Hunter, 51, offered excruciating details of his car-crash love life in his new autobiography Beautiful Things – including a paternity suit filed by former lover Lunden Roberts that he initially contested.
Hunter, who conceded Lunden’s baby daughter was his after a DNA test, said: ‘The other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type. We would satisfy our immediate needs and little else. 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.’
Hunter shared details of the paternity wrangle in his new autobiography, Beautiful Things, which saw the former drug abuser admit he’d once smoked parmesan cheese after mistaking it for crack cocaine.
Lunden’s lawyer Clint Lancaster hit out at Hunter over the book’s admission, saying the lawsuit had forced the hand of the president’s son.
Lancaster said: ‘He has only taken financial responsibility when the court forced him to do it.’ Hunter his dad Joe and stepmother Jill have never met the little girl, who is now two years-old, and lives with her mom in Arkansas.
Lancaster told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette: ‘He’s not seen his child. He has no relationship with his child, by his own choosing.
‘Mr Biden hasn’t taken responsibility for this child until he parents her. Every child needs loving parents and loving grandparents.
‘This child could stand a relationship with her father. She could stand a relationship with her grandfather.’
The lawyer said Lunden was ‘insulted by Mr Biden’s characterization of her,’ and added that the Hunter’s daughter ‘is the spitting image of her father.’
Hunter now claims to have cleaned himself up with the help of wife Melissa Cohen Biden, who he wed in 2019.
He blames the loss of his mother and baby sister in a 1972 car crash, as well as the 2015 death of his brother Beau from cancer for his descent into addiction.
The twice-married father of five has since named the son he had with Melissa after his late brother.
Hunter’s appointment to the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma sparked allegations of nepotism, amid claims he was poorly-qualified for the well-paid role.
He wrote in his autobiography that the ‘robust compensation’ he received for the role helped fuel his drug binges.
Hunter was also accused of offering access to his dad – who was vice president at the time, and is also being investigated by the US Justice Department over his taxes.
