Hunter Biden’s paternity lawsuit may require that he reveal the financial details from his position on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
The son of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden is facing a child support lawsuit by a 28-year former stripper who now wants him to come clean on his earnings while he worked at the energy company, according to court records filed Monday, Page Six reported.
Lunden Alexis Roberts and her lawyers are demanding that Biden reveal if he received money from China for foreign or domestic investment purposes and to disclose the amount he was paid between April 2014 and April 2019 when he served on Burisma’s board.
That amount, which could reportedly be as much as $50,000 per month, is redacted in the documents filed in an Arkansas county circuit court Monday.
Last month, Biden filed a request in Arkansas court in an attempt to keep his financial information private as he would endure “undue prejudice, annoyance, embarrassment, and/or oppression,” if the information was disclosed and even “maliciously” used by the media.

Though Biden had denied any relationship with Roberts at first, he filed court papers later saying he was “not contesting paternity” after Roberts sued him with DNA results that showed he is the father of the child. Biden indicated in his court filing that he needed more time to “consult with his accountants.”
Judge Don McSpadden last week expressed his frustration over the lack of transparency by the parties involved and issued a letter requesting an affidavit of financial means spanning five years for both Biden and Roberts.
“I do not want this drug out nor do I want to have to drag out the monies these individuals may have received in any form or fashion,” he wrote in a Dec. 3 letter. “It concerns me that the only information supplied to the court so far concerning employment of either party has been unemployment or under employment.”
Following his break up with his late brother Beau’s widow, Hallie, Hunter Biden was reportedly a frequent patron at a Washington, DC, strip club where Roberts performed under the stage name “Dallas,” according to the New York Post.
In another document that was filed Monday, Biden’s attorney Brent Langdon requested that a judge deny a demand to have Roberts’ more than $11,000 in attorney’s fees and court costs be paid by Biden.
Biden’s former attorneys said they were unexpectedly fired last week, filing a motion to withdraw from his case just ahead of a scheduled hearing in an Arkansas court where Biden was a no-show.
Biden, and his father, became central figures in the ongoing impeachment case against President Trump who is accused of engaging in a quid pro quo with the Ukraine president, House Democrats claim Trump threatened to withhold U.S. military aid to Ukraine if the nation did not launch an investigation into Biden’s business dealings.
The president has repeatedly denied there was any pressure while it was Joe Biden who bragged about withholding funding to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor investigating his son’s company. The Ukrainian president and Ukraine’s foreign minister have also asserted that Trump did not make any demands.
