Television icon Larry King has filed for a divorce from his seventh wife just a few months after he suffered a heart attack. They were married for 22 years and have two sons together.
Larry was married to Shawn Southwick King for 22 years and the pair share two sons.
According to TMZ, the 85-year-old suspected his wife was being unfaithful, forcing him to give her the boot eventually.
The TV host once tried to call it quits with Shawn in 2010 but the two made their way back to each other after the turmoil.
In 2016, the couple had to publicly address infidelity rumours that rocked their union yet again.
Sources intimate to TMZ claim trouble in paradise brewed when Larry was hospitalised back in April this year.
Briefly.co.za learnt that his wife apparently tried to kick their sons out of their inheritance after presenting Larry with papers that granted her rights over the boys’ property.
The couple’s kids then approached their dad and pleaded with him to end the 22-year marriage after feeling betrayed by their mum.
It is suspected Larry heeded his children’s plight and went ahead and filed for a divorce.
Of course, social media users had a thing or two to say about the shocking split:
