Larry King Files For Divorce #8 in Mad Dash for Guinness Record

Alex Blagg / April 14, 2010

Attention, ladies! Got a thing for gravel-voiced septuagenarians? Today is your lucky day!

CNN talk-show host Larry King has filed for divorce from his latest wife, Shawn Southwick, making this the eighth time that the interviewing legend has called it quits on a marriage. King made it official at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday afternoon, citing “irreconcilable differences” in the divorce papers.

Like, maybe, the 26-year-age difference between the two? Well, not really; according to reports the filing occurred after an epic brawl at the couple’s Beverly Hills residence over allegations of infidelity. Southwick reportedly accused King of fooling around with her sister, Shannon Engemann, though Engemann has dismissed her sister’s claims as “ludicrous.”

Poor Larry; good thing he has dependable buddies he can fall back on in his time of need.

King and Southwick, who have two sons together, married in 1997.
