Larry King is fed up with his seventh wife. The 85-year-old talk show host has filed for divorce from Shawn Southwick King at the court in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ reports, this is not the first time Larry wants to divorce Shawn. He also filed for divorce in 2010, but in the end, he did not continue and the two made up for it.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, which first reported news of the divorce, Larry filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. He cited irreconcilable differences, and the date of separation is listed as June 6, 2019.
But Larry and Shawn denied any reports of cheating in an interview with Home & Family in August 2016.
“You said an interesting word, ‘rumor.’ I’ve been in the business — next May, it’ll be 60 years — and I’ve dealt with rumors a long time,” he said. “Interviewed people involved with rumors. Rumors are what they are — they’re rumors. And I tell you the truth, I don’t pay any attention to them.”
“Last week, there was a rumor going around about Larry and a speech he made in Kiev. This week, I’m the latest pinup girl. You just have to develop a shell around yourself and not get hard on the inside, and stick together,” Shawn stressed.
Larry and Shawn have been married for 22 years and have two adult sons. If King continues the divorce, it will be his eighth.
The talk show host has been married eight times to seven different women and has five children. He married and divorced Alene Akins twice.
He has overcome several serious health issues in recent years, including lung cancer for two years ago
