TV personality Larry King files for divorce from wife number 7

Larry King and his wife of 22 years are calling it quits. Connecticut residents may know Larry King best for his television talk show. His 7th wife, Shawn, said that her husband's recent filing for a divorce came as a surprise to her. Larry, 85, and Shawn, 59, have two grown sons.

The divorce papers cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. This isn't the first time Larry filed for divorce from Shawn. The two mended fences some years back. He withdrew a petition in 2010 after the couple reconciled. Shawn was a singer and TV presenter when the couple married in 1997.

Larry King has been married eight times to seven different women -- he married one woman twice. The TV personality has five children. He has battled health issues in recent years including lung cancer. He is said to be in good spirits amidst the divorce filing.

Divorce is difficult in any circumstance. The reasons behind separation or divorce can be as unique as a couple itself, but there may be instances when there is a lot on the line financially as in the cases of celebrities who have many assets. A Connecticut attorney may be able to offer advice to a divorcing client who may have questions regarding issues that are connected to divorce such as spousal and child support, child custody and the division of assets. The family law court system is often complex and an attorney may be able to help a client navigate through the divorce process.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
