Hunter Biden, son of the US President, is set to face off against his baby mama, Lunden Roberts, in an Arkansas court as he seeks to cut child support payments to their 4-year-old daughter, Navy Joan. This may be the first time in his life that he is unable to avoid the consequences of his actions.
Hunter’s lawyers have not settled with Roberts, which means he may have to reveal his financial secrets in court. Recently uncovered documents show that Hunter off-loaded his 10% stake in Chinese equity firm BHR to his friend Kevin Morris, who paid his $2.8 million IRS debt. Hunter’s firm Skaneateles LLC, which held the BHR share, is controlled by Morris. Roberts’ lawyers are likely to question Hunter about the amount he received for the BHR stake, which has been estimated to be worth between $420,000 and $20 million.
In 2013, Hunter received his cut in the CCP-backed fund a few days after flying to Beijing on Air Force One with his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, who met with Hunter’s Chinese partner during the trip. By 2019, BHR had $2.5 billion in funds under management but struggled with poor investments.
Hunter’s abandoned laptop and its financial records are expected to play a significant role in the case. When asked if the laptop belongs to his client, Hunter’s attorney Brent Langdon could not provide a clear answer. The judge is unlikely to allow such evasiveness to continue.
