Larry King's Wife Shawn Plans to Contest His Will After Being Left Out

Larry King‘s wife Shawn, with whom he was in the process of getting a divorce before his death, is planning to contest his will.

The 61-year-old actress plans to contest his will after the late TV star amended it in 2019 to leave his $2 million estate solely to his five children, two of whom are deceased, ET reported Tuesday (February 16).

“The handwritten will, obtained by ET, is dated Oct. 17, 2019; King filed for divorce from Shawn two months earlier, in August 2019, after 22 years of marriage. According to ET‘s source, Shawn plans to contest the will in court,” the outlet reported.

The amended will left his fortune to children Chaia, Andy, Larry Jr., Chance and Cannon. In 2020, his 65-year-old son Andy died in July while his 51-year-old daughter, Chaia, died a month later.

Larry King Kept Ex-Wife Shawn Out of His Will

The late Larry King made sure his fortune did not go to his ex-wife, Shawn.

The talk show host, who passed away in January, made it clear in his will, filed three days before filing for divorce from his seventh wife, that his millions of dollars will be allocated only to his children.

“This is my Last Will & Testament. It should replace all previous writings In the event of my death, any day after the above date I want 100% of my funds to be divided equally among my children Andy, Chaia, Lary Jr Chance & Cannon,” the message reads, which was signed in October of 2019.

Larry King Jr. is also stepping in to overrule any possibility of Shawn trying to become an administrator of the estate.

“The Decedent was married to Shawn Southwick King (“Ms. King”) at the time of death. However, the Decedent and Ms. King were actively involved in ongoing dissolution proceedings in Los Angeles Superior Court. The Decedent and Ms. King were residing separately at the time of death,” new paperwork reveals, via The Blast.

Shawn recently revealed the sentimental item they all wore at his funeral.

Larry King‘s wife, Shawn King, is speaking out.

The 61-year-old widow of the late TV superstar spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the death of her husband, revealing that she and her family had a private funeral service and wore something special in his honor.

“We laid him to rest this morning. And in the Jewish faith, they do it very quickly, so you almost don’t have time to, for me, to process. I’m still processing. And as are the boys, the whole family is just, you know, yeah,” she explained.

“We all, it was just family, we wore Larry‘s suspenders, every one of us. And it was a beautiful, loving…just perfect, just perfect. It was family. There was no showbiz, no, none of that,” she continued.

“Death is maybe the great equalizer, I think. You know, when you experience it with people who we really, really love, all the other noise and the nonsense that could be surrounding, it just goes away and the family goes close together. And that’s what happened. You know, it was beautiful.”

Larry died at 87 on Saturday morning (January 23), leaving behind Shawn and their sons, 21-year-old Chance and 20-year-old Cannon. He is also survived by his eldest son, 59-year-old Larry King, Jr., from his marriage to Annette Kaye. Here’s what his sons said after his passing.

Larry & Shawn King Break Silence on Cheating Rumors

Larry King and his wife Shawn are breaking their silence on the rumors that she had a year-long affair with British public speaker Richard Greene.

The 82-year-old talk show host appears on Friday’s Home and Family episode for Hallmark Channel alongside Shawn, 56.

“[It's] an interesting word, ‘rumor.’ You know, I’ve been in the business – next May I’ll be 60 years – and I’ve dealt with rumors a long time, interviewed people involved with rumors. Rumors are what they are – they’re rumors. And I tell you the truth: I don’t pay any attention to them,” Larry says in the clip.

“Last week there was a rumor going around about Larry and a speech he made in Kiev, and there was all this [speculation] about that,” Shawn added. “This week I’m latest the pin-up girl. You have to just develop a shell around yourself and not get hard on the inside and stick together. We’ve been at it for a while.”
