Ashley Biden is an American fashion designer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, social worker, and activist. She is the daughter of Joe Biden and Jill Tracy Jacobs (Jill Biden). Since childhood, Ashley has been very close to her father, Joe.
Ashley was born on June 8, 1981, in Wilmington, Delaware, United States of America. Her father, Joe Biden, had been active in politics since 1969. He was previously married to Neilia Hunter from 1966 to 1972. They had three children, Beau Biden, Hunter Biden, and Naomi Biden. The three children, along with Neilia, were in a car accident on December 18, 1972. Her mother, Neilia, and sister, Naomi, died after a trailer truck crashed into her station wagon at an intersection. However, Beau and Hunter survived the condition.
On June 17, 1977, Joe Biden and Jill exchanged vows in a Catholic ceremony at the United Nations Chapel in New York. It was his two sons, Beau and Hunter, who convinced him to remarry. In 1999, Ashley was arrested by police for possession of marijuana. However, the prosecutor declined to press charges against her. About a decade later, a 43-minute hidden camera video allegedly showing Ashley taking cocaine was attempted to be sold to the New York Post. The Post didn’t buy the video, however, but they ran a story about it. In January 2015, Ashley lost her half-brother Beau to brain cancer. She is also the aunt of Hunter’s three children: Finnegan, Maisy and Naomi.
