In a recent revelation that has generated substantial buzz, Hollywood attorney Kevin Morris, recognized for representing the comedy giants behind “South Park” and the musical, “The Book of Mormon,” is reportedly stepping in to cover significant portions of Hunter Biden’s spiraling legal fees. As Hunter’s bills are alleged to have exceeded a staggering $10 million since 2018, Morris’s intervention signifies a critical development in the unfolding saga.
This isn’t Morris’s first act of assistance for Hunter. Previously, major outlets like The New York Post and The New York Times had identified him as the benevolent third party who settled a $2 million chunk of Hunter Biden’s outstanding federal taxes. This act of charity raises questions about the nature and depth of their association.

Hunter Biden’s ongoing legal challenges are multi-faceted, encompassing a DOJ investigation into his tax affairs, firearms possession issues, and scrutiny by the House Oversight Committee on his foreign business operations. To add to the mix, Hunter is embroiled in lawsuits against former Trump affiliates Rudy Guiliani and Garrett Ziegler, linked to the highly publicized distribution of contents from his abandoned laptop.
Morris’s counsel to Hunter has extended beyond just financial support. Based on a CNN report, he recommended the involvement of high-profile attorney Abbe Lowell to spearhead Hunter’s defense. Lowell subsequently voiced concerns over Republican House investigators and took a defensive stance against the IRS whistleblowers who’ve shed light on the Hunter Biden case’s alleged obstructions.
Amid these complexities, an internal IRS memo unveiled recently by the House Ways and Means Committee featured a note of gratitude from James Biden, Hunter’s uncle and business partner. He expressed his family’s appreciation for Morris’s continued support, emphasizing the significance of his financial contributions.
However, the relationship between Morris and Hunter Biden might not be a recent development. Delving into the past, IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley highlighted Morris’s payments in a 2021 memo, noting possible “campaign finance criminal violations” and potential preferential treatment given to Hunter Biden by some DOJ officials. Shapley’s concerns were later voiced during testimonies and substantiated by the release of IRS memos.
A key revelation from Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO) also steered the spotlight back to Morris during the impeachment inquiry hearing of President Joe Biden. The focus was on Morris’s financial support, emphasizing its potential implications on the larger political landscape.
Recent interactions between Hunter Biden and Morris, as reported by the Daily Mail, further cement their ongoing relationship. An extended five-hour meeting at Morris’s Los Angeles residence and the presence of Axios reporter Alex Thompson, known for his deep ties in the Biden universe, continues to fuel speculations.
Despite Hunter Biden’s mounting legal bills, anticipated support from President Joe Biden’s loyalists has been conspicuously absent. This has undoubtedly created a pressing financial predicament for Hunter, as one insider said to CNN, “Nobody will help him financially.”
While the younger Biden’s legal woes are growing, his financial salvation, at least for now, is anchored in the support of his Hollywood ally, Kevin Morris. As the investigations and legal processes move forward, many will be watching closely to understand the dynamics of this relationship and its implications for the Biden family’s political narrative.
