Hunter Biden, the son of 2020 presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, has filed an order to keep his financial records private as a paternity suit against him goes forward.
The younger Biden filed the motion in Arkansas on Wednesday, saying that his public profile would cause “undue prejudice, annoyance, embarrassment, and/or oppression” if the records were release publicly.
“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.
Biden was proven to be the father of a child with Lunden Alexis Roberts, who is now seeking child support. The child was born in August 2018 after the couple had a relationship, according to Roberts.
Biden claims he has been unemployed since May 2019 and has “significant debts” from his divorce from wife Kathleen in 2017. It’s possible that his push to keep his financial records private has more to do with money received from Burisma Holdings or another company who may have hired him for his daddy’s position in the government rather than his skills and knowledge of the Ukrainian energy sector.
