Who Are All of Larry King's 7 Ex-Wives? The TV Host Just Got Divorced Again


After 22 years, it was confirmed that 85-year-old TV host Larry King filed for divorced from Shawn Southwick King, his seventh wife. The couple had two sons together (Chance, who's 20, and Cannon, who's 19). According to The Blast, which first reported on the divorce, Larry filed on Tuesday due to "irreconcilable differences." Larry and Shawn have been separated since June 6, 2019. Sources say Shawn was having an affair, and Larry was understandably "distraught." However, this hasn't been proven, In 2016, Larry responded to rumors of an affair by saying, "You said an interesting word, ‘rumor.’ I’ve been in the business — next May, it’ll be 60 years — and I’ve dealt with rumors a long time," adding that he's learned to stop paying attention to them. 

Who are all of Larry's ex-wives? He's had seven, counting Shawn.

Before he married Shawn, Larry was with Julie Alexander from 1989 to1992, Sharon Lepore from 1976 to 1983, Alene Akins from 1968 to 1971 (and he was previously married to her from 1961 to 1963), Mickey Sutphin from1964 to 1967, and Annette Kay in 1961. His first wife was Freda Miller, who he married in 1952 — he had his marriage with her annulled in 1953.
