TMZ has learned that Johnny Carson's Malibu estate, which had an asking price of $42 million, has been sold!

The late "Tonight Show" host's home was purchased for an undisclosed amount by Sidney Kimmel, Chairman of Jones Apparel and producer of recent Hollywood films like "Breach," "Alpha Dog," and "United 93."

Johnny's good friend, comedian Don Rickles, helped broker the deal between Kimmel and Carson's widow, Alexis. On the market since last July, the ultra-modern home comes with a guesthouse, guardhouse, tennis court, tennis pavilion and "exquisite park-like grounds." Johnny died at age 79 in January, 2005.
