Hunter Biden has been sued in Arkansas by a 28-year-old woman who claims he is the father of her 10-month-old baby
An Arkansas woman has filed a lawsuit demanding child support from Hunter Biden, claiming he is the father of her 10-month-old baby.
Lunden Alex Roberts, 28, filed the lawsuit in Batesville, Alabama, last month. It names Biden, 49, as the father of a baby she gave birth to in August 2018, when he was still in a relationship with his late brother Beau’s widow Hallie.
Roberts would have become pregnant in the fall of 2017, around seven months after Hunter and Hallie confirmed their controversial romance.
Her lawsuit gives no detail of how she allegedly met the presidential candidate’s son and it offers no insight into their apparent relationship other than that they were ‘in one’.
The petition, which DailyMail.com obtained on Thursday, is only two pages long.
It gives no details about the infant, referring only to them as ‘Baby Doe’.
Lunden’s attorney declined to comment on the case.
‘She really values her privacy. This is a parenting and child support issue between her and Mr. Biden.
‘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,” Lancaster added,’ attorney Clint Lancaster said.
He added that they had been in touch with Biden’s attorney to settle the issue privately but that that had been ‘unsuccessful’.
‘We have been in contact with Hunter Biden’s attorney.
‘We have attempted to work with Hunter and his attorney to settle this issue but that has not been successful.
‘We are attempting to serve Mr. Biden,’ he said.
At the time the woman became pregnant, Hunter was in a relationship with his late brother Beau’s widow Hallie (shown together in August 2017, several months before he is alleged to have impregnated Lunden)

Biden, who made headlines for marrying a South African woman in May after knowing her for just a month, has not commented.
He could not be reached at his company, Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners, on Thursday morning and multiple messages left on voicemails for the many cell phone numbers he is attached to online went unanswered.
The scandal-prone father-of-three was married from 1993 until 2015 when he split with his wife Kathleen.
In court papers, Kathleen accused him of squandering their money on drugs and prostitutes.
They separated formally five months after the death of his brother Beau, the adored former Attorney General of Delaware.
He died as a result of brain cancer.
Biden married 32-year-old Melissa Cohen in May this year, a month after splitting from Hallie

Throughout his treatment, Hunter and his wife Hallie became close.
Friends say they relied on one another for support while going to doctors appointments and helping the family see through the tragedy.
In March 2017, nearly two years after Beau’s death and six months after Kathleen and Hunter’s formal separation, Hallie and Hunter confirmed they were dating.
Joe Biden and his wife Jill gave the new couple their support, saying they were happy they had found each other in the midst of the sadness since Beau’s death.
In April this year, Hallie and Hunter split and the famous family were tight-lipped as to why.
In May, it was revealed that Hunter had married Melissa Cohen, 32, after just one month of knowing one another.
She had been living with a boyfriend until April this year.
