About Hunter Biden’s wife – Melissa Cohen

Melissa Cohen is the second and current wife of Hunter Biden. She is a South African-American activist and documentary filmmaker. She was born in 1986 in Johannesburg, South Africa, and is reported to be 37 years old in 2023. 

Melissa Cohen is the co-owner of the company called Tribal Worlds, a Los Angeles-based company that promotes indigenous conservation. She is also a vocal advocate for environmental groups and has been a member of Greenpeace, a group that was formed in the 1970s to speak out against environmental issues. She was formerly married to businessman Jason Landver in Los Angeles in 2011 but got divorced in 2014. She got married to Hunter Biden in 2019 and their union is blessed with one child.

According to reports, Hunter Biden and Melissa Cohen’s marriage is going through issues due to the investigation into his possible tax or foreign lobbying violations. The couple has been advised to stay out of sight while the investigation continues. As of June 2023, Hunter Biden is expected to plead guilty to two tax charges due to a deal he made with the Justice Department in order to escape federal charges for possessing a gun while using illegal drugs.

Hunter Biden’s crime

According to information gathered by DNB Stories Africa, the Justice Department has been looking into Hunter Biden’s personal and business dealings for years. Hunter confirmed in 2020 that the US attorney’s office in Delaware informed his legal counsel that investigators were looking into his tax affairs while stating that he has handled his affairs “legally and appropriately”.

According to reports, the investigation narrowed down to two main issues: Biden’s failure to pay income taxes on time and a charge related to lying on a firearm application form. Hunter was also charged with one count of illegally possessing a firearm. According to the report, he violated a law that prohibits people who are addicted to controlled substances from owning a gun.

According to fresh reports, Hunter will not plead guilty to the firearm charge as he has agreed to enter into a Pretrial Diversion Agreement which will see the firearm charge dismissed if he pled guilty to the tax charges.

Meanwhile, the White House issued a brief statement in June 2023 through a spokesperson on the charges against Hunter.

The statement reads:

The President and First Lady love their son and support him as he continues to rebuild his life. We will have no further comment.
