Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, has a ton to complain about these days and new court papers show he is furious.
Papers submitted in his paternity case he bemoaned the fact that his financial records were going to be “open to the world’s media.”
He also said that he would not be available for a court appearance on Monday, the day before Christmas Eve, The Daily Mail reported.
Biden had denied fathering stripper Lunden Roberts 18-month old son but a DNA test proved that he was the dad.
The 28-year-old Roberts is fighting for child support from Biden, 49 and had demanded the details of his financial records.
What is frightening for him, and for his dad, is that she wants to details of the cash he made in the Ukraine.
Biden has been trying to keep the case under wraps but an Independence County, Arkansas judge ruled on Thursday to unseal Biden’s filing from last week, saying he didn’t consider it to contain confidential information.
It reveals Biden’s legal team had tried to use Biden’s famous dad Joe to get the deposition sealed, arguing that information that came from his deposition scheduled for December 23 could ‘unreasonably annoy, embarrass or oppress’ Hunter – and his family.
His lawyers went a step further and asked the judge to quash the deposition, saying by handing over an affidavit of his financial means should provide Roberts with ‘all relevant information for any argument of temporary child support.’
On Wednesday, Roberts accused Biden of refusing to hand over his financial records and demanded him for him to turn over all documents pertaining to his accounts from the past five years.
Biden has fought against Roberts attorneys’ discovery questions including the state he lives in and his relationship with Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
“It should, by now, be abundantly clear to the Court that the defendant is not going to answer or provide any of his discoverable financial information unless the Court forces him to do so,” her attorneys said. “The defendant has provided no support for this child for over a year.
“The Court should not let the defendant continue to avoid his natural and legal duty to support his child by failing to provide basic information about his income, finances and lifestyle.
“This Court should compel the defendant to answer the interrogatories and requests for production documents in time for the January 7, 2020 hearing in this case,” they said.
The case is placing a strain on Biden’s new marriage, an alleged friend of the couple said in an interview to The Daily Mail.
“She’s in love with Hunter and of course they’re thrilled, but the pain and stress they’re going through every day is cause for real concern,” the friend said.
“There is constant hatred directed towards them from Trump supporters and the President himself.
“People are attacking her, she’s not running for office, her husband’s dad is, all she wants to do is keep her unborn child safe.’
“And Melissa is also not making a noise about being a new mom because she is respectful of the other woman’s child and her mother.
“‘Luckily she’s a very strong woman and she will get through this with Hunter because they have a love which is strong,” the alleged friend said.
