The Real Reason Jill Biden Got Divorced

By AMANDA RAY BYERLY

Jill Biden's ex-husband Bill Stevenson has claimed that he and his ex-wife helped Joe Biden secure a senate seat during his first election in 1972. Stevenson said that he donated $10,900 in cash to help Joe's first campaign, which makes the dissolution of Stevenson's marriage feel a bit off.

During an interview with Daily Mail, Bill Stevenson revealed he had his suspicions all along about his wife and the charming politician. She turned down meeting Bruce Springsteen to stay at Joe's house with his kids, and one of Jill's friends told Stevenson his wife was "getting a little too close" with Joe.

In October 1974, a man approached Stevenson, telling him that Jill's brown Corvette had crunched the man's bumper; "they" had told him to get an estimate and he never heard back from "them." Stevenson recalls, "I said: 'Wait a minute. Who is they?' And he said: 'Funnily enough, Senator Biden was driving.'"

After that incident, Stevenson asked Jill to leave their home and she did — the marriage was O-V-E-R. However, the Bidens tell a different story, as Joe claims he first spotted Jill in an advertisement and eventually called her to ask her out; Jill corroborated this in her 2019 biography "Where The Light Enters."
