Joe Biden’s son Hunter is facing a paternity test just weeks after he eloped

Joe Biden had two sons. Beau Biden passed away in 2015, and Hunter Biden is the younger son. Hunter is currently 49 years old. By all accounts, Beau was “the good one,” the public servant, the veteran, the family man. Two years after Beau passed away, Hunter began dating Beau’s widow Hallie. It was messy because Hunter was still technically married, although it did seem like Hunter and his wife agreed that they had separated and fallen apart before his thing with Hallie started up. The thing was, Hunter’s now ex-wife insisted that she ordered Hunter out of their home because he was so messy, and she accused him of serial drug abuse, alcohol abuse and chronic infidelity. All in all, very messy for the widow of the sainted Beau. As I said, we knew about all of this in 2017. Then last week, this curious story came out:

Hunter Biden is a married man — again. The second son of 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden got hitched in a sudden secret wedding last month — just 10 days after the two met, sources told The Post on Wednesday. Biden tied the knot on May 16 with a South African beauty named Melissa Cohen — in what is her second marriage.

“They met and fell hard and got hitched,” a source said. The blond stunner, who herself is a divorcée, now lives in Los Angeles and originally hails from Johannesburg, her dad, Lee, said Wednesday. “She seems very happy. I’ve only spoken to Hunter briefly,” Lee Cohen told The Post, adding that he’d like to meet Hunter soon.

News of Hunter’s nuptials comes after his April split from Hallie Biden — his late brother Beau’s widow — reported exclusively by Page Six. The unlikely couple linked up in 2017 following Beau’s death from brain cancer in May 2015 at age 46. Beau’s passing proved traumatic for the Biden family — the former Vice President said it was one of the reasons why he decided against running for president in 2016.

So, Hunter and Hallie were over in April, and then two months later, he runs off and marries a South African model he’s only known for 10 days? YIKES. And then, on top of all that, this just happened too:

An Arkansas woman claims Hunter Biden is the father of her child — and she’s suing to prove it. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed a petition for paternity and child support against Joe Biden’s lawyer son, saying she gave birth to his kid, “Baby Doe,” in August 2018, according to court papers. The two-page suit was filed in Independence County, Arkansas, on May 28 — nearly two weeks after Hunter tied the knot with a South African woman named Melissa Cohen.

Roberts wants a court to establish that the 49-year-old father of three is her baby’s biological dad. She is also seeking child support and for him to provide health insurance for the now-10-month-old infant. All out-of-pocket expenses would be split between the two parents, the filing said. The petition does not say how Roberts and Hunter met or how long they were together. But the birth of the child came while Hunter was in a relationship with Hallie Biden, his late brother Beau’s wife. The former in-laws started dating in 2017 and split in April, Page Six exclusively reported.

To sum up… Hunter’s first wife divorced him because he was a drugged-out serial philander and alcoholic, then he takes up with his brother’s widow, then he cheats on her and fathers a baby with some Arkansan lady, and then he and his brother’s widow break up and then he marries some South African woman he’s only known for ten days? I feel like this is what “bottoming out” probably looks like.

    That’s all I got.

      Right? That’s a whole lot of messiness right there. Hunter is the definition of the “family screwup.” Damn.

    Doesn’t sound like bottoming out, sounds like Miranda Lambert life goals.

  3. Diana says:

    So messy!!! 🤣🤣🤣 Holy drama!!!

    • Bella Bella says:

      Put your hand over one side of this dude’s face. And then put your hand over the other. I once saw a news piece about how one side is your public side (if looking at the face, the right side) and the other (the left side) your private self. His private self looks super creepy.

  4. Ana says:

    How very Palin.

  5. Louise says:

    I love “to sum up” because I was reading thinking eh? trying to follow it ha ha

  6. SamC says:

    Hunter is a hot mess is so many ways. Kicked out of the National Guard for failing a drug test, sketchy dealings with the Ukraine and China which is going to probably cause Joe Biden some issues (and of course Trump will exploit without any sense of irony in his own family’s sketchy dealings.), popped up in the Ashley Madison records, and so on.

