KEY POINTS

  • Lunden Roberts had previously filed a paternity suite against Hunter Biden 
  • Hunter and Roberts settled out of court after a paternity test was conducted
  • The information on Roberts is contained in an email Biden allegedly wrote: Report

The woman that Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, fathered a child with was the basketball mentor to one of his daughters and former President Barack Obama’s daughter Sasha, a news report has said.

Hunter, 51, previously had an affair with Lunden Roberts, 29, with who he fathered girl in August 2018. Roberts in May, 2019, filed a paternity suit against the younger Biden. Hunter initially denied the couple had ever had sex but after a DNA test established "with near scientific certainty" that he was the child's father, the couple settled out of court

Little was previously known about Roberts until an email found in a laptop that Hunter allegedly left in a repair shop in Delaware described her as a “basketball mentor” to both his daughter Maisy and Sasha, Obama’s second daughter. 

The email was a reply to Cecilia Browning, the manager of a Georgetown building that housed the offices of Hunter's consulting firm Rosemont Seneca. Browning had warned Hunter and other people against giving visitors access to the building through a side entrance during the after-hours, the Daily Mail reported. 

The building also housed the offices of Sweden and Iceland, and security concerns were probably behind Browning's email. 

Hunter replied to Browning’s warning three days later, the report said, claiming he let security know that Roberts was visiting the building. IBT could not independently verify the contents of the email. 

“I have never knowingly attempted to hide visitors or break any rules. What do i[sic] have to hide Cecelia. There is a camera in every hallway every 10 feet,” his reply read. “I had phoned ahead to let security know that my youngest daughter’s basketball mentor she worked out with Maisy and Sasha Obama when they played in rec league together. Maisy, my daughter continues ton [sic] pursue a NCAA Div. One team and Lunden continues to help,” Daily Mail quoted Hunter as saying in the email. 

In the same email, Hunter also included a short bio of the basketball mentor, which listed her as a former player for the Arkansas State women’s basketball team for the 2011 to 2012 season. He also claimed she was a “three-time NCAA All-American” and a top ranker at George Washington University’s National CSIS Masters Program.

“If you need any more information you can find it yourself,” he said at the end of his reply. 

Roberts was reportedly employed in Rosemont Seneca while she was pregnant but was later removed from the company’s insurance plan some time in 2018, the report said citing other emails found on the same laptop. 

Last December, reports had said that Hunter requested keys from a property manager for his "office mates," which included his father Joe and an "emissary" from a Chinese business partner. However, it is not clear if the senior Biden ever visited the office.
