NEW YORK – A New York lawsuit claims former "Tonight Show" sidekick Ed McMahon owes lawyers more than $275,000 for handling his daughter's divorce.
The suit claims McMahon and his wife hired Hartman & Craven and the Sarcone Law Firm to represent his daughter, Linda Schmerge. It was filed Wednesday in Manhattan, where she lives.
McMahon's attorney hasn't returned a telephone message seeking comment.
McMahon worked with Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show" for decades and was noted for his "Heeeeere's Johnny" introduction.
He revealed last month he was fighting foreclosure after falling $644,000 behind on mortgage payments on his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He also faces a lawsuit by Citibank, which says it's trying to recoup nearly $200,000 it loaned him and his wife.
