A former stripper who is mother to one of Hunter Biden's five children is asking a court to change her daughter's last name to Biden.
A report in the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reveals Lunden Alexi Roberts has filed a request with the court to have 4-year-old Navy's last name changed to Biden, her father's name, because, her lawyer says, the name is "synonymous with being successful."
Navy was born in 2018 to Roberts, who was a stripper at a club where Hunter Biden attended often, and the Biden family reportedly never has met her. She's been left out of any and all references the family had made in recent years to Hunter's family, and children.
The report explained the name change was requested after Hunter Biden filed documents insisting his child support payments be adjusted because his "financial circumstances" had changed significantly.
The Gazette said Clinton Lancaster, a lawyer for Roberts, explained Navy would "benefit from carrying the Biden family name" because it is "synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute, and politically powerful."
The filing confirms that the little girl is "estranged" from the Biden family, but suggests the name change would help rectify that.
The lawyer said in his filing in the 16th Circuit Court in Independence County the girl should be known to the world as a "member of the prestigious Biden family."
The Gazette explained the name change request "was one of four filings made in the case that was originally settled in March 2020. The case was reopened in September when Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, filed a motion to have his child support payments adjusted due to "substantial material change" in his "financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income."
Roberts and her daughter are living in Arkansas now.
The Gazette said Hunter Biden met Roberts while she was living in Washington, D.C.
"The child, initially referred to in the case as 'Baby Doe,' was born in August 2018; the paternity suit followed in May 2019, days after Hunter Biden's marriage to a South African filmmaker, the former Melissa Cohen," the report explained.
Her parentage was determined "with near scientific certainty" by DNA testing.
That ruling was from Judge Holly Meyer in a January 2020 order. Eventually the two sides agreed on child support to be paid.
Hunter Biden, who is well-known for his cocaine-induced behavioral binges, actually claimed he had no memory of the "incident" that led to the pregnancy, the report said.
Other filings in the case charge that while Hunter Biden wants his obligations changed, those all were resolved earlier by the court, and further, he is famed for avoiding discovery about his finances by "filing endless and recurrent motions for protective orders," the report said.
Roberts is seeking a list of all of Hunter Biden's residences for the last 10 years, and all his vehicles for the last five years, to "obtain evidence of the Bidens' 'well-established history of a lavish lifestyle,'" the report said.
She's also asked for "relevant" information about a federal investigation into Hunter Biden's tax filings.
