Television host Larry King has filed for divorce from his wife of 13 years, Shawn Southwick, a new report says.

King cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as cause for the rift, a sentiment that Southwick echoed in response papers. The pair share two sons, Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9.


Southwick, a former actress, is now a part-time country singer. TMZ says she’s claiming their family home in Beverly Hills as property separate from the marriage. King is requesting joint custody of the boys.

‘It’s a very sad day in Larry’s life and he hopes the divorce will be amicable,’ said King’s attorney Susan Carter.

Southwick is King’s seventh wife, but it’s King’s eighth marriage because he wed and divorced the same woman (Alene Akins) twice.
