Hunter Biden and his legal team were called out for concealing evidence by an Arkansas judge overseeing his ongoing child support battle with former stripper Lunden Roberts.
The case centers around Hunter Biden’s 4-year-old daughter Navy Joan Roberts, who Hunter and his father, President Joe Biden, still refuse to acknowledge.
During the latest proceedings in the long-running child support fight, Judge Holly Meyer blasted Hunter Biden’s legal team for wrongly concealing details of filings that had already been submitted to the court.
“The ability to redact is somewhat being abused,” the judge said to Hunter’s attorneys, ordering them to refile some of the papers.
Hunter Biden is currently seeking to lower his child support payments on the daughter he has never even met — and was required to turn over documents regarding his financial situation.
In September 2022, the president’s son reopened his paternity case in an effort to decrease the $20,000 that he sends his child’s mother every month. He is alleging that he has experienced a “substantial material change” in his income.
Hunter Biden paid his dad $50,000.00/month in rent and drives a $142k Porsche, yet he "can't" pay child support?
What a disgrace.

However, Roberts’ attorney has countered that claim, noting that Hunter Biden is “living lavishly.”
“Biden claims to be nothing more than a Yale-educated attorney/artist who is somewhat financially destitute and needs his child support adjusted,” Lancaster said. “However, for an artist living on meager means, Mr. Biden is living lavishly.”
“He travels the world on the safest and most comfortable airplane in existence — Air Force One,” the attorney added. “He also has some of the most expensive attorneys on planet Earth.”
On Monday, the judge ordered Hunter Biden to respond to additional written questions about his financial situation — which would include his investments, art sales and other financial transactions. According to Roberts’ attorney Clinton Lancaster, Hunter had only provided “incomplete answers” to these questions — and had not revealed the identities of his art buyers nor the estimated values of each piece.
In response, Hunter Biden’s attorneys claimed that he was not aware of the buyers’ identities as part of an arrangement supposedly designed to ensure that they were unable to “influence” his father.
“He will not know. Someone else may know,” one of the attorneys told Meyer.
However, the judge told Roberts’ attorney that he could “issue a subpoena” to force Hunter’s gallery to identify the buyers and the value of each piece.
“It’s a little incredible that there is no estimate of valuations,” Meyer added.
