President Joe Biden got a little emotional when he discussed his son’s soon to be released memoir “Beautiful Things,” which discusses his substance abuse battle.

During an interview with CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell on Sunday, the president said Hunter Biden’s memoir gave him hope that his “boy is back” and that he is “proud of him.”

The memoir is set to be released on April 6. Hunter, 51, opens up about his “descent into substance abuse” struggles with alcohol and his “tortuous path to sobriety.”

“You know, I’ll bet there’s not a family you know that doesn’t have somebody in the family that had a drug problem or an alcohol problem,” the president said.

Biden also told the reporter that his son’s openness on his struggles had a deep impact on him. “The honesty with which he stepped forward and talked about the problem and the hope that it gave me hope reading it,” the former vice president said.

“It was like my boy is back… you know what I mean?” Biden continued as he began to get emotional.

Biden has long acknowledged his son’s struggle and long journey of using drugs but says, “He’s fixed it, he’s worked on it.”

“I’m proud of him,” he said. “I’m proud of my son.”

Hunter has also talked multiple times over the years about his personal life—addiction and the loss of his older brother Beau Biden from brain cancer–and past business dealings. He called his refers to those tough times as a moment of “darkness” and spoke of his father’s unwavering support.

“I was in that tunnel — it’s a never-ending tunnel. You don’t get rid of it. You figure out how to deal with it,” he told The New Yorker.

Hunter does not have an official role at the White House and did not help his father with his presidential campaign.

Gallery Books will publish a book and has released an excerpt: “I come from a family forged by tragedies and bound by a remarkable, unbreakable love.”

King Von’s Manager Doesn’t Want To See His Killer Sent To Jail

King Von’s manager, Track, doesn’t want to see his client’s alleged shooter sent to jail.

Regardless of what Lul Tim, the alleged shooter, may believe, the rapper’s manager has no ill wish towards him.

During an interview with VLAD TV on Thursday, Track was asked if he felt justice was served when authorities arrested Quando Rondo’s ally Timothy Leeks, a.k.a Lul Tim, who was taken into custody for the murder of King Von.

“Honest truth, I wouldn’t wish jail on my worst enemies,” he responded.
“That’s just how I am, how I’m built. Honest truth, I could care – that’s his situation, and he gotta deal with it. That’s his team. Whatever’s going on with them, that’s on them.”

Track also said he has no resentment towards the “Crazy Story” rapper’s alleged killer nor any plans to get revenge.

“Me, personally, I know what I’m dealing with, with losing my brother and his family and just making sure we keep everything going,” he adds. “I don’t really think or even consider what’s going on on that side. That’s for them to figure out what they got going on.”

Von, 26, died last year following an altercation outside an Atlanta nightclub. The situation quickly escalated into gunfire, and the Chicago native was fatally shot.

Lul Tim’s involvement in the shooting was confirmed two weeks after Von died in Quando Rando’s song, “End of Story.”

“Lul Timmy riding right or wrong,” he raps, and claimed his friend was acting in self-defense, “Damn right we screaming self-defense, he shouldn’t’ve never put his hands on me/ Look at the footage, that’s all the evidence, see them p***y n***as shouldn’t’ve ran up on me.”

Prince Harry sat down for a wide ranging interview with TV Host James Corden, that aired last night, and shared the real reason why he and his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, decided to leave the royal family and live in the United States.

The interview was conducted on top of a bus that drove around Los Angeles. Harry spoke candidly about many different topics including Netflix’s hit show “The Crown”, and revealed that it was the “toxic” British media that compelled him to take his family and leave.

“We all know what the British press can be like and it was destroying my mental health,” Harry said in the interview for “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”

“This is toxic,” Harry added, explaining the media had created a “really difficult” environment for the couple.

Earlier this month, Markle won a privacy lawsuit against a British media company, after they published parts of an intimate letter she had written to her estranged father. According to court documents, Meghan said the media’s intrusion had caused her “very real sadness” and damaged relationships.

Harry said he decided to move in order to protect his family, “I did what any husband and what any father would do — I need to get my family out of here,” he told James Corden.

He also said that while the couple will not be returning as active members of the royal family, Harry maintained that they “never walked away,” from the responsibilities of public service.

“As far as I’m concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away. I will always be contributing but my life is public service, so wherever I am in the world it is going to be the same thing,” he said.

Tamron asked him if he would ever consider recording new music. The comedian peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his Rick James-produced club hit “Party All the Time” in 1985.

According to Eddie, if he ever did go back into the studio, it wouldn’t be with rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

“Megan Thee Stallion?! I’m 59, I can’t be doing nothing with no Megan Thee Stallion,” he laughs. “You know how crazy I would look doing something with Megan Thee Stallion? I’m gonna be 60 in April. I can’t be having Megan Thee Stallion doing her stuff and I’m standing next to her with my old ass playing my guitar.

“I have my first grandchild,” he adds of his son Miles‘ baby girl. “Once you’re a grandpa, you can’t do no tracks with Megan Thee Stallion.”
