Hunter Biden was pictured leisurely strolling through L.A. with his pregnant wife this week amid his bitter paternity battle with a former stripper over their lovechild.
Biden and his South African wife Melissa Cohen married in May this year 10 days after meeting one another. She is pregnant with his fifth child.
Separately, he is being sued in Arkansas by former stripper Lunden Roberts, 28, who says he has not supported her financially since she gave birth to their child in August 2018.
In explosive court documents, she claims Biden is a deadbeat father and that he has also been involved in illegal businesses in the Ukraine – claims he denies. Biden has been hiding out for weeks amid growing criticism from Republicans including the president of his alleged Ukraine ties.
They stem back to when his father, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, was the Vice President.
During his outing with Melissa this week, the younger Biden seemed unperturbed by the two public scandals. He walked with his arm around her through The Grove, a shopping and movie complex in L.A.

At times the 49-year-old stopped to admire his new wife and her burgeoning bump.
Biden has three daughters from his first wife Kathleen – Naomi, Finnegan and Maisy. The two couple separated after 23 years of marriage, with their divorce finalized in 2017.
However, before they were officially divorced, Biden began dating his brother Beau’s widow Hallie after he died from brain cancer in 2015.
The two were together for two years before splitting.
Weeks later, it was announced Biden had married Melissa, 10 days after they met in an impromptu wedding ceremony.
The 49-year-old seemed protective over his new wife as they made their way to their vehicle. He departed without saying anything

Roberts, in her paternity lawsuit, is demanding full custody of their child who she claims Biden could not ‘identify out of a line-up’ because he has spent no time with it. The gender of the child is being kept secret.
The 28-year-old said Biden is a ‘stranger’ to their toddler, as she also filed a motion seeking the court to find Biden in contempt for not handing over his relevant financial records for the past five years.
Also on Monday, private-eye firm, D&A Investigations filed papers in support of Roberts’ case, claiming it had been investigating Biden since August 2016 and alleged he is the subject of multiple criminal investigations.
The firm is headed by Dominic Casey, who worked on Casey Anthony’s defense team in her daughter’s murder case, DailyMail.com can disclose.
According to its website, D&A ‘is a Confidential Private Investigative Agency to the Royals. We service clients, and provide them with continued Identity Protection, throughout the British Isles, Europe and the United States.’
Wearing a blue jacket, jeans, brown boots and a grey t-shirt with sunglasses, Biden was casual for the post-Christmas outing
Biden has spoken out only to insist that he had no nefarious business dealings while his father was the Vice President, but he has not personally addressed the lawsuit with Roberts

Also on its site, it lists its active investigations and reported findings, focusing on Hillary Clinton, Jeffrey Epstein, Democrat National Committee and Ukraine fraud.
Casey also claims that Biden and John Kerry’s stepson Christopher Heinz are involved in a $150 million counterfeiting scheme in Ukraine.
But the judge in the case took just six and a half hours to toss the claims out, saying they had not been filed properly.
Biden’s lawyer Brent Langdon called Casey’s attempt to get involved ‘a scheme by a non-party simply to make scandalous allegations in the pending suit to gain some quick media attention,’ and asked for it to be stricken from the record. He asked Judge McSpadden to award Biden costs against Casey.
Casey, who is known for pursuing right-wing conspiracy theories, inserted himself into the court case in Independence County, Arkansas, where ex-stripper Lunden Roberts, 28, is suing Joe Biden’s son, claiming he fathered her 16-month-old baby.
Biden stopped disputing that he is the father of Roberts’s child after taking a DNA test. The name and even the sex of the child have not been revealed.
Judge Don McSpadden has ordered Biden, 49, to provide his financial details so paternity payments can be set at a hearing on January 7.
At the time Lunden became pregnant, Hunter was in a relationship with his late brother Beau’s widow Hallie (shown together in August 2017, left, several months before he is alleged to have impregnated Lunden). Hunter and his first wife Kathleen (right) formally separated in October 2015. She claimed in court records afterwards that he spent their money on prostitutes and drugs
