Hunter Biden and the mother of his estranged daughter have reportedly settled out of court and agreed to terms that would see Biden's child support payments drop by 75%, as reported by the
Biden and his former girlfriend Lunden Roberts submitted an agreed order to the Independence County Circuit Court that allowed the Biden's to avoid public scrutiny and the combing of the first son's financial details. Biden had previously asked a judge to
reduce his child support payments
due to a "substantial material change" to his financial circumstances, despite previously having made millions of dollars in overseas business deals.
Details were reported by multiple outlets, including the
New York Post
, which stated that Biden's $20,000 monthly child support payments would be slashed to $5,000 per month after a deposition in Little Rock.
Roberts’ lawyer, Clint Lancaster, declined to confirm the reduction of the monthly payments to the New York Post.
Roberts made a surprise appearance at the deposition, where she was questioned for approximately seven hours, the Daily Mail revealed. Roberts had also reportedly petitioned circuit court Judge Holly Meyer to jail Biden for six months for being dishonest about his finances.
Biden had previously claimed that he was "unemployed and had no monthly income" while living in a $12,000-per-month rental in Hollywood.
It was also reported that Roberts, 32, dropped the demand to have their daughter, Navy, change her last name to Biden.
The Biden legal team had previously rejected the request, citing that they were trying to save the young girl from the expectations of the family legacy and wanted to give her a “peaceful existence” without the Biden last name.
Roberts is a former stripper, according to
, and worked for Biden at his Washington, D.C., investment firm after they allegedly met at a Washington strip club in 2017. Their daughter was subsequently born in August 2018.
Biden's firm, Rosemont Seneca, had its page publicly
removed from Wikipedia
in 2022 after an editor stated that the firm was only being discussed in connection with its founders. The firm was founded by Biden and Christopher Heinz, John Kerry's stepson and son of Theresa Heinz Kerry.
The editor added that "keeping it around" risked the page becoming a source for Hunter Biden conspiracy theories.
