Larry King Files for Divorce from Wife

Larry King has decided he wants to be single! The talk show host has filed for divorce from his wife of twelve years Shawn Southwick King.

King's spokesperson Howard Rubenstein confirmed the news to People saying, "His major concern is the welfare of his children, and beyond that he's not going to comment about the divorce."

In his divorce filing, King lists the couple's separation date as April 13. He is also asking the court to deny Southwick King any spousal support, so something must have gotten ugly!

According to TMZ, the couple got into a huge fight at their home in Beverly Hills earlier this week. Shawn is reportedly accusing Larry of having an affair with one of her close relatives! Talk about gross!

An inside source close to the family tells Hollyscoop that Shawn is barely ever around, and the kids spend the majority of their time with the nanny.

Larry hasn’t made any comments, but in February he told TMZ he and Shawn were "hanging by a thread."

We hope he talks about it on camera! This sounds like it’s going to be a scandalous divorce!
