Hunter Biden cried poverty but still flew to his child-support hearing on a private jet for at least $55K

Fly me a river.




Hunter Biden cried poverty at his Arkansas child-support hearing earlier this month — despite flying to and from the courthouse aboard a luxury private jet owned by his close friend Kevin Morris.


The 2001 Dassault Falcon 50 — formerly owned by country singer Brad Paisely — is registered to Plato LLC, for which Morris is the principal, California business records show.




The $6 million jet took off from Los Angeles on April 30 just after 7 a.m, according to flight records reviewed by The Post.




It flew cross-country to Washington DC where it landed at Dulles Airport.




Within an hour it was back in the air en route to Arkansas, transponder data show.


It landed at Newport Municipal Airport in Jackson County, 34 miles from the Independence County Courthouse in Batesville, where Biden attended the hearing the next morning.




After the hearing it was wheels up around 11:30 a.m for the trip back to DC.




The 7,326-mile round trip likely cost between $55,000 to $117,000 all in — or the value of up to six months in child-support payments to Hunter Biden’s baby mama, aviation experts told The Post.


The First Son is trying to renegotiate child support payments to Lunden Roberts, 32, a one-time stripper and mother of his 4-year-old daughter, Navy Joan.




The Biden family — including President Biden — have repeatedly refused to acknowledge the child’s existence.




Hunter Biden is currently on the hook to Roberts for $20,000 a month and has already paid out $750,000, his attorneys say.




Hunter Biden has argued that he needs to reduce his payments due to a “substantial material change” in his financial situation.


“Why doesn’t Hunter just ask his dad’s donors and patrons to pay his child support instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on his private jets and expensive lawyers?” Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton told The Post.


Hunter Biden is provided with Secret Service protection who almost certainly would have flown with him on the plane.




Reps for the agency did not respond to repeated requests for comment about whether they had helped foot the bill for the flights.




Reps for Hunter Biden and the White House also did not respond to request for comment.




Morris, a high-flying Hollywood entertainment lawyer, famously paid off a $2 million tax debt for Hunter in an effort to take the teeth out of a years-long Department of Justice probe of possible tax evasion and other potential crimes.




Morris’ plane has emerged before in Hunter Biden’s personal affairs.


Flight records show the aircraft landing in or taking off from Fayetteville, Ark. at least nine times between February 2022 and April 2023.




Fayetteville is the home of Edward Prewitt, Hunter Biden’s financial advisor.




Laptop emails show Prewitt had access to several business accounts linked to Hunter Biden.
