In the midst of all his troubles, Hunter Biden sure knows who to turn to – his controversial ‘sugar brother’ lawyer Kevin Morris.
The First Son was spotted visiting his friend on Tuesday as possible Federal charges hang over his head and he becomes embroiled in the discovery of his father’s classified documents mess.
Morris became known as Hunter’s ‘sugar brother’ after he reportedly loaned him $2.8 million in 2021 to pay off a tax bill just as a federal investigation into his financial affairs was launched and a prison term loomed.
And he also waged a campaign to try to discredit information from the laptop computer that Biden abandoned at a Delaware repair shop, the contents of which have proved an extreme embarrassment to the Biden family.
Hollywood lawyer, Morris, 59, is known for his hard-driving tactics.
Hunter Biden was seen paying a visit to his ‘sugar brother’ attorney Kevin Morris at his home in Malibu on Tuesday
Morris – a Hollywood attorney – became known as Hunter’s ‘sugar brother’ last May after reportedly paying his $2.8million overdue tax bill and helping fund Hunter’s lavish lifestyle, including covering rent and other expenses and assisting in selling his artwork
As DailyMail.com exclusively reported last October, he sent ‘threatening’ texts to members of the right-wing transparency group Marco Polo – which landed him with an ethics complaint.
He called one member of the group ‘a f***ing moron,’ adding in other texts ‘I’m gonna take all your money,’ ‘I know where you live’, and ‘You’re going to enjoy being a buttboy for 20 years dude. Lube up.’
Morris sent the crude texts to a Marco Polo investigator, who had been messaging the lawyer posing as a potential ally for Hunter’s defense case.
Morris is also a published author, having released a collection of short stories entitled ‘White Man’s Problems’ in 2015, followed by a novel entitled ‘All Joe Knight’ in 2016
Morris also allegedly lied to get on to the film set of My Son Hunter, a movie designed to show Biden in the worst possible light with tales of his drug use, partying and corrupt business deals.
He flew on a private plane to Serbia where the movie was being filmed claiming he wanted to interview the producers for a documentary he claimed to be making about Biden’s corruption.
At the time, producer Phelim McAleer said: ‘Now that I know of his representation of Hunter Biden, his questions while they were filming suddenly make a lot of sense. I thought he was just making a documentary but now it appears he was deceptively spying for his client Hunter Biden.’
Morris and two colleagues we were given full access to the set for several days taping hours of footage for the supposed documentary.
The filmmakers claim that Morris was particularly interested in the contents of the movie – including what sources they had for their information and what they knew about how Hunter’s laptop came into the hands of media.
Hunter’s visit comes amid mounting questions over his father’s classified documents and the ongoing investigation into his own tax filings and business dealings
The investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes began when his father was still serving as vice president during the Obama administration. Joe is now facing
Morris made his name as attorney for South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
He has also represented a whole list of Hollywood heavyweights including Ellen DeGeneres, Scarlett Johansson, Matthew McConaughey and Chris Rock.
Hunter Biden, 52, is facing mounting challenges since Republicans gained control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
They have threatened to launch investigations in a bid to tie President Joe Biden to his son’s activities.
Respected Washington DC attorney Abbe Lowell, who represented Jared Kushner during the FBI director Robert Mueller’s probe into his father-in-law Donald Trump will work for Hunter on those matters.
David Weiss, U.S. Attorney for Delaware is also investigating Hunter’s dealings and is said to be zeroing in on the $30,000 Hunter had claimed as business deductions on his tax filings.
He could also face charges over the purchase of a handgun in 2018, when he declared on the application that he did not use drugs.
Photos found on the laptop showed him strung out around that time and he admitted that he used crack cocaine in his memoir Beautiful Things, released in 2021.
Biden could also need legal advice in his bid to prevent Lunden Roberts, a former stripper and mother of his love child, Navy, changing the four-year-old girl’s surname to Biden.
Just this month he filed papers in an Arkansas court asking a judge to deny Roberts’s request, saying the name change would rob the child of a ‘peaceful existence.’

A furious-sounding Morris responded: ‘You’re going to enjoy being a buttboy for 20 years dude. Lube up’
Actor Laurence Fox is set to play Hunter Biden alongside John James, who will play Joe, in the upcoming film My Son Hunter, which was filmed in Serbia and is in post production. Morris was reported to have flown to Serbia to spy on the movie set last year
None of the Biden family – including Hunter – are believed ever to have met Navy, who Hunter initially insisted was not his, until a court-ordered DNA test proved otherwise.
Roberts’s lawyer Clinton Lancaster said she wanted to change her daughter’s name as the Biden name is ‘synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute and politically powerful.’
Biden and Roberts are also still battling over child support. Hunter wants his payments reduced claiming his financial circumstance had undergone ‘a substantial material change.’
But Roberts said he has ‘well-established history of a lavish lifestyle’ and is trying to ‘stifle discovery into his financial affairs while simultaneously reducing his child support obligation on the claim that he now earns less income.’
Biden, who has taken up painting since getting sober and remarrying, is also under a cloud surrounding the amount he receives for his artwork.
Last month his art dealer, New York gallery owner George Berges, said his art was priced between $55,000 and $225,000 per piece.
This has led to ethics concerns as the buyers typically remain anonymous.
Fears have been raised that the buyers could be foreigners trying to influence presidential policies.