    • Diana says:

      Ugh… what were those dealings? That is a bigger threat to Biden’s campaign than the Miranda Lambert lifestyle choices

    • Mel M says:

      Total mess but in a side by side comparison is it any messier then the dump family and everything they have done over the years or just the past two years? I think Hunter is garbage and whatever the China and Ukraine deal is should be looked at but I hate how this is making headlines and none of the crap that the Cheeto and his family pull on the daily even gets a second look anymore. They aren’t held to any kind of standard anymore while everyone else needs to be on their toes. Why does dump get to exploited this and no one can use anything against him and his family?

    • OG Cleo says:

      I’m not trying to be pedantic, but it’s just Ukraine, no “the.” I know it seems silly, but it’s a very loaded phrase to include “the.”

      • Mel M says:

        I know that and that’s why I didn’t write “the” before Ukraine I put the before China but I’m also not saying it about China, I’m talking about “the” dealings with the two countries.

      • OG Cleo says:

        @Mel M
        I wasn’t referring to you, I was responding to SamC. Sorry for the mix-up.

  7. PhD Gossip says:

    Melissa Cohen seems quite sketchy. Divorced and unemployed – getting married within ten days of meeting decades older Hunter. Hooker vibe.

    • Kittycat says:

      Hunter is sketchy

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      He has a history with hookers, when his ex-wife eventually had enough she said he spent the family money on drugs and hookers. He has always always been the messy one and that fact that he got involved with his later brothers wife says all you need to know about both of them.

      • Wisca says:

        Jill & Joe supported that messiness in a statement that ignored Hunter’s ex wife & mother of their grandchildren. The Obamas, specifically Michelle, made a point of publicly embracing Kathleen, Hunter’s ex-wife & mother of one of Sasha Obama’s best friends. I bet the Obamas were disgusted by the emotional & financial abuse Kathleen & her children faced from Hunter after a more than two decade marriage. Hunter Biden is a corrupt, morally bankrupt, addict & hooker & stripper aficionado.

      • Darla says:

        WOW. I did not know a lot of this stuff. There is something about Biden I never liked. I don’t mean his politics which I mainly find mediocre to awful. I mean there’s just something about HIM I do not like. I wouldn’t want to talk to him at a party basically. And now that Jill is out yapping? I realized I kinda feel the same about her. So this is really interesting stuff to me.

    • Bunny says:

      Women can make profoundly bad, dumb, damaging decisions without being hookers.

  8. Cee says:

    He is what we would call trash. Garbage bin on fire.

  9. Lisa says:

    He is so messy.

    • Olenna says:

      Agree and, damn, those drugs and effing around have done a number on him. He looks old enough to be Joe’s younger brother.

  10. olive says:

    i bet everyone around them feels like the wrong one died.

  11. Lara K says:

    Im guessing he had a LOT of issues with his bigger “better” brother, which would only have gotten worse after Beau passed.
    The dating his brother’s widow thing was a true d0uche move though.

  12. Jb says:

    Still can’t believe the widow took up with her husbands brother!!! Yes grief takes a toll but damn girl did really need to keep it in the family and make it so weird for your kids and their cousins!!!! Anyways what did she expect that he’d be faithful to her?? I’m sure the ex wife is somewhere laughing and shrugging…YOU knew he was a dog and still rolled around with him.

    • KL says:

      Love how you can read an entire article on a man’s repeated history of messes and go “you know who’s really jumping out at me? that bereaved widow, what a stupid bitch.”

      Have you ever lost a spouse to a prolonged and devastating illness? It doesn’t just “take a toll,” it’s a legitimately traumatic experience that can take years to recover from. How can you read about a man with a history of predatory behavior and not wonder if the widow was possibly a victim of the same? Damn, have a heart.

