Larry King's Cause of Death Released & His Widow Clarifies It Wasn't Coronavirus

Larry King passed away over the weekend at the age of 87, and now, his widow Shawn has revealed that he did not die from COVID-19, as was previously assumed.

If you don’t know, he was hospitalized for COVID-19 late last month, though it seemed things were going well when he was moved out of intensive care and was breathing on his own.

Now, Shawn is speaking out.

“It was an infection, it was sepsis,” she told Today. “Well, he was finally ready to go, I will tell you that. You know, he never wanted to go, but his sweet little body was just — it had just been hit so many times with so many things and once we heard the word COVID, all of our hearts just sunk.”

About his COVID battle, she added, “But he beat it, you know, he beat it, but it did take its toll and then the unrelated infection finally is what took him, but boy, he was not gonna go down easily.”

Find out who was called out for his insensitive post about Larry King after his passing.

Our continued thoughts are with the King family during this time.
