Larry King Estranged Wife, Shawn King, To Contest Secret Will!
Is Larry King getting the last laugh now that he is leaving NOTHING to his estranged wife according to his penned secret will? Read on…
CelebnMusic247.com has learned that Larry King’s estranged wife, Shawn King, the seventh wife of the famed broadcaster, will be contesting his will.
What we have learned is just a month before Larry King filed for divorce from Shawn he penned a secret will leaving NOTHING to Shawn King and only $2 million of his $144 million dollar empire.
Larry King just made his death messy with a shocking secret will!
Shawn King, who’s mom to the journalist’s sons Chance and Cannon, told New York Post’s Page Six:
We had a very watertight family estate plan. It still exists…the estate plans they drew up in 2015 are legitimate will. Period. And I fully believe it will hold up, and my attorneys are going to be filing a response, probably by the end of the day.
Here is the problem – Last week, news emerged that Larry wrote a handwritten amendment to his will on Oct. 17, 2019 — about two months after filing for divorce.
Shawn told Page Six that she and Larry had become close friends again after he filed for divorce and they spoke daily.
She said when asked why she thinks he wrote the amended will:
It beats me! Based on the timeline, it just doesn’t make sense.
She went on to say that she thinks someone influenced him to create the amended will, but wouldn’t say who.
Shawn said her two sons, Cannon and Chance, were also unaware of the amended will and were “shocked.” They will support her legal battle, she said, adding, “They are not happy about this.”
Making the split of the estate more complicated, two of Larry’s children named in his 2019 will — Andy and Chiara — both died last year, weeks apart, from different ailments. Larry has one other son, Larry Jr.
Shawn spoke out following Larry’s death, sharing details of their goodbye, via FaceTime from the hospital, and how he told her he loved her and asked her to take care of their sons. She also shared that the whole family wore his signature suspenders to the funeral service.
Shawn told Entertainment Tonight:
Larry and I, you know, we never finalized our divorce. In my heart, I didn’t think it was really going to happen and it never did. We were partners in every sense of the way, in business, and in, well, first in our family and then in business. But we’re a close family. You know, family is the most important thing, and God.
Larry — who was married eight times to seven women — told People in 2020 that he would “always care” for his wife, but that “it just hit a point where we didn’t get along.” He explained, “We had a big age difference and that eventually takes its toll. It became an issue. Also, [Shawn] is a very religious Mormon and I’m an agnostic atheist so that eventually causes little problems. We overcame a lot, but eventually, it became a ships-passing-in-the-night situation.”
Lary King’s net worth is estimated at $144 million and his wife gets nothing now that secret will has surfaced. And both of his sons only get $2 million so where is the other $142 million going?
