Hunter Biden’s bid to delay his deposition in his child support case has been flat out rejected by a judge, who ordered him to be in Arkansas in two weeks, according to new court papers filed on Wednesday.

Biden was hit with a paternity suit last May by Lunden Roberts, 28, who claimed he was the father of their 18-month-old child, after the two met at a strip club that she worked at in Washington D.C. 

Last month, the Independence County court ruled Biden was indeed the father, but a permanent child support arrangement still needs to be set so a deposition was scheduled for March 5, as well as a pretrial hearing for March 13. 

The 50-year-old requested on Tuesday that his deposition to be pushed back, with his legal team claiming he wouldn’t be available until after April 1, as it emerged Biden has taken up painting as a hobby to stay ‘sane’. 

That did not sit well with Judge Holly Meyer, who ripped into Biden during a conference call with his lawyers on Wednesday, saying: ‘Unless his hair is on fire, he needs to be in Arkansas and he needs to be in a deposition.’

She also scoffed at Biden’s limited availability, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. She asked: ‘My question to you is, why could your client not be available until after April 1?

‘All the information I have is that he’s unemployed.’ 

A piece that ran in The New York Times on Friday, reveals Biden has taken up painting as a hobby, telling the paper it’s ‘literally keeping me sane’, adding: ‘For years I wouldn’t call myself an artist. Now I feel comfortable saying it.’ 

He said he viewed painting as a form of therapy, admitting he had been addicted to crack cocaine for four years.

He added: ‘I want to protect this [art studio space]. The one thing I have left is my art. It’s the one thing they can’t take away from me or conflate with anything else.’ 

Roberts’ legal team now wants to know if Biden is making money from his art.  

Judge Meyer allowed for the deposition to be pushed back by a few days, stating he needed to turn up in Arkansas on either March 11 or March 12.

Biden has been laying low in Los Angeles with his new wife Melissa Cohen, who is expecting their first child together, DailyMail.com first revealed last year.
