Hunter Biden has been accused of trashing a $4.2 million home while skipping out on the rent for months at a time, according to The Daily Mail. The First Son reportedly left the home in Venice Beach, California in “disarray and disrepair” when he and his family moved out.
Hunter moved in in February 2021 with his son Beau and his second wife Melissa. The property was then owned by Sweetgreen CEO and co-founder Jonathan Neman, who co-founded the farm-to-table salad chain in 2007. A source told the outlet that the couple were horrible tenants that did not pay $80,000 in rent. They also allegedly left the house a mess and destroyed the stereo equipment.
Neman was renting out the house for $25,000 a month but sold it last March for $3.9 million. The home is now worth $4.2 million. The owner has not taken the Bidens to court. The source added that Neman found the situation embarrassing and did not need the money anyway.
The news comes as Hunter’s former business partner Devon Archer recently testified to the House Oversight Committee about Joe Biden’s knowledge of his son’s foreign business dealings. Archer said that Hunter, who was sitting on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, sold his father’s “brand,” which suggests that the Biden’s were in the business of selling their influence.
Archer’s testimony contradicts Biden’s previous claims that he never spoke with his son about his business. While on the campaign trail in 2019, Biden alleged that any claim otherwise was a “smear” by Donald Trump.
But Archer’s statements corroborate an FBI document that the committee obtained, in which Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky admitted to bribing the Biden’s with two $5 million payments if they could get Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired.
