A new development in the child support battle for Hunter Biden’s four-year-old daughter could force Democrat President Joe Biden’s son to expose the identities of the anonymous buyers who bought his “artwork.”
Since his father was sworn into office, Hunter declared himself to be an “artist” and started selling his “art” for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The White House took the unusual step of brokering the deals on behalf of the younger Biden for “security.”
As a result of the taxpayer-funded effort by the White House to handle Hunter’s art deals, the buyers of the artworks were kept anonymous.
The move led to allegations of influence peddling, for obvious reasons.
Meanwhile, among his other legal troubles, Hunter Biden has been hit was various lawsuits over his illegitimate child to a former flame, 31-year-old Lunden Alexis Roberts.
Hunter has already been in court for refusing to pay child support for his daughter Navy Joan.
He fathered the child in 2018 while on a drug-fueled bender and has never met the young girl who lives with her mother in Arkansas.
After crying poverty, Hunter was eventually forced to pay child support.
However, now he is demanding that the payments are lowered.
According to court documents, the president’s son filed a motion to adjust child support on Monday, citing “a substantial material change” in his “financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income.”
Nevertheless, Robert isn’t buying Hunter Biden’s claims and is aware that his art sales likely raked in a small fortune.
The New York Post reports that Clinton Lancaster, whom Roberts retained as an attorney, said in a December 27, 2022 court filing, “The plaintiff asked for detailed information about the defendant’s works of ‘art’ and the purchasers of the same.”
“Even though the defendant has been the subject of articles by the New York Times regarding his ‘art,’ President Biden’s administration has taken measures to shield the White House from the buyers of the defendant’s ‘art,’ and the defendant was seen in New York City as recently as a few months ago showing and selling his ‘art,’ the defendant has refused to provide any information about his ‘art’ or the income derived from it,” Lancaster said.
In response, the court could force Hunter Biden to hand over details of lucrative art deals.
In October, Republican Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) asked US Attorney General Merrick Garland for answers over the art deals.
“Mr. Attorney General, who buys Hunter Biden’s art? Who benefits?” Buck asked.
“What benefits do they receive from the Biden administration?
“The American people want to know.”
As evidenced by the material found on Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell,” the president’s son has had business dealings overseas, including in China and Ukraine.
Those deals implicate Hunter and his father Joe Biden in profiteering and influence peddling.
Roberts conceived their daughter Navy while Hunter Biden was in a relationship with his sister-in-law Hallie Biden – the widow of his dead brother Beau.
Hunter Biden has never met his daughter Navy and initially denied paternity until a DNA test proved he was the father.
After being ordered to pay child support, he asked an Independence County, Arkansas court to reduce what he owed and said it was because of a “substantial material change” affecting the finances in his life.
Biden’s paintings have sold for as much as $500,000, and he sold at least five works for $375,000 total in California in 2021.
His daughter’s mother has petitioned the court to compel Hunter Biden to disclose more detailed information about the income from his “art” and who is buying the pieces.
Hunter Biden has an art dealer through Manhattan-based gallery owner Georges Berges.
Berges has previously promised never to reveal the names of the art purchases.
If compelled by the court, however, Berges may have little choice in the matter.
