Hunter Biden, US President Joe Biden’s son, filed a lawsuit last week to prevent his four-year-old daughter Navy Joan Roberts from adopting the Biden surname, telling an Arkansas court that it would deprive the girl of a “peaceful existence,” according to the New York Post on Saturday.
Biden’s attorney filed a motion asking Arkansas Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer to deny Navy Joan’s mother, former Biden employee Lunden Roberts, from changing her name until the girl is able to decide for herself – once “the disparagement of the Biden name is not at its peak.”
Biden, who denied paternity until a paternity test in 2019 proved otherwise, called the name change “political warfare,” noting that Roberts had sought to have their daughter’s name redacted from court records related to the DNA test. Biden filed for a reduction in child support payments in September, citing a “substantial material change” in his financial circumstances.
In a series of court motions related to the ongoing paternity suit, Roberts filed last month to legally change Navy Joan’s last name to Biden, telling the media through her lawyer that the child would clearly “benefit” from taking on the family name, which was “now synonymous with being well-educated, successful, financially acute, and politically powerful.”
Allowing the girl to bear the Biden name would help to correct the family’s utter disregard for her, according to the filing, which described the relationship as “estranged” to the point of “misconduct or neglect.”
While media reports claimed Biden and Roberts met while she was working as a stripper at Washington DC’s Mpire club, allowing the presidential scion to blame Navy Joan’s conception on his admittedly prodigious drug addiction, Roberts’ lawyer has countered that she was actually a salaried employee of his consulting firm Rosemont Seneca.
Text messages and other records from Biden’s ‘laptop from hell,’ which was abandoned in a Delaware repair shop, show she became pregnant while working for him and was abruptly removed from company health insurance as soon as the child was born.
According to Roberts, Hunter and his father have never met Navy Joan.
