Larry King and Wife Shawn Southwick Withdraw Divorce Petitions


Larry King, Shawn Southwick


The couple, who filed for divorce against each other back in April, has officially called off their separation by requesting a dismissal of the divorce filing in Los Angeles Superior Court on July 7.

After back in April Larry King's lawyer claimed a divorce between the television host and his wife Shawn Southwick had "a 50-50 chance" that it "is not happening," Larry and Shawn have now made their reconciliation official. The couple has filed legal papers, withdrawing their planned divorce, Larry's spokesman said on Thursday, July 8.

Larry and Shawn dropped their divorce on Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court and their request was granted on the same day. Larry's rep confirmed through a statement to Access Hollywood, "Larry King and his wife, Shawn, have both filed petitions to dismiss their divorce papers," with the host of "Larry King Live" adding "A lot of new things are happening to us, and we are happy to be together as a family with our children."

The divorce papers were filed by Larry and Shawn in April, citing "irreconcilable differences". Shawn accused Larry of cheating with her sister Shannon Southwick. However, Shannon had publicly denied the allegation, stating the 76-year-old TV icon is like a father to her.

Larry King married Shawn Southwick, who is his seventh wife, on September 5, 1997 in his California hospital room, three days before he underwent heart surgery to clear a clogged blood vessel. Together, they have two children, 11-year-old Chance Armstrong and 10-year-old Cannon Edward.
