Loud-mouthed TV host Bill Maher has been slapped with a $9 million palimony suit by an ex-lover who says the comedian reneged on his promise to marry her, have his children and set her up for life in a Beverly Hills mansion.
"This is a completely frivolous lawsuit filled with false allegations that is part of a pattern by Ms. Johnson to seek retribution since the end of their short relationship," said Maher's lawyer, Adam Streisand.

Johnson, who says she dated Maher for 17 months...
I hope she wins.
I don't know. I'd say for an ugly man with an enormous beak, Mahar could do no better.
Bill Maher's Lawyer is Adam Streisand. I wonder if he is related to Barbara.
I wondered the same thing and did a search, but couldn't find anything.
Are you certain there is not a typo in the article -- -- was that supposed to be a 'he' not her!!
I think Bill and Danny Bonaduce share similar tastes in, uh, women.
Pay up Billy boy! LOL
The loving couple.
I actually find him witty and funny at times, but after seeing that picture, where the heck is his brain? Some cocaine induced relationship?
Whew!! It's too early in the morning for this. Jolted me awake for sure - Frightening, semi-transvestitw look!
I thought he was gay.
Okay. That's it. He IS gay.
He's always seen with bimbos. I always assumed that they were just hookers he hired, and not very attractive ones at that.
I know someone who used to appear on Maher's old ABC show. Their description: "Bill's idea of 'family values' is doing coke with hookers at Sky Bar."
I actually find him witty and funny at times
I find him to be a perpetually profane prick.
How did you find him after he called the President an "ASSHOLE"?
It is called humor, I guess you don't watch Leno or Letterman?
Your choice to live a sterile life.
Hang out with sluts, be treated like a slut.....I'm looking at her and thinking "Maher's in this situation and had the nerve to call Bush and those who voted for him stupid???"
Maher is a comedian? Who knew?
Probably the only time Maher could say he dumped a bunny. Couldn't happen to a better guy IMHO.
She is most likely a Gold-digger, But since it's Maher....
I hope she gets every cent he has!!!!!!!!
Yes, the Kerry crowd really thought it was funny.
It's like I've said before - you always show up on the fun threads :)
It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
The Salacious Posting List version 2.0 Ping. If you want on the on or off the list let me know.
Oh, I SO want on that bad boy.
Yeh pay up .....LOL LOL
I really hope she gets a few million.
He acts so gay.
Larry King has him on all the time.
If she (or he) really was with Maher, he/she/it DESERVES the 9 mil............. I wouldn't go near him for twice that amount!
As many times as I here that, it never gets old.
You are added.
You get what you pay for.
Please add me to the Salacious Posting List. Thanks.
YOU may call it humor, but I find it a disgusting insult not befitting the man who has finally returned dignity to the office of President after clinton spent 8 years basically desecrating the office by his vile acts.
No I don't watch leno or letterman, I can read.
I don't know what you mean by leading a sterile life, but I guess the implication is there that you prefer a heaping helping of profanity and lewd and crude subject matter in your choice of 'humor'. I remember the days when comedians actually were funny, not simply shameless and foul-mouthed.
Try watching a Peter Sellers movie; you won't find profanity being used. It is only a crutch used by talentless comedians to appeal to those in the audience who typically have a vacuous stare in response to genuine wit and humor.
Here you go guy:
There, that ought to have you rolling on the floor for an hour or so.
Now I've got to get back to my 'sterile' life.
I'll leave you to the den of filth you choose to call a life. You and howard stern can contemplate losing for another 4 years.
Oh, here's another good one:
Whooooo Boy! I bet that would make Bill Maher proud.
Did you know that's exactly what Maher did, loud and long, at the beginning of some guest appearance on the Tonight Show or was it Letterman? He's an uncivilized disgusting creep.
I voted for Bush, even drove my 75 year old mother to the polling place to make sure she voted.
Obviously you don't understand what I am talking about.
Hatred isn't becoming on anyone.
And I don't listen to Stern, he in fact is raunchy, but I don't hate him.
Never mind, Saturday Night Live just came on, another show you probably don't watch.
What's with the heavy grey makeup?
It that to cover the 5 o'clock shadow...
That babe doesn't look at all natural, beautiful or sane.
Perfect for the talentless idiot Maher..
He is a shallow, insecure jerk with a quick mouth. I don't think this woman's claim has any merit, though. Suing someone for breaking up and not "marrying her and buying her a house"? Yeah, RIGHT.
