Larry King has filed for divorce from his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King, after nearly 22 years of marriage
Larry King has filed for divorce from Shawn Southwick, his seventh wife, after nearly 22 years of marriage. It has been reported in US media that the 85-year-old former TV talk show host had filed the divorce at Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences. The date given for his separation from 59-year-old Shawn was June 6, 2019.
The couple had survived a rocky relationship in which there were allegations of infidelity and an original divorce petition was filed in 2010
Embarrassed and anguished Larry
The couple had two sons together – Chance, 20, and Cannon, 19 – after marrying on September 5, 1997. It has been reported that Shawn claimed her marriage to King was over way before but it took three years for this to became a reality.
In August 2016, the couple put on a united front to deny any allegations of cheating when speaking to Home & Family.
Divorce for the second time
This is the second time that King has filed for divorce against his wife, while the first time was in 2010.
It was alleged at the time that Shawn had an affair with Hector Penate, who was one of their son’s baseball coaches. The affair was denied and King decided to withdraw the divorce petition.
Larry King has married seven times, to six different women.
