Ed McMahon in ICU -- Pneumonia, Cancer

2/27/2009 9:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

ed mcmahon: exclusiveUPDATE: We've just learned Ed is in the ICU and his condition is "extremely serious." As one person close to him put it -- "It's not great, to say the least."

We're told Ed McMahon has been hospitalized for nearly a month with pneumonia, bone cancer and other medical problems.

McMahon's condition is "serious" which is pretty obvious given his age -- 85 -- and the fact he has pneumonia.

We contacted Ed's rep, Howard Bragman, who confirmed the hospitalization and added, "He's not at Cedars-Sinai" -- a dig on the hospital Ed is suing for alleged malpractice and elder abuse.

Wonder if he has health insurance or did he go in as a charity case. Taxpayers will be paying for him like they will be for OCTOMOM

GOD Bless Ed, I grew up with him and Johnny. era's all must end, and for who asked if he was rich, where the hell have you been, he was losing his house and Trump had to jump in to save the day, hardly think he's rich. Maybe women like him for him, it has happened in the past, ya know. People falling in love for reasons other than cashola.
