According to the Daily Mail, Roberts has accused the First Son of hiding financial assets, including profit from his work as an artist. Hunter Biden claimed in September that he had "'a substantial material change" to his income that prevented him from honoring his child support payments. Roberts' lawyer, Clinton Lancaster,, said it was "inappropriate and unjust" that Biden had been withholding his paternity payments.
32-year-old Roberts worked as a stripper when the two met and conceived daughter Navv Joan Roberts, who is now four years old and whom Biden has never met. Biden was in a relationship with his sister-in-law via his dead brother Beau at the time. Hunter Biden initially denied paternity until a DNA test proved he was the father in 2019, leading to a settlement with his baby's mother for $2.5 million in 2020.
Biden agreed to pay child support as part of the settlement.
The lawsuit may force the president's son to reveal who has been buying his artwork as Biden's paintings have reportedly sold for as much as $500,000. Lancaster, said in a December 27, 2022 court filing, "The plaintiff asked for detailed information about the defendant’s works of 'art' and the purchasers of the same."
In Hunter Biden's 2021 memoir, Beautiful Things, he said he was so distraught and in a "rampage" after divorcing Kathleen Buhle that he was incapable of remembering the multiple women with whom he had sex.
"It's why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine," Hunter Biden said. "I had no recollection of our encounter. That's how little connection I had with anyone."
Hunter Biden missed multiple deadlines to turn over documents pertaining to the case and his appearance Monday at Independence County Circuit Court was ordered by Judge Holly Meyer.In January, Hunter Biden requested that a judge deny a request by Roberts to give daughter Navy the last name of Biden.
