Larry King Files for Divorce from Shawn King After 22 Years

By Gary Trock

Larry King has decided to end his marriage to his 7th wife and filed for divorce.

According to court records obtained by The Blast, 85-year-old Larry King filed for divorce Tuesday in L.A. County court against Shawn King.

The famed talk show host has been married 8 times to 7 different women.

In 1997, he married his 7th wife, Shawn Southwick. The nuptials actually went down in King's hospital room as he was preparing to undergo surgery to clear a clogged blood vessel in his heart.

On April 14, 2010, both Larry and Shawn filed for divorce, but later reconciled.


2:12 PM: According to documents, Larry claims he separated from Shawn on June 6, 2019 after 21 years and 9 months of marriage.

He checked the box for "irreconcilable differences," but doesn't mention anything about a prenuptial agreement between the two, nor does he make any requests in the support department.

King was hospitalized back in April after receiving a scheduled heart procedure.

His rep explained, "Before his scheduled procedure, he experienced angina and went to the hospital early to be examined. His doctor successfully performed the angioplasty and inserted stents to reopen the previous bypass from 1987."

King's rep also wanted to be very clear that "contrary to published reports, his doctors say he did not have a heart attack and he did not go into cardiac arrest."


Larry was actually with his two children on Monday, and shared a photo of the two boys with the caption that read, "I'm so proud of my boys."

The former couple has two children, Chance and Cannon, who are both now adults.


Both Larry and Shawn have been wrapped up in allegations of infidelity during their marriage.

Larry was once accused of having an affair with Shawn's sister, Shannon Engemann, but the talk show host denied the allegations.

Meanwhile, Shawn was accused of having an affair with their children's former little league baseball coach, Hector Penate.

Shawn denied the rumors, but Penate went on the record in an interview and claimed he had slept with the talk show host's wife in their marital bed during a rendezvous back in 2007.
