Legally incorrect?

Maherjohnson Comedian Bill Maher, best known as the host of the Politically Incorrect television show (and currently host of HBO's Real Time) was hit today with a $9 million breach of contract suit by his "ex-girlfriend," Coco Johnsen. a model and former flight attendant.

Johnsen (with Maher, at left) says that she gave up her 12-year career as a flight attendant at Delta Air Lines after Maher promised to marry her and buy her a home formerly owned by Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.

She began her relationship with Maher in 2003, and says that Maher convinced her to relinquish her career to "devote herself full time to him and his career."  Johnson, who is black, also says that Maher made "insulting, humiliating and degrading racial comments" about her.
