LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS: The Arkansas woman who gave birth to Hunter Biden’s love child, Navy Joan Roberts, has asked the court to legally change the 4-year-old girl’s last name to Biden so that the child can enjoy the advantage from the family's presidential ancestry. It was one of four filings made in the case by Lunden Roberts, 31, that was originally settled in March 2020. The case was reopened in September when Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, filed a motion to have his child support payments adjusted.

Attorney Clinton Lancaster told an Independence County court that Navy Joan Roberts would “benefit from carrying the Biden family name,” which he said was “now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute, and politically powerful," as per New York Post. Navy's mother claimed that neither Hunter nor the child’s grandfather, President Biden, have ever met her daughter. This week’s filings said the family remained “estranged from the child.”

“To the extent this [estrangement] is misconduct or neglect, it can be rectified by changing her last name to Biden so that she may undeniably be known to the world as the child of the defendant and member of the prestigious Biden family,” Lancaster wrote. The filing came after the 52-year-old told the courts he had undergone a “substantial material change” in his “financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income.”

Hunter Biden shares three adult daughters with ex-wife Kathleen Buhle and a 2-year-old son with second wife Melissa Cohen Biden. He settled with Roberts in 2020 after a DNA test confirmed he had fathered Navy. According to the text messages reviewed by the outlet last year, Roberts was also on the payroll at Hunter’s consulting firm while pregnant with their daughter.

Lancaster requested the court on Tuesday, December 27, to deny Hunter’s request for lowered child support due to a “long, and lengthy, history of attempting to avoid discovery by filing endless and recurrent motions for protective orders.” The attorney also alleged the first son is “attempting to stifle discovery into his financial affairs while simultaneously reducing his child support obligation on the claim that he now earns less income.”

Roberts’ request to turn over a list of Hunter's homes and cars had been refused by him over the past decade as the former stripper sought to show the court his “well-established history of a lavish lifestyle,” court records allege.  Lancaster asked the courts to toss the order of protection filed by Hunter against Roberts as he claimed it was filed incorrectly. “Mr. Biden cannot pick and choose which documents he will disclose — to do so is to limit the plaintiff to the blind faith of what the defendant said he made as income,” he wrote.

Information about the federal government’s ongoing tax fraud investigation into Hunter was also asked by Roberts’ lawyer which has been underway since 2018. Roberts herself reportedly testified before the feds in connection with the probe this spring. “Mr. Hunter Biden has been the subject of federal investigations and there are allegations that he failed to disclose all his income prior to this court’s last order regarding child support,” the motion read.

Roberts also asked the court if Hunter receives any financial benefits from his father's presidency and information about Hollywood attorney Kevin Morris, who the outlet reported this spring loaned Hunter $2 million to pay off his debt to Uncle Sam. Initially, Hunter denied that he was Navy’s biological dad, and said that he had “no recollection” of meeting her mother even though she danced at a DC strip club he frequently visited while dating his widowed sister-in-law Hallie, as per the outlet.

“That’s how little connection I had with anyone. I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for,” he wrote of his drug-fueled sex “rampages” in his 2021 memoir 'Beautiful Things'. “The other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type,” the book read. “We would satisfy our immediate needs and little else.”
