The 85-year-old radio personality has filed a divorce against his seventh wife, actress Shawn King putting end to a 22-year-old marriage. Larry King has married 7 women 8 times. He married and divorced Alene Akins twice. They share two grown-up kids. Chance, 20, and Cannon, 19.
The couple got engaged in a hospital room, three days before King had surgery to clear a clogged blood vessel. The couple previously split and both of them filed a divorce twice in 2010 stating they have “Irreconcilable differences,”.
His son writing on his father’s health issues, “In life, you never know what can happen at any moment.”
He wrote on Instagram, “This summer my Dad faced what looked like an insurmountable amount of health issues. When being told on multiple occasions that by several doctors that there was little hope, all I could think about was how there was nothing I wouldn’t do to get more time with him,” he said. His writing was quite emotional. He said his dad fought against all these and got out this because of his INDOMITABLE spirit. “I will be forever grateful for my Dad and the amazing man and example he is to me. Our love for each other is endless and everlasting” he added.
He continued, “Difficult times can diminish you, define you, or DEVELOP you. Although this experience has been tough, it has been and continues to be a blessing”. He said his dad is getting better and going back to work, watching Dodgers games and having dinners at the Palm. “Watch out world the man is back and better than ever!” the kid added.
