Larry King files for divorce and seeks joint custody
Larry King’s wife Shawn Southwick is his 8th wife in his history of love, but it looks like that is going to end rapidly. He was by her side when she entered rehab for addiction to painkillers that reportedly were perhaps caused by Larry’s controlling actions. In 2007 the couple went into a screaming fight at Nate’n Al’s in Beverly Hills that caused a scene. Southwick ran out the restaurant down the street and King went after her. On their 10th anniversary Southwick proudly stated that she “”is the only [wife] to have lasted into the two digits.” But that little honeymoon has now come to a close.
TMZ has just reported that King has just filed for divorce against Southwick. The reason for the split lists “irreconcilable differences,” making her the 8th woman he has divorced. In addition they report that King is seeking custody of their kids. His lawyer Susan Carter said, “Larry loves his children very much and will be an integral part of their lives.”
