The Blue Collar Comedy Tour member hired the man in 2012 as an assistant for his wife Margo, who was undergoing cancer treatment at the time.

The aide was given a credit card to use for business purposes, and allegedly also gained access to the comedian's personal bank accounts.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ.com, White's financial adviser alerted him to irregularities and revealed his credit card had been used to pay for trips to hotels and nightclubs, as well as for cash withdrawals, clothing purchases, and monthly payments on a car.

The accused man had not commented on the report as WENN went to press.
