The Carol Burnett Show legend Tim Conway's daughter is trying to gain conservatorship over him in a battle with his current wife, The Blast has reported.

The comedian, 84, is wheelchair-bound and suffering from dementia, according to his daughter Kelly in court documents.

Conway's daughter is asking the court to control of his medical care because she alleges his current wife, Charlene Fusco, is trying to move him out the facility he is in.

The Blast obtained legal docs which say Kelly has asked a court to appoint her the conservator of her father's person so she can handle his medical treatments.

Kelly contends that Fusco is "planning to move him out of the excellent skilled nursing facility he is currently at."

She claims the new facility will not give Conway access to "registered nurses at all times and his 24-hour caregiver and speech therapist (to help with swallowing)."

Sadly, Kelly says Conway is "almost entirely unresponsive" and is suffering from dementia.

She is asking the court to grant the conservatorship so she can properly administer medications for his care and treatment.

Conway was known for his zany skits with Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, and the other cast members of the beloved 1970s The Carol Burnett Show. He kept his co-stars in stitches as Mr. Tudball and The Oldest Man.

The comic genius, who also starred as Dorf, had six kids with his first wife and married second wife Fusco in in 1984.
