(Newser) – The surprise romance has come to an end: Hunter Biden has reportedly split from Hallie Biden—the widow of his late brother, Beau—after two years of dating. Though Hallie gave no comment to Page Six, sources tell the outlet that the break is "amicable." Beau Biden died from brain cancer in 2015, the same year Hunter and his wife, Kathleen, separated. Their divorce was finalized in April 2017, shortly after Hunter and Hallie's relationship was revealed. Joe Biden then gave it his "complete support."

Some speculated that Hunter's marriage troubles were part of the reason the elder Biden chose not to run for president in 2016. Divorce documents claimed Hunter spent money on "drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations." However, Hunter told Vanity Fair in January that his personal life would not affect his dad's run in 2020. "He loves me. And he loves the American people far too much to let any form of adversity stand in the way of service," he said. (Joe Biden is doing pretty well so far.)
