Larry King Divorce From Shawn Southwick: Game On!

by at . Comments

Bring on marriage #9.

Despite rumors of a possible reconciliation with his wife, Larry King is holed up in a Beverly Hills hotel and remains "committed to his divorce."

"The divorce is full steam ahead," says a source close to the situation, noting that relations remain amicable, but for the sake of their children.

The source says that Shawn Southwick remains in the family's Beverly Hills home with their two kids while King has been residing in a hotel.

He's staying about a mile away. Reports of the two patching things up arose when they agreed to seek counseling - but not to remain married.

Larry Kind and Shawn Southwick wed in 1996.

"People go to reconciliation to save their marriage or to make sure their actions are in the children's best interest," says his lawyer Dennis Wasser.

"If I were a betting man, it's for the latter."

The insider also confirms that Larry King doesn't have a prenup. "He really thought this was the woman for the rest of his life," the source said.

"He's sad that it turned out differently."

As for rumors that King had an affair with Shawn's younger sister Shannon Engemann, the source confirms that there was a close relationship.

However, "Larry never had sex with her." Hmm. Something of a vague denial if you read between the lines. What about flirting, even kissing?
