Hunter Biden’s child-sup-
port agreement with a former
stripper was finalized by a
judge Thursday, a day before a
public hearing in the case was
set to go forward, according to
court papers.
The settlement’s finaliza-
tion between Biden and
Lunden Alexis Roberts,
with whom he shares a 17-
month-old love child,
comes just before he was
set to show up in a Little
Rock, Ark., courtroom and
as his dad Joe Biden’s presi-
dential campaign has
looked unstoppable.
The son of the former vice
president reached an agree-
ment with Roberts after a
judge denied his bid to post-
pone his deposition and
hearing this week because he
said it would be “unsafe” to
travel during the coronavirus
Hunter, 50, will have to pay
undisclosed monthly child
support and must provide
health-care coverage for the
baby, according to the agree-
ment signed by the judge.
His lawyer, Brent Langdon,
said, “The judge has approved
the final order and the case
has been resolved.”
Last month, Hunter — who
is expecting his fifth child,
this one with his 32-year-old
wife, Melissa Cohen Biden —
asked that his deposition be
postponed until April, so it
wouldn’t be a distraction
during the Democratic de-
At the time, Langdon said it
would “only ignite media at-
tention and awareness” with
the intent to “annoy, embar-
rass, oppress” him.
Roberts’ lawyer did not im-
mediately return a request
for comment.

He’s fitting right into the fam-
ily business.
Michael Gandolfini, son of
late “Sopranos” star James Gan-
dolfini, was dishing out punches
just like Dad while filming a
fight scene Thursday in his role
as a young Tony Soprano for the
prequel film “The Many Saints
of Newark.”
The 20-year-old actor was

photographed brawling on set in
The Bronx, sporting shaggy hair
and a retro denim coat with a
shearling collar over a mustard
Michael can be seen stepping
out of a phone booth and — in
a very Soprano-esque move —
shoving a sandwich in an-
other character’s
face before

The heavily anticipated drama
is due out on Sept. 25.
Michael opened up in an Es-
quire feature last
summer on how
“difficult” it
was to step
into the shoes
of his father,
who died of a
heart attack in
2013 while
the two

James was stricken shortly
after sharing a meal with Mich-
ael, who has spoken proudly of
building on his pop’s iconic role.
“Working hard to make you
proud, I know you are, but I’ll
never stop working at it. Love
you dad,” Michael posted online
in June as he marked the sixth
anniversary of his father’s death.
