Hunter Biden asks judge to stop daughter from taking his surname

Hunter Biden asks judge to STOP his estranged daughter, 4, born to Arkansas stripper from taking his surname by claiming doing so would rob youngster of ‘peaceful existence’

  • Hunter Biden made the request on January 6 after the child’s mother Lunden Roberts filed to have 4-year-old Navy’s last name changed to Biden  
  • Roberts, 31, said the Biden name is ‘synonymous with being successful’, but Hunter claims it will cause the little girl serious problems
  • The petition was filed after Hunter asked for child support payment adjustments 
  • The Biden family, including Hunter, reportedly never met Navy, who was born in August 2018 to Roberts, a stripper at a club that Hunter used to frequent

Hunter Biden asked for a judge to deny his estranged four-year-old daughter born to a stripper from taking his surname, claiming that doing so would rob the child of a ‘peaceful existence.’

The request was made by the president’s son on January 6, just a couple of weeks after the child’s mother Lunden Roberts filed a name change petition for their daughter, Navy Joan Roberts.

Roberts, 31, who is raising Navy in Arkansas, filed the petition last month amid an ongoing paternity suit over child support payments that were adjusted because Biden’s ‘financial circumstances’ had undergone a ‘substantial, material change.’

While Biden is claiming that the name change would be harmful to the child, Roberts said it would benefit their daughter because it is ‘now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute and politically powerful.’

The Biden family, including Hunter, reportedly never met Navy, who was born in August 2018 to Roberts, a stripper at a club that Hunter used to frequent.

Navy, who is being raised by her mother in Arkansas and bears a striking resemblance to a young Hunter, does not have access to Secret Service protection like the rest of the Bidens do

Lunden Roberts, 31, who is raising Navy Joan Roberts in Arkansas, filed a petition last month to have her surname changed to Biden, claiming it would benefit her because it is ‘now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute and politically powerful’ 

In the filing last month, it was stated that Navy remains ‘estranged’ from the Biden family and suggests that this ‘misconduct or neglect’ can be rectified by giving her the Biden name.

But Hunter Biden, who is at the center of a federal probe for his foreign business deals, is now fighting the petition, arguing that the name would not do any favors for the child. 

Hunter’s lawyer filed the motion earlier this month asking the judge to deny Roberts’ request, arguing that the child should decide for herself once ‘the disparagement of the Biden name is not at its height.’

Hunter claimed that Roberts’ motivation is now ‘political warfare’ against the Bidens, and that it reverses her efforts in late 2019 to redact their daughter’s name and any other identifying information about her from the public court record.

On December 27, Roberts asked Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer to allow the child to take the Biden name, claiming she remains ‘estranged’ from the family and suggests that this ‘misconduct or neglect’ can be rectified by giving her the name.

‘To the extent, this 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,’ Roberts said in her filing. 

The little girl is being raised by her mother in Arkansas. Navy, who bears a striking resemblance to a young Hunter, does not have access to Secret Service protection like the rest of the Bidens do.

She is Hunter’s fourth of five children who was conceived while he was still in a relationship with Hallie Biden, his brother Beau Biden’s widow, who he got together with after her husband died of brain cancer in 2015.

He’s currently married to South African native Melissa Cohen, who he wed a week after meeting and with whom he shares two-year-old Beau – named after his dead brother.

Hunter, 52, initially denied being Navy’s dad, saying he had ‘no recollection’ of meeting her mother. But a DNA test in 2019 confirmed he was the father of Navy.

They had met at a gentleman’s club called Mpire Club in Washington, DC, where Roberts, 31, was performing as ‘Dallas,’ the same time Hunter was dating his older brother’s widow. 

After a DNA test proved Hunter was the father, he and Roberts settled for $2.5 million in 2020. Hunter now also pays monthly child support and healthcare for the girl

According to his memoir Beautiful Things, that period of Hunter’s life was filled with hard drug use and ‘rampages’ of random sex with women who were ‘hardly the dating type’

According to his memoir Beautiful Things, that period of Hunter’s life was filled with hard drug use and ‘rampages’ of random sex with women who were ‘hardly the dating type.’ 

‘That’s how little connection I had with anyone. I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for,’ he wrote.

Roberts was reportedly on the payroll of Hunter’s consulting firm for a time before she gave birth to their daughter. In February of this year Roberts testified in front of a federal grand jury investigating Hunter on charges of tax fraud and violations of foreign lobbying laws.

In September of last year, Hunter asked a court to recalculate his child support payments, arguing he could no longer afford them. 

He filed a motion citing ‘a substantial material change’ in his ‘financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income.’

In the 2019 paternity suit Hunter had also tried to skirt by without supporting his love child, telling a court he had ‘significant debt’ from his divorce from ex-wife Kathleen.

‘I attest that I am unemployed and have had no monthly income since May 2019,’ he wrote.

At the time he was living in a $12,000-a-month Los Angeles rental property and driving a Porsche Panamera. An analysis first reported by NBC and confirmed by DailyMail.com found Hunter’s firm had made $11 million from 2013 to 2018.

In his book, Hunter admitted to burning through cash to pay for drugs and partying with strangers who regularly stole from him.
