Hunter Biden, President Biden’s notoriously troubled son awaits the results of a Delaware grand jury’s investigation into his personal finances, while a big-shot Hollywood lawyer reportedly paid off his delinquent taxes, which reportedly amounted to more than $2 million.
An entertainment attorney and novelist who earned a fortune representing the co-creators of “South Park” and won a Tony Award as the co-producer of “The Book of Mormon,” Kevin Morris, footed Hunter Biden’s overdue taxes totaling over $2 million — more than twice what was previously reported.
Morris has also been funding the 52-year-old’s lifestyle in Los Angeles, including his rent and living expenses, the source said. So it seems that’s the reason why Hunter Biden’s friends call him his latest “sugar brother,’ according to reports.
According to the source, the attorney has also been advising the president’s son on how to structure his art sales.
After Hunter announced he was under investigation for defrauding the Internal Revenue Service, he took out a loan to settle his significant 2021 tax bill.
His up-to-date tax bill could make it more difficult for prosecutors to convict Hunter Biden and hinder their ability to win a lengthy sentence if he was convicted.
Paying an overdue balance wouldn’t affect a fraud case because the evasion still occurred, tax prosecutors would typically argue, but a judge and jury may be more sympathetic toward someone who eventually paid their bill.
Morris’s firm Morris Yorn Barnes Levine in Los Angeles, of which he is a founding member, has represented A-list Hollywood celebrities such as Matthew McConaughey, Ellen DeGeneres, Scarlett Johansson, Liam Hemsworth and Chris Rock, but Morris does not work anymore at the firm.
