Hunter Biden's Baby Mother Demands He Admits How Much Ukraine Company Paid Him
Lunden Roberts is demanding the court forces Biden to reveal true earnings from Burisma
In the child support case against Hunter Biden, the mother of his baby has demanded that he admits to how much he was paid by the notoriously corrupt Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings, according to reports.
Lunden Roberts has filed a child support case against former Vice President Joe Biden's son and is pressuring the court to force Hunter to reveal how much he has earned from his work for foreign companies.
Roberts is demanding that Hunter Biden admits he was employed as a board member for Burisma in Ukraine and that he was compensated with tens of thousands of dollars a month.
The actual figure that Roberts asks Biden to confirm is redacted in the seven-page document filed this week.
It has been widely reported, however, that Hunter Biden was earning $83,000 a month for his role at the Ukrainian energy company during the time his father was in office as vice president and oversaw overseas operations in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden was hired as a member of the gas and oil company's board, despite having zero experience in the industry or in the job role.
Roberts' demands have been revealed in leaked court documents that were obtained by the Daily Mail.
Roberts has also asked that Biden admits that he "or an entity owned, controlled or under your direction or supervision" received money from a Chinese person or entity for foreign and domestic investment purposes.
The document contains 47 requests for admission by Biden, most of which are redacted in some way, including six related to his income taxes for the years from 2013 to 2018.
In other leaked documents, Biden has objected to paying for his baby mama's legal bill.
The 49-year-old filed papers on Monday in Independence County, Arkansas, seeking for a judge to deny Lunden Roberts' request to have her $11,000 attorney bill footed by Biden.
Roberts, 28, filed a paternity suit against Biden in May, claiming he was the father of her 16-month-old child after the two had met while she worked at a strip club in Washington D.C.
The most recent filing comes after a judge demanded both Biden and Roberts hand over five years of financial records - meaning Biden will have to reveal the amount he made while controversially sitting on the board of a Ukrainian oil company.
Originally Judge Don McSpadden, who is presiding over the court in Batesville, Arkansas, had only asked for three years' records.

But last Tuesday said he needs five years of records before making a decision on how much the former vice-president's son should pay to support his child.
McSpadden sent out a blunt letter to attorneys in the case — including the one that Biden fired minutes before a hearing last Monday.
He gave both Biden, 49, and Roberts, 28, just 10 days to come up with their financial details - meaning they should submit their records before Friday.
Roberts who lives in Southside, Arkansas, had already submitted one set, but McSpadden wants more.
"I have viewed Ms. Roberts affidavit of financial means online and saw that she is employed at a family business probably for a salary of less than minimum wage," the judge wrote.

The court in Batesville, Arkansas, is expected to decide all matters in the case at the next hearing, expected for January 7, McSpadden told Roberts's lawyer Clint Lancaster and former Arkansas attorney general Dustin McDaniel, who had been representing Biden.
The judge made it clear he wants the case over quickly.
"I do not want to have this [drag] out nor do I want to have to drag out the monies these individuals may have received in any form or fashion," he wrote.
"I anticipate paternity as well as custody, support and visitation being established at our next hearing."
Biden served on the board of the Ukrainian oil company Burisma from April 2014 to April 2019 — almost exactly the time that McSpadden wants the information.
He is said to have been paid as much as $50,000 to $83,000 a month, even though he had no experience in the energy industry.
His appointment to the board has been at the heart of the impeachment inquiry that House Democrats have launched into President Donald Trump.
House Democrats accuse Trump of pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to find dirt on Biden in a bid to harm his father's presidential ambitions.
Democrats have produced no evidence to support this allegation, however.
ABC News asked Biden whether the $50,000 a month figure was accurate.
But Biden answered: "Look, I'm a private citizen.
"One thing that I don't have to do is sit here and open my kimono as it relates to how much money I made or make or did or didn't."
Hunter did not turn up for Monday's hearing in Batesville, although Roberts sat in the front row of the spectators' gallery with her father, intently listening to the proceedings.
Biden was finally revealed to be the father of Roberts' child following a DNA test — something Roberts had been urging him to take since May, following his repeated denials.
Roberts is demanding he pay her $11,000 legal fees and child support for their baby, who she argues could be eligible for Secret Service protection as the grandchild of former Vice President Joe Biden.

She is also asking the court to seal case records to protect the child's identity for security reasons for both the baby and her family, citing presidential candidate Biden's political status.
In previous filings, Roberts said her child was born in August last year.
She referred to the infant as "Baby Doe" and did not say whether it is a boy or girl.
Roberts' legal team argues: "Baby Doe's paternal grandfather, Joe Biden, is seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America.
"He is considered by some to be the person most likely to win his party's nomination and challenge President Trump on the ballot in 2020.
"The members of the Biden family either are protected or eligible to be protected by the United States Secret Service as a direct result of Joe Biden's political status.
"Baby Doe's paternity could put the child and those close to the child at risk of harm for the same reasons the Biden family is protected by the United States Secret Service."
Roberts filed a petition for paternity and support in May, saying Biden was the biological father of her baby, asking the court to establish paternity while seeking child support, health insurance, and legal fees.
Biden had previously denied all allegations and demanded the suit be tossed.
