Mcmahon Sued By Tv Legend Griffin's Company
Former The Tonight Show star ED MCMAHON has one more lawsuit to add to his already packed court calendar - he allegedly owes late U.S. TV host MERV GRIFFIN's company $100,000 (GBP54,000).
The Griffin Group Inc., founded by the late TV mogul, reportedly loaned the beloved star the sum in 2005 in a suit filed in Los Angeles on Thursday (25Sep08).
The company are seeking the full amount to be repaid, plus interest and legal costs.
It is yet another financial blow to the 85-year-old who is currently fighting to save his home from repossession after falling behind with mortgage repayments and is being sued for $275,000 (GBP137,500) for owed fees relating to his daughter's divorce, as well as being chased for $250,000 (GBP125,000) by a loan company dating from February 2007.
