Larry King has filed for divorce from his seventh wife, court filings show.
The 76-year-old host of CNN's "Larry King Live" filed yesterday to end the couple's nearly 13-year marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences." He married Shawn Southwick-King in a hospital room in 1997, three days before surgery to clear a clogged blood vessel.
The couple have two sons, ages 11 and 9. King is seeking joint custody of the boys. He is also asking a court not to award Southwick-King, 50, any spousal support.
SEAGAL'S LEGAL WOES PUT HIS SHOW ON HOLD
Production of a television show featuring reserve deputy and movie star Steven Seagal will be suspended "for the time being" as Seagal faces sexual harassment allegations, a suburban New Orleans sheriff said yesterday.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said the continued video recording of the reality series, "Steven Seagal Lawman," would be a distraction for the department in light of allegations made against Seagal by a woman in a California civil lawsuit.
Kayden Nguyen, a 23-year-old model, sued Seagal for $1 million on Monday in Los Angeles, alleging he sexually harassed her and engaged in sex trafficking. Seagal's attorney denied the allegations.
