The alleged account listed Hunter Biden's birthday as 1980, although he was born on February 4, 1970.

On May 15, Netflix released the three-part documentary series Ashley Madison: S--, Lies and Scandal, which explored how the users tried to find affair partners on the website Ashley Madison despite being in a marriage or a relationship. Aside from the website's story, it also named several known personalities that put a spotlight on their infidelities.

One of the people mentioned in the series was Hunter Biden. The second eldest son of President Joe Biden, who denied involvement with the dating site, claimed that someone used his email address to set him up.

"I am certain that the account in question is not mine," Hunter alleged in a statement in 2015.

He added, "This is, unfortunately, not the first time that someone has used my name and identity to try to discredit me. From my understanding through press accounts, it is very easy to set up an account without someone's knowledge as there is no requirement that an email address be verified and I am certain that is what happened in this case."

But now seeing how it's the 'news of the day' and everyone is wondering what I think about it — here it is."

"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife," he said.

The convicted reality star added, "I was hiding my own personal failings. As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example. I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time."
