UPDATE (4/15/2017 at 5:38 p.m. ET): Former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden finalized his divorce from his wife, Kathleen, on Friday, only four months after Kathleen filed papers.

Hunter and Kathleen reached an agreement on "all questions relating to custody, support, property rights, and all other rights," according to court documents obtained by TMZ

Specifics of their settlement were not disclosed.

The Bidens made headlines earlier this year when it was revealed Hunter was dating his late brother Beau's widow Hallie Biden.

UPDATE (3/3/2017 at 12:00 p.m. ET): Hunter Biden's estranged wife, Kathleen, filed a new motion in D.C. Superior Court on February 23, claiming that her ex has "created financial concerns for the family by spending extravagantly on his own interests" during their separation, People magazine reports.

Those interests include "drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations," Kathleen allegedes in the court documents.

She also claims her ex instructed his office to reduce the monthly funds she received by nearly $10,000 in October 2016 but he "secretly continued to spend lavishly, while complaining to Ms. Biden, through counsel, about the financhial issues of the family and Ms. Biden's spending."

She is now requesting that Hunter only get a $5,000 monthly allowance, and she be given $20,000 a month, according to the court documents.

Apparently none of this news comes as a shock to Kathleen's family. 

Her brother John Buhle just laughed when RadarOnline.com reached out to him for comment.

"I'm sorry I don't have [a comment]. Thanks for calling!"

Original story (3/2/2017 at 12:31 p.m. ET): Thanksgiving is going to be a very awkward time in the Biden household.

The widow of former Vice President Joe Biden’s late son Beau is now dating her husband’s married little brother — and ex-VP Joe has weighed in on the entire reality TV-ready affair.

Hallie Biden was “devastated” when Beau died of brain cancer in May 2015 at just 46 years old, Page Six writes.  

Now, less than two years later, she’s found love again with his baby bro Hunter.  

The youngest Biden son, now 47, reportedly separated from his own wife Kathleen in October 2015, five months after his brother died.

While it sounds like the parents of three are broken up, there’s one huge question hanging in the air.

It’s “not clear” if Hunter and Kathleen have filed for divorce, despite the fact the political son is already dating his dead brother’s wife.

Although everyone is scratching their heads over this romance, the new couple can’t wait to share their joy.

“Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time,” Hunter says. “And that’s been obvious to the people who love us most.”

The gushing didn’t end there.

“We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way,” the lawyer — who tested positive for cocaine usage in a 2014 Navy drug test — continues.

Is Hunter’s politician dad one of those people supporting the couple?

Apparently, yes.

President Barack Obama’s former right hand man says, “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 [wife] Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