      • Jb says:

        Dear KL,

        Yes I have experienced loss and it was horrible. Yes I’m married and I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose my husband but as others have noted here, no, my immediate reaction wouldn’t be to start sleeping with my brother in law who was still married and had children. YOU can call it grief and justify it however makes you ok with it but I call it selfish and horrible to put not only her children but her nieces/nephews through. I have a heart and soul and THAT would stop me from finding comfort in my husbands brothers bed. I never said he wasn’t equally responsible for his actions But to paint her as some child is also ridiculous. If this seems like acceptable behavior I pray for your Sister-in-law.

  13. Anothersarah says:

    When I saw “Baby Doe” I thought, she named the baby Doe Biden?? 🤣

  14. FHMom says:

    He sounds awful. I also think he and Beau’s widow hooked up sooner than 2017.. I may be remembering incorrectly, but I thought that another reason Biden didnt run In 2016 was because the Widow/Hunter affair was happening, and Biden didnt want to put his family through that kind of scrutiny after Beau died.

  15. TheOriginalMia says:

    He’s a mess. Completely disrespected his brother’s memory by sleeping with his widow. And yes, I think it started when Beau was sick. His ex-wife was mistreated and disrespected by the Biden clan when they supported him over her. Trump will definitely send out the dogs if Biden gets the nomination. Especially if the National Enquirer is still owned by his buddy.

  16. Brenda says:

    Makes me wonder if his new wife has something on him

  17. Fluffy Princess says:

    Wowwwwwie! Messy, messy, messy!

  18. Robinda says:

    I think voters are used to politicians having train wreck family members, it seems like they all have one who won’t, or can’t, stay out of the tabloids. Joe’s bigger problem is the China deal. That one’s got legs and eventually the other Dem candidates are either going to question Joe’s role in it or just start fighting over second place.

  19. OG Cleo says:

    He feels like a sadder, even messier Gob Bluth.

  20. Molly says:

    I really wish kids weren’t involved, because I LOVE messy drama like this.

  21. Liz version 700 says:

    You need a diagram to keep up with his girlfriends and wives. Agreed he is a hot mess. I hope he gets a wake up call from this, but I doubt it. My evil side wants him to cross paths with Miranda Lambert just for a summer of epic gossip. But for his family it would be better if he could gain some insight. Either way I doubt his time in the spotlight is ending with his current life choices 🤦🏻‍♀️

  22. Maria says:

    Omg how does this guy not have a reality show??!!

  23. SJR says:

    Holy cats! This guy is taking Creep to a new level.
    Ugh. WTH sleeping with your dying brothers wife? No. No. No. NO!

    Man, the daytime soap writers should steal this guys life story…I would watch the Y & R to see them pull this off.

    Agree that Joe Biden must have closed down any idea of his running for POTUS in 2016, if Joe knew about this, he would have realized that running and having this crapola hit the fan = end of any public life for him in any office.

    Btw, every single person thinking of running for POTUS, if you are over the age of 70, please do not run. Biden, Bernie, Trump ALL of ya are too old. Accept it. Move on.

  24. kerwood says:

    I get the feeling that Beau was the best of them, which compounds the tragedy of his early death.

    Tragic death seems to be an ongoing theme with the Biden family. The loss of his wife and daughter probably still haunts Joe, although Dr. Jill Biden seems like a wonderful woman; he’s lucky to be married to her.

    Hunter just seems like such a mess. It’s possible that Beau kept him on track (more or less) and with Beau’s death he just careened out of control. Sadly, there are children involved.

    The death of Beau Biden probably changed American history. Joe Biden should have been the Democratic nominee in 2016. It wasn’t just that he had family commitments (he didn’t do a very good job with that). He was flat out robbed. Hilary Clinton seemed to think that she was entitled to be the nominee even though she had already lost once. Biden would have cleaned Trump’s clock. He wouldn’t have hesitated to ‘go low’ which is what needed to be done. His time has passed and he needs to accept that.

  25. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Really…the baby mama’s name is “Lunden” and it’s spelled that ridiculous way? That alone annoys me. I bet Joe is very pleased that his son’s messiness is coming out front and center right now.
