Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is locked in a legal tussle with an ex-stripper over financial support for a baby born out of wedlock that he’s responsible for.
The younger Biden’s finances have been a point of interest given his controversial involvement with the Ukrainian gas company Burismo Holdings, and now he has a reason to attempt to seal all financial records in the paternity case.
And he has done just that, filing a request in Arkansas this week, Daily Mail reported.
“Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the parties involved in this matter, it is in the interest of justice and necessary for a Protective Order to be in place,’ Biden attorney Dustin McDaniel said, according to Daily Mail.
Biden’s legal team claimed that any disclosure would cause their client “undue prejudice, annoyance, embarrassment, and/or oppression,” citing fears that the media would “maliciously” use the personal information.
“The likelihood that [Biden’s] private records will be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should not be tolerated by the court,” the filing reads.
It was recently revealed that Biden was the father of a child born to Lunden Roberts — he met the 28-year-old woman at the Mpire Gentlemen’s Club in Washington D.C., where she worked as a stripper.
