Hunter Biden’s ex-wife Kathleen Buhle is spilling the beans in her new memoir on how her daughters shockingly found out that their father was having a torrid affair with his brother Beau’s widow.

The memoir entitled, “If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing,” is an expose on the couple’s early relationship and then their divorce. In it, she reveals that the girls discovered their dad’s involvement with Beau’s widow after finding his cellphone.

The daughters found text messages on the phone between their father and Hallie Biden. Then the mother hurriedly drove over to their therapist’s house after receiving an urgent call from one daughter, pleading with her to come there.

Their therapist, Debbie, was asked to break the news to Buhle about the affair. “Can you tell her? We can’t do it,” one daughter told the therapist, according to an excerpt from the memoir that was published in People magazine.

“Hunter’s having an affair with Hallie,” the therapist bluntly told Buhle.

“If anything, I felt a strange vindication. Not only had I not been crazy, but it was so much worse than I could have imagined. I was shocked, but not heartbroken. Heartbreak had already flattened my self-esteem that past year,” the ex-wife admitted in an excerpt from the book.

The therapist told her that she and her daughters had called Hunter and told him that they knew about the affair.

Buhle’s comment was that it was a “relief” that there were “no more secrets.”

The memoir also goes into the relationship between the couple following the death of Beau Biden in May 2015. Buhle noted that Hunter spent a lot of time with Hallie after the funeral.

When Buhle found a crack pipe in an ashtray, that was the last straw and she forced Hunter to move out. She admitted to her “own kind of addiction,” where she was fixated on Hunter Biden’s every move in connection to credit card charges. He lied to her and told her at the time that he was “healthy and sober” and he allegedly called her crazy.

“I didn’t want to admit, to myself or anyone else, how unhealthy our relationship had become, so my struggle was just one more secret,” she wrote.

When asked by People in an interview about the “Justice Department investigation into his finances and business affairs,” Buhle responded, “Whether or not I’m questioned, I couldn’t be of any help… I kept my head so deeply buried in the sand on our finances.”

“He started many ventures… a real estate investment fund and then a technology company. I didn’t understand any of it, or what pieces of his businesses actually generated income for us. I worried that we lived above our means, but I did nothing to change it. The way that Hunter and I handled money was that whenever I needed any, I called Hunter. More than once my debit card was declined at a store. I’d have to call Hunter to transfer money into my account. Hunter and I drove nice cars and had a beautiful home, but we were running fast on that hamster wheel and barely staying on,” she writes in her book.

Following Barack Obama’s and Biden’s victory in 2008, a Secret Service agent visited their home and informed them that Hunter and their three daughters would have Secret Service details assigned to each of them. Buhle did not receive a detail, which she claimed felt like “one frequent reminder I wasn’t a true Biden.”

Hunter Biden allegedly told her when they first met that he came from a middle-class family according to the memoir. When she visited his home, she told him, “[A] kid from a middle-class family does not have a ballroom.”

After the couple divorced in 2017, Buhle was diagnosed with colon cancer. She beat the odds and is now cancer-free.

Her memoir, “If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing,” is slated to be released on June 14.
