Beloved U.S. TV icon Ed McMahon has been hit by more financial woes over the non-payment of bills for prescription drugs.
The former The Tonight Show sidekick, who is fighting to save his home from repossession, has been slapped with a lawsuit from the bosses of a Beverly Hills pharmacy, who claim they have two years of bills that haven't been paid.
Mickey Fine Pharmacy managers claims MCMahon and his wife Pamela agreed to pay the purchase price on the prescriptions, but have only paid $500 (GBP250) of an $8,000 (GBP4,000) bill.
The pharmacy boss is seeking compensation for the medication costs and coverage of legal fees.
MCMahon is also being sued by Citibank for nearly $200,000 (GBP100,000) in debt built up over the last four years.
Last month (Jun08), it was revealed the TV star was $644,000 (GBP322,000) behind on mortgage payments on his Los Angeles home.
