A spokesperson for Larry King has confirmed that King’s wife, Shawn, 50, is recovering from apparently taking too much prescription medicine on May 28, the Associated Press reports.
The incident happened at Shawn King’s home in Provo, Utah, the AP says. Her father was with her, and when he could not rouse her from her bed, he called 911.
According to the AP article, "Officers who responded to the call found several prescription bottles, including Ambien and anti-anxiety medication, that had been filled within 10 days but were empty, according to a police report. It also said there was a handwritten note that indicated she had taken the pills intentionally. Another note expressed Shawn King’s desire to be buried in Utah, police said."
The article also said that "The Kings filed for divorce in April, but Larry King released a statement through his spokesman, Howard Rubenstein, saying ‘reports that we have fought are absolutely false.’ "
Reportedly the couple had changed their minds about divorcing.
