Mcmahon Fights To Save His Home
Late U.S. TV legend JOHNNY CARSON's former THE TONIGHT SHOW sidekick ED MCMAHON is fighting to save his home from repossession.
The comedian is facing foreclosure on his multi-million dollar Beverly Hills, California mansion after he fell behind with his mortgage repayments.
MCMahon reportedly owes $600,000 (GBP300,000) in overdue payments and a repossession company has filed a default notice on the property - meaning he could now lose the house altogether.
The 85-year-old has been out of work for 18 months after breaking his neck in a fall. He has been attempting to sell the $6.25 million (GBP3.1 million) home for two years, but the weak property market in the state has meant no buyers have come forward.
Alex Davis, the agent hired by MCMahon to sell the property, has also blamed the house's location on the lack of interest from buyers - as its close proximity to Britney Spears' home has been putting people off.
He says, "When we were trying to sell the house one time, there were about 100 paparazzi there."
