Are Hunter Biden and Melissa Cohen heading for divorce? Scandals and probes put couple under pressure
Hunter Biden’s marriage to Melissa Cohen may be under pressure, sources have claimed. The marriage may not be going smooth at the moment due to the federal investigation into President Joe Biden's son. Sources close to Hunter said that both he and his wife “are frustrated because they are in lockdown." Cohen has reportedly told her friends that life with Hunter is “hard."
“They never go anywhere because they’ve been instructed to stay out of sight and away from the cameras while the investigation into Hunter continues," Page Six quoted a source as saying. “Added to the pressure, the Secret Service lives in a much larger mansion next door to them and they watch over Hunter like hawks. It is extremely frustrating for both of them.”
Hunter, 52, and Melissa, 35, have been staying at their $20,000-a-month three-bedroom rented home in Little Rock, Malibu, with their baby, Beau. The home also houses his art studio. They have mostly been confined to their house except when they went out for trips to the White House for family events. On occasional outings, Cohen is surrounded by Secret Service agents. Splashing out $30,000 a month of taxpayers’ money, the Secret Service has rented a bigger luxury Malibu mansion that overlooks their place, in an attempt to keep an eye on Hunter.
Hunter and Cohen tied the knot on May 16, 2019, in Los Angeles. It is said that the pair had not known each other very long before their marriage, according to The Sun. The two reportedly first met the same month they got married.
"I instantly fell in love with her,” Hunter had previously told ABC News. “And then I've fallen in love with her more every day.” Cohen reportedly co-owns Tribal Worlds, a company that works to “promote indigenous conservation." She is also said to be a documentary filmmaker. She was critical of former President Donald Trump and supportive of the Obama presidency before she met Hunter.
The source has now said of Hunter and Cohen, "He whisked her off her feet. She thought she was marrying a prince from a great American family and she’d live a charmed life with him. But the reality is he’s a train wreck and life with him is very hard behind closed doors. She had no idea what she was getting into.” "But there is still love there, and she loves her son. She is focusing on him, for now, that’s all she can do," the source added.
It was recently reported that the federal investigation against Hunter has reached a “critical stage." He could be facing charges related to possible tax or foreign lobbying violations, Fox News reported. Authorities have been probing Hunter’s finances and overseas business deals conducted by Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, a prosecutor appointed by Donald Trump.
Hunter had previously married Kathleen Buhle in 1993. The two, who have three children named Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy, were separated in 2015 and divorced in 2017. Hunter began dating Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother, Beau, in 2016. The two later split.
