In an unexpected twist, Hunter Biden has come to a resolution in his child support case with Lunden Alexis Roberts, who is the mother of one of his children. The settlement, which was filed in court, brings an end to a long-standing paternity dispute involving their 4-year-old daughter. It’s worth noting, however, that President Biden and the first lady have chosen not to acknowledge the child as their seventh grandchild.
Here are the key details of the settlement:
1. Artwork Instead of Financial Support
According to court records, as part of the agreement, Hunter Biden will provide his daughter with some of his paintings. These artworks, which Hunter took up as part of his recovery from addiction, will be given to the child, who can choose to either sell them or keep them for herself. The court documents specify that the paintings should come in various sizes, with a minimum size of 24×24.
2. Financial Payments and College Education Fund
While the exact amount of financial support Hunter Biden will provide to Roberts remains undisclosed, the court document states that monthly payments will commence on July 1, 2023, and continue until the child turns 18, gets married, or passes away. Additionally, within the next five years, Biden and Roberts will discuss the possibility of establishing a college education fund for their daughter.
3. Controversy Surrounding the Last Name
Interestingly, Roberts had initially filed a counterclaim to change the child’s last name to “Biden.” However, court records now reveal that she has withdrawn that request.
This settlement marks the conclusion of a complex and widely-publicized case that began with a paternity lawsuit in 2019. The court confirmed through a DNA test that Hunter Biden is indeed the biological father of the child. While the financial details of the settlement remain undisclosed, it appears that Hunter Biden’s paintings will serve as a means of support for his daughter.
Hunter Biden’s personal life has frequently made headlines, including his previous marriage, struggles with substance abuse, and involvement with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company. The settlement brings some closure to the child support case, although the child will not carry the Biden surname.
