No one wants to go through a cheating scandal (especially not when you’re age 82) and these latest reports about Larry King’s wife’s affair must be devastating to him.
Sources recently revealed to People magazine that Shawn King (who has been married to Larry since 1997) has allegedly been involved in a yearlong affair with another man. The man in question has reportedly been identified as Richard Greene, and according to People, he and Shawn did briefly split, although they are believed to have since reunited.
“It’s true, and Larry is completely embarrassed and anguished by all of this,” one source close to the situation told People of the alleged infidelity. “He doesn’t know what to do.”
So, what’s next for Larry and Shawn? Is there a possibility that they might be able to work past this? According to Page Six, Larry has yet to make a decision on whether or not he wants to file for divorce.
“All options are being considered,” a source told the publication. “Nothing has been ruled out.” But the source also told publication that even before news of the scandal broke, Shawn was reportedly “ready to divorce Larry for this guy, but the guy was hesitant about it.” Wow, just wow.
We should also note that this isn’t the first time the Kings have almost called it quits. In 2010 the couple filed for divorce, only to later change their minds and rekindle the romance. However, according to Page Six, an insider revealed that the marriage has essentially been over since 2010 and that Shawn has only stayed with her husband “for the kids’ sake.”
So, could this be the final straw? We hope not, but we have to wait and see how this messy situation pans out.
