Joe Biden’s son Hunter, 49, has allegedly split from his partner of two years Hallie Biden, 45, who was the widow of his late brother Beau.
The break-up comes on the heels of Joe Biden’s highly anticipated presidential campaign announcement just last week.
Hallie was the wife to Joseph ‘Beau’ Biden until he tragically passed away at the age of 46 from brain cancer in 2015. The two share a son and daughter.
Two years after Beau’s death in 2017, Hallie began to rub shoulders with Beau’s younger brother Hunter and the two have remained a couple since.
When they met Hunter was still married to his then-wife Kathleen. That divorce was finalized in April 2017.
Sources say that the break-up was ‘amicable’ but the reason behind the split remains unknown, according to Page Six.
Hunter Biden, 49, and Hallie Biden, 45, have reportedly broken up after two years together. The news comes just one week after Hunter’s father Joe Biden announced he’s running for president

Earlier this year, Hunter opened up to Vanity Fair saying his personal life would not affect his father’s White House bid.
‘Even though my life has been played out in the media, because I am a Biden, my father never once suggested that the family’s public profile should be my priority. The priority has always been clear for my dad, as it is, now, for me: Never run from a struggle. Love people and find a way to love yourself,’ he said.
‘My father has always been proud of me — whether when I was volunteering for the Jesuits, or working as a lawyer . . . And he remains proud of me today. He loves me. And he loves the American people far too much to let any form of adversity stand in the way of service,’ Hunter said in a statement in January.
Hallie and Hunter have been incredibly private about their relationship and have never been pictured together

Joe Biden has been incredibly public about his heartbreak over losing his son Beau to cancer. He cited his eldest son’s death as a reason he didn’t run for president in 2016.
When Hallie and Hunter became a couple following Beau’s passing, the family was supportive.
In 2017 parents Joe and Jill Biden shared a statement saying, ‘We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.’
The two have kept their relationship under wraps and have not been pictured in public together as a couple.

Speaking on his divorce, Hunter says he has persevered thanks to the support of his father.
‘The important aspect of my complicated divorce (like all divorces) and an equally complicated life, marked by the tragic loss of my mother, sister and brother, is this: My father has been a constant source of love and strength in my life,’ Hunter said to Vanity Fair.
In that divorce Kathleen Biden cited irreconcilable differences due to how he spent ‘extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations), while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills.’
They share three children together.
