The third time is not the charm for Ed McMahon.

The former Tonight Show sidekick was hit with his third debt-related lawsuit of the summer today, this one filed by a SoCal lending firm that says McMahon owes more than $275,000 on a 2006 loan.

Westmoore Lending of Huntington Beach claims McMahon and his wife, Pamela, defaulted on the loan early last year.

A spokesman for the 85-year-old TV icon said Monday that he hadn't seen the suit yet.

But McMahon's camp has seen the other two complaints leveled at him recently, including a $275,168 You-Owe-Me from a lawyer McMahon hired to work on his daughter's divorce and an attempt by Citibank to recoup a nearly $200,000 loan.

McMahon revealed in June that he was facing foreclousre on his Beverly Hills home after falling behind on mortgage-loan payments. He said he hadn't been able to work since breaking his neck in a fall last year.

Getting tired of being on the defensive, apparently, McMahon filed a negligence suit last month against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he had three surgeries to repair his injuries, and the billionaire owner of the L.A. home where he fell.
