Mom outed Hunter Biden as father of child over unpaid support: lawyer – Business Insider
The mother of Hunter Biden’s previously unknown child outed him as the father because he stopped paying to support the child, her lawyers say.
Attorneys for Lunden Alexis Roberts submitted a court filing on Wednesday declaring “with scientific certainty” that Biden was the father of the child, born in August 2018.
Attorneys say the decision was made over Biden’s “refusal to continue to support his child.” They are seeking $11,058 in fees, and filed a petition for paternity and child support.
“She really does not want this to be a media spectacle. She does not want this to affect Joe Biden’s campaign. She just wants this baby to get financial support from the baby’s father,” attorney Clint Lancaster said.
The attorneys said Biden is “not expected to challenge the results.” He has yet to respond to the claim.
Clint and Jennifer Lancaster filed a petition for paternity and child support on May 29, months before the case became public.
They say Biden previously admitted to Roberts that he was the father, but that she has gone public because he stopped providing child support.
“She really does not want this to be a media spectacle. She does not want this to affect Joe Biden’s campaign. She just wants this baby to get financial support from the baby’s father,” Clint Lancaster told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Roberts met Biden while studying at George Washington University, her lawyers said.
Business Insider contacted Biden’s attorney, Dustin McDaniel, for comment, but is yet to receive a response.
