The former stripper who bore Hunter Biden’s out-of-wedlock child — and who he claims that he has no memory of meeting — was on his consulting firm’s payroll during her pregnancy, text messages retrieved from his laptop reveal.
And the first son made sure she was booted off the company insurance plan months after she gave birth, according to the texts.
The messages, which are contained on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, shed new light on the relationship between him and Lunden Roberts, who gave birth to their daughter Navy Joan Roberts in August of 2018, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
Roberts messaged Biden on July 24 of that year to let him know that their child’s due date was Sept. 8. (“Amoeba DD Sep 8, 2018 All Good,” she wrote.), the Mail reported. The message received no response from Hunter.
Fifteen days later, on Aug. 8, Roberts messaged him again.
“Reached out a few times, it’s clear you don’t want to be reached,” she wrote. “Need to talk to you. If you feel the need to reach out, my line is always open. Hope all is well.”
Again, Biden did not respond. Screenshots taken by the Mail showed that message appeared four times, though it’s not clear whether Roberts actually sent the message four times.
That December, Hunter Biden messaged assistant Katie Dodge asking for information about his firm, Rosemont Seneca.
“And just for clarification who is pay roll paid to now and for past nine months?” he asked, adding in subsequent messages, “So when you took what’s her name off and re directed her income did it also End my insurance.”
“Past nine months has been you, me, Lunden, Hallie, Liz & Erin,” Dodge responded. “But currently only you me & Erin.”
Dodge later reassured Hunter: “No, Lunden’s removal doesn’t jeopardize insurance.”
Roberts slapped Hunter Biden with a paternity suit in May 2019. The suit was settled in March of last year with Biden agreeing to pay an undisclosed monthly sum in child support and health insurance premiums.
In his recently published autobiography, “Beautiful Things,” Hunter claims he initially challenged his paternity of Roberts’ daughter because he had “no recollection” of any sexual encounter with Roberts. He writes that after his 2017 divorce from his first wife Kathleen, he went on “rampages” during which he and the women he met “would satisfy our immediate needs and little else.” During this period, he commenced an affair with his sister-in-law Hallie Biden, the widow of Hunter’s brother Beau.
“I’m not proud of it … ” he writes. “I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for.”
Hunter and Hallie Biden revealed in 2019 that they had broken off their relationship. Hunter is now married to South African model and filmmaker Melissa Cohen and they have a son named Beau. In addition to his daughter with Roberts, Biden has three daughters from his first marriage.
