Hunter Biden doesn't REMEMBER meeting ex-stripper who he fathered a child with during addiction struggle
HUNTER Biden has admitted he had no "recollection" of an encounter with an ex-stripper whose kid he fathered.
The 51-year-old met the woman while he was going through "more than four years of active addiction", Hunter reveals in his book.
Writing in his memoir, "Beautiful Things", which will hit bookstores tomorrow, President Biden’s son describes years of drug and alcohol addiction plus the numerous sexual encounters he had with women.
Hunter referred to the ex-stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts and her child as he explained his dearth of meaningful romantic relationships for most of his adult life.
He met Roberts when she was working in a DC strip club.
He said: "I'm not proud of it. 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.
"That's how little connection I had with anyone. I was a mess, but a mess I've taken responsibility for."
But the fact Biden was the father of this child was more than just a claim by the mom.
Independence County, Ark., Circuit Judge Holly Meyer issued an order in January 2020 establishing Hunter had fathered the woman's child.

The order said that DNA tests made that fact clear.
"[T]he results of the DNA tests indicate with near scientific certainty that the defendant is the biological father of the child in this case," the order said.
The memoir also reveals how Hunter convinced dad Joe to support his affair with brother Beau’s widow because otherwise it "would seem wrong".
Joe was persuaded to give public approval to the romance in 2017 for the sake of his grandchildren.
Hunter — who was still married to his estranged wife Kathleen at the time — struck up a relationship with sister-in-law Hallie after Beau died of cancer in May 2015.
In the book he says his "star-crossed coupling" with his brother's widow started because he wanted to help her children.
And he said says were "incredibly lucky” that their family supported the unusual liaison.
At the time, Joe Biden had recently left the White House after two terms as Barack Obama's vice president.
"‘Dad,’ I told him, ‘if people find out, but they think you’re not approving of this, it makes it seem wrong’," Hunter wrote.
Hunter said he told his father his grandchildren would suffer if he did not make a positive statement about the affair.
"‘The kids have to know there’s nothing wrong with this, and the one person who can tell them that is you,'" Hunter pleaded.
Biden agreed to put out a statement saying: “We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness.
"They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them."
Hunter and Hallie later split, and Hunter wrote: "I was madly trying to hold on to a slice of my brother, and I think Hallie was doing the same."
