WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Hunter Biden is being accused of smoking crack inside a VIP room of a Washington D.C. strip club last year, according to a Page Six report.
- Employees at the Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club said Hunter, who was a regular there, dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits.
- The former vice president’s son has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction including a cocaine relapse in 2016.
Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was suspected of smoking crack inside a VIP room of a strip club where he usually dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits. This incident took place at the same time the younger Biden held a seat on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma.
The incident, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, DC, was the most recent alleged drug use by 49-year-old Hunter Biden. The former vice president’s son has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction that included a crack binge in 2016.
According to workers at the club, Hunter was a regular there, with two bartenders and a security worker all instantly recognizing his photo and one employee identifying him by name.
Hunter would regularly stay in a VIP room and drink during his visits, security worker Ranko Petrovic said. Although Petrovic said Archibald’s “had no issue with him,” former club managing partner James Ritter said one occasion in late last year was marred by a “suspicion of drug use.”
“There was a smell of burning Styrofoam in the VIP room. We told him nothing illegal can go on here,” Ritter said. “We didn’t see anything illegal. After he was spoken to, the smell stopped. VIP employees suspected it was crack.”
Hunter’s latest controversy was a paternity scandal with an Arkansas woman, Lunden Alexis Roberts. A DNA test last month confirmed Hunter is the biological father of Robert’s child, which Hunter earlier denied.
Kathleen Biden, Hunter’s wife of 22 years, said he spent extravagantly on prostitutes and drugs, in a divorce filing from early 2017.
In October 2016, Hunter checked into rehab at the Grace Grove Lifestyle Center in Sedona, Arizona, but left after only a week and headed to the nearby Mii Amo resort spa. He was joined there by his older brother Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden, where they allegedly launched an affair that lasted about a year, the New Yorker reported.
In May, Hunter secretly married Melissa Cohen, 33 after just a six-day romance.
During an ABC interview last month, Hunter said he’d “done estimable things and things I regret,” but was now in “probably the best place I’ve ever been in my life.”
