The DNA test confirmed that Hunter Biden is the father of a child in Arkansas, whom he refused to possess, says the court filing first filed by Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
The document, filed on Wednesday in Independence County, Arkansas, on behalf of the child's mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts, said the DNA test showed that Biden was the father of the child "with scientific certainty."
The documentation said that Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, "should not question the DNA test results or the testing process." He didn't comment on this in public.
In May, Roberts, who said her and Hunter Biden's relationship resulted in the birth of a child in August 2018, filed an application for paternity and child support and a payment for childcare, according to the Daily Beast.
Biden's story is complicated. In 2017, he ended a divorce with Kathleen Biden, his wife for over 20 years, after she accused him of spending money on drugs and strip clubs.
That same year, he began dating Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother Beau, and mother of his niece and nephew. Six reported in April that they had recently split up, which means that the child with whom he was associated was born during their relationship.
To add to the complicated situation, he married Melissa Cohen at an unexpected wedding in May this year.
Wednesday's report delves into the presidential campaign of Joe Biden, saying that "he is considered by some to be the person who will most likely win his party's nomination and challenge President Trump to vote in 2020."
Members of the Biden family were found to be protected by US secret services, suggesting that the child also needs protection.
