Paternity Suit Filed Against Joe Biden’s Son Hunter
An Arkansas woman claims Hunter Biden is the father of her child — and she’s suing to prove it.
Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed a petition for paternity and child support against Joe Biden’s lawyer son, saying she gave birth to his kid, “Baby Doe,” in August 2018, according to court papers.
The two-page suit was filed in Independence County, Arkansas, on May 28 — nearly two weeks after Hunter tied the knot with a South African woman named Melissa Cohen.
Roberts wants a court to establish that the 49-year-old father of three is her baby’s biological dad. She is also seeking child support and for him to provide health insurance for the now-10-month-old infant. All out-of-pocket expenses would be split between the two parents, the filing said.
Joe Biden has enough problems with his inappropriate touching and sniffing of women and girls, that having his son (who was discharged from the Navy for cocaine use and had a relationship with his late brother Beau’s widow) being named in a paternity suit doesn’t exactly clean up the image of weird creepy stuff being a big problem in that family. According to the report, the suit does not explain how Roberts and Hunter Biden met or how long they were together, and Hunter Biden has yet to be served with legal papers. According to Ms. Roberts' attorney, “She really does not want this to be a media spectacle. She does not want this to affect Joe Biden’s campaign.”
Waiting nearly a year to file the paternity suit hardly jives with that explanation, so we'll have to see just how little of a media spectacle she wants.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Hunter Biden had married his brother's wife. They were, in fact, in a relationship but never married.
