Ghost of Merv Sues Ed

9/29/2008 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's just sad. Merv Griffin's company is suing Ed McMahon over a personal loan.
Ed McMahon: Click to view!
Apparently Ed has been having money troubles for a while now. Back in 2005, he needed money and his pal Merv Griffin fronted him $100,000. The first installment was due September, 2005, but so far nothing has been repaid.

The Griffin Group is suing both Ed and his wife, Pamela.

It's the latest in a string of lawsuits against Ed. His publicist, Howard Bragman, just gave us the best response EVER: "Anybody interested in a great house in The Summit?"

The Griffin group is just getting in line as the rest of his debtors. The mortgage company will get their money first!

This wasn't a $20 loan. It was a hundred grand and he didn't pay back a cent of it. I'd sue him too. Never loan money to a friend.

What's sad about it? Ed and spouse seem to have no clue how to manage their money.

This is just sad. Ed McMahon is practically an institution. I can't believe some of the rich Hollywood comics whose careers he helped start along with Johnny Carson haven't stepped in to help him. Roseann Barr, Rosie O'Donnell, Jerry Seinfield, Howie Mandell...etc, etc, etc.

What about Joann Carson..Johnny left her more money than God. I can't believe if Johnny was alive he would stand back and not do something to help Ed. Ryan Seacrest...do something!! You seem like a pretty nice guy!!

A note to Ed MacMahon: a loan is just that a loan YOU MUST PAY IT BACK. I'm sure $100,000.00 was just a drop in the bucket for Mr. "free spending" MacMahon, he needs to come out of the clouds and pay his debts like everyone else!!

one more thing...Merv was good enough friend to Ed to loan him the money. If it was due in 2005 and Merv didn't die until 2007...that shows to me that Merv wasn't worried about it. Heck, $100.000.00 to merv Griffin is like $1.00 to you and me...his estate makes more money than that every single episode of Wheel of Fortune.

So Ed doesn't know how to handle money...we don't know how much money he has been making since Johnny Carson went off the air. But we do know Ed isn't out drinking and doing drugs every night and wasting $160,000.00 a month on entertainment costs...like dear little Britney. Give the poor old guy a break.

Add him to the list of stupid American celebrities who should have had it made but was too stupid and decided to spend it all instead.

Excess, excess, excess... Hollywood, Wall Street, NY's fashion week. All the fabulous people being fabulous.
And we idolize them, imitate them and buy all the stuff they say we HAVE to have. Everyone needs to wake up.

Why doesn't Ed just file bankruptcy? I bet he could discharge a whole lot of his debt.

Moron #9---make sure you direct your anger towards B. Hussein Obama, too. He took more campaign money from the Freddie/Fannie crooks than any other politician.

Friggin idiot. BTW--I hate you, too.

Polosi was STUPID to rub salt into the wound minutes before a vote...and the Republicans should have beaten her down AFTER the vote..instead of saying NO to this vote. HUGE mistake by both. Fricken morons!!!!! THANKS ALOT and btw...why r uneducated people crying to their congressman to say NO to the vote..and the dumb congressment r just kissing to get re-elected..Dumb & Dumber. Sorry for straying..Credit is drying up fast and if these congressman don't clear their brains and get their act together PRONTO, millions of people will NOT be getting paycheques within the next 30 days....and tht is just the beginning of the end for a long time.
