The ex-husband of Jill Biden has asserted that the then-future first lady fabricated the story of her and the president's 1970s meeting and was involved in extramarital relations with Joe Biden.
When he first came forward, Bill Stevenson asserted that the then-presumptive Democratic candidate was a home wrecker and that the frequently repeated anecdote regarding how Joe and Jill met on a blind date was completely false, as The Inquisitr reported.
Stevenson and his then-spouse, Jill, developed a close relationship with Joe Biden during his 1972 campaign for the U.S. Senate from Delaware/
Unfortunately, Neilia, Biden's first wife, and their infant daughter were both killed in a car accident during the same year.
Some of Stevenson's Comments
Stevenson shared, "I don't want to hurt anyone. But facts are facts and what happened, happened."
Jill's former husband floated the idea of publishing a tell-all book but refrained from disclosing the potential title. Furthermore, the interview in which he spoke about the situation took place before Joe Biden was elected president.
He continued, "It's ready to go. They can print 30,000 copies in 10 days. I genuinely don't want to harm Jill's chances of becoming First Lady. She would make an excellent First Lady — but this is my story. It's not a bitter book — I'm not bitter because, if it wasn't for my divorce, I would never have met my wife Linda and she's the greatest thing in my life — but it does have facts in it that aren't pleasant to Jill and Joe."
He further added, "People ask me how I can go back 40 years, but I am not, I'm going back 72 years to tell my life story. The book is about 300 pages long and Jill only takes up about 80 of them."
Tales from a Rocky Marriage
The pair were married in 1970, but the bliss didn't last, interrupted, as it allegedly was, by infidelity. "It was February, I believe it was the 7th." Stevenson continued.
"I know exactly when [the affair] was. Bruce Springsteen was going to play at The Stone Balloon and I had to go to Northern New Jersey to pay him in advance. I asked Jill to go with me and she said no — she had things to do, she had to look after Joe’s kids, Beau and Hunter," Stevenson recalled.
"It was kind of a big deal to go meet Springsteen. I had no idea she and Joe were that kind of friendly. Then one of her best friends told me she thought Joe and Jill were getting a little too close. I was surprised that she came to me," he added.
Stevenson revealed, "I was at work and a guy came in and asked, ‘Do you own a brown Corvette?' He said back in May it had crunched his bumper and they told him to get an estimate and he never heard back from them."
"I said, ‘Wait a minute. Who is they?’ And he said, ‘Funnily enough, Senator Biden was driving. I considered Joe a friend. I’m not surprised he fell in love with Jill. Everyone who meets Jill falls in love with her immediately. It’s hard not to," he concluded.
