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.
