Hunter Biden is trying to lower his child support payments for his four-year-old love child with Lunden Roberts, claiming he’s having financial difficulties.
According to documents obtained by DailyMail.com, the president’s son filed a motion to adjust child support Monday, citing ‘a substantial material change’ in his ‘financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income.’
An insider tells DailyMail.com: ‘Hunter’s going to be raked over the coals on this one.
‘If he thinks Lunden is just going to acquiesce to any claim of dire circumstances he needs to think again. Not being part of your child’s life is one thing – not that Lunden would ever want that – but not supporting her financially as he should is quite another.
‘And where was he living again? Oh yes, a fancy house in Malibu – one of the richest towns in the country.’
The child support order was set in March 2020 and adjusted four months later. It was filed under seal in Independence County, Arkansas, so there’s no knowledge of just how much the payments are.
This isn’t the first time Hunter has claimed he’s cash-strapped.
In a November 2019 filing in the child support case, he claimed, ‘I am unemployed and have had no monthly income since May 2019,’ adding he had ‘significant debts.’
Meanwhile, Hunter just moved out of a $20,000-per-month Malibu home where he lived with his wife Melissa Cohen and their two-year-old son Beau.
And before that, Hunter was living in a $25,000-per-month rented canal-front home in Venice, Los Angeles, with his 24-hour Secret Service protection
Roberts and Hunter conceived Navy Joan – the fourth of his five children – around December 2017 while he was still in a relationship with his brother Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden.
Roberts spent more than a year working in a junior position at his investment firm, Rosemont Seneca.
Even after DNA proved he was the father, Hunter claimed he did not have enough money to pay child support.
Roberts chased Hunter through the courts for 10 months after he claimed that he was too poor to pay child support despite living in a $12,000-per-month Hollywood rental and driving a Porsche at the time.
When an Arkansas judge ordered him to produce financial records he settled out of court.
Roberts won a reported $2.5million settlement from Hunter.
In his memoir, Beautiful Things, Hunter claimed he went on so many ‘rampages’ in the wake of his 2017 divorce from Kathleen Buhle that he couldn’t recall his conquests.
‘It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine – I had no recollection of our encounter,’ the recovering drug addict wrote.
‘That’s how little connection I had with anyone.’
He filed a motion to reset child support Monday, citing ‘a substantial material change’ in his ‘financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income’
Hunter has never met Navy Joan and would not be able to pick her out of a photo lineup, according to filings in their child custody suit.
His dad Joe also has not recognized the child as part of his family – nor has he provided her with the same round-the-clock Secret Service protection offered to other Bidens, DailyMail.com previously revealed.
Roberts instead asked authorities in rural Independence County to step in to keep them both safe from her cage fighter ex-fiancé Princeton Foster, whom she started dating in 2018, about six months after her fling with Hunter ended.
‘I need this order because I am scared of what Princeton might do to me and my daughter … I am also aware he carries a firearm daily,’ Roberts stated in her application for a protection order.
DailyMail.com previously revealed that President Biden has been ‘made aware’ of Roberts’ ordeal and the alleged threat to his granddaughter – who bears a striking resemblance to a young Hunter.
But so far the world’s most powerful man has declined to intervene or even reach out to see if the little girl is okay , according to a close friend of Roberts.

Hunter has since moved out of Malibu home he was renting for $20k-per-month and on to another property, which is sure to be equally as swanky for Hunter, his wife Melissa and their son Beau
DailyMail.com revealed early last year Hunter Biden had moved into this $25,000-per-month rented canal-front home in Venice, Los Angeles, with his 24-hour Secret Service protection
The single mom called cops in May alleging that Foster, 27, punched a dent in her car and slashed the wires to her security cameras after turning up at her Arkansas home in the middle of the night.
She also filed for a protection order, claiming the amateur fighter told her he was ‘going to heaven’ with Navy Joan, referring to the angelic, blond-haired youngster as his daughter despite having no biological link to her.
Roberts gave evidence at a federal courthouse in Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware for several hours in February.
She testified before a federal grand jury investigating Hunter for alleged tax crimes.
