. I lost Beau, I lost my husband, I lost the family that I thought was mine. I continue to try and continue to feel like I am making things worse. ‘I am finished.’
In an email with the subject line ‘Final words’, Kathleen writes ‘You cheated on me. Not only did you cheat on me, Viagra and Cialis, you actually bought her expensive gifts’
Kathleen suggested that she had suspected Hunter’s infidelity, but he responded by ‘telling me that I’m crazy’, and ‘taunting’ her about his late brother and Beau’s children Natalie and Hunter
She followed up with further accusations on July 28, telling Hunter he had been ’emotionally abusive.’
‘I’m leaving you because you are having an affair and you have been emotionally abusive. I forgave you for cheating before, I tried to help you get sober and you made it clear, throughout the past year, that you didn’t want to be with me,’ she wrote.
‘You didn’t want my forgiveness and you didn’t want my help with your recovery.
‘You say you were surprised by my asking for a separation and needed time to process it. I was surprised when I found your bottles of Viagra and Cialis. I was surprised when I found airline purchases and jewelry purchases.
‘It has taken a long time for me to process that the man I loved, the marriage that I thought I would be in for the rest of my life, is gone.’
Kathleen suggested that she had suspected Hunter’s infidelity, but he responded by ‘telling me that I’m crazy’, and ‘taunting’ her about his late brother and Beau’s children Natalie and Hunter.
‘I’ve had some time for the reality of what you’ve done to sink in. I’ve been able to really reflect on how you’ve treated me and realize the emotional abuse you have subjected me to over the past year. Your taunts about Beau, Natalie and Hunter,’ she wrote.
‘Your telling me that I’m crazy – that everyone is mad at me and the girls worried about me. Your denials of the cheating and what now appears to be an affair.
‘I have woken up to my reality. No one should be treated the way you have treated me. I won’t take it anymore.’
Hunter coldly responded, asking her not to email his work address because his colleagues might read it.
‘So unbelievable that this is your response,’ his livid wife replied.
If Kathleen’s emails are referring to an affair with Hallie, it would blow Hunter’s own timeline out of the water.
The president’s son claimed in his 2019 New Yorker interview that it wasn’t until August 2016, when he vacationed in the Hamptons with Hallie and her children, that he started to become close to her.

He told the magazine that their romantic relationship only began in the fall of that year, when Hallie flew to meet Hunter after he got out of rehab in Arizona.
Kathleen filed for divorce on December 9, 2016, and his relationship with Hallie was publicly revealed on March 1 the following year.
DailyMail.com revealed that Hunter was paid up to $2million by publisher Simon & Schuster Gallery Books for his memoir.
He could earn millions more if he signs up for a movie or TV deal over the book, industry insiders say.
The book reportedly defends Hunter’s affair with Hallie.
‘Hunter claims it started because they needed each other,’ the publishing insider told the Sun.
‘She was grieving her husband’s painful death and he was making his latest attempt to detox.’
The newspaper reported Tuesday that the book accuses Donald Trump of making phony corruption allegations against Hunter and his father.
But the book reportedly fails to mention his own texts about a police investigation into his handgun Hallie left in a grocery store trash can because she was ‘scared he would harm himself’ – published by DailyMail.com last week.
