Larry King Files for Divorce

Aug 20, 2019  •  Post A Comment

TV talk icon Larry King, 85, filed for divorce Tuesday from his wife of 22 years, Shawn Southwick King. TMZ reports that the documents list the couple’s date of separation as June 6.

“Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ … they have been having marital trouble for several years now,” the website reports. “Larry has accused Shawn of infidelity. We’re told that has created tension for a while now, but the breaking point was when Larry was in the hospital a couple months ago.”

King reportedly underwent an angioplasty in April, and his health crisis apparently played a role in the couple’s latest marital problems.

“Sources say Shawn presented him with legal documents that would have given her certain rights to their property that would adversely affect the couple’s 2 sons,” TMZ reports. “We’re told they felt she was trying to screw them out of their inheritance.”

Family members reportedly encouraged Larry King to end the marriage, which is his seventh. King reportedly filed the documents Tuesday in L.A. Superior Court.

The couple’s two sons, Cannon and Chance, are 19 and 20 years old, respectively.


  1. The only thing shocking is it last as long as it has.

  2. What’s more shocking is that HE lasted as long as he has. I didn’t know he’s 85.

  3. Here, to be honest, a lot is shocking. And the age of Larry himself, and the fact that his wife is 22, and the fact that this is already the seventh marriage. I almost lost my mind because of the first divorce. And I don’t even want to think about a second marriage. And then seven! Although I was still lucky, we did everything quickly with the help of this service https://cheapdivorcearizona.com/arizona-quick-divorce/. And, every time he decided everything through lawyers. This is some kind of madness!
