Hunter Biden has asked an Arkansas court to deny his four-year-old daughter, conceived out of wedlock to former stripper Lunden Roberts, taking her last name, the New York Post reported.
The request comes two weeks after Roberts asked Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer to change her daughter’s last name to Biden, saying she would “benefit from carrying the Biden last name” and that the ” Biden’s name is now synonymous with being well-educated, successful, financially well off and politically powerful.
Robert’s filing also noted that the child remained “estranged” from the Biden family to the point of “misconduct or neglect.”
“[I]This can be rectified by changing her surname to Biden so that she can unmistakably be known to the world as the defendant’s child and a member of the prestigious Biden family,” the filing states.
However, the week after Robert’s request, Hunter Biden’s lawyers asked the judge to stop the change, arguing that it would deprive the child, Navy Joan, of a “peaceful existence”, the Job reported.
Lawyers also argued that the daughter should choose whether she wants to take the Biden name once “the bashing of the Biden name isn’t at its height.”
President Joe Biden’s disgraced son initially denied conceiving the child with Roberts, but a 2019 DNA test confirmed the child was his. An Arkansas judge then ruled in January 2020 that Hunter Biden was the child’s “biological and legal” father.
Weeks after the decision, Hunter Biden agreed to pay Roberts spousal support, but in September 2022 requested a reduction in payments, saying his “financial situation” had made him unable to meet the payments originally agreed.
