Larry King Divorce Called Off

larry-kingTelevision host and news anchor Larry King and his seventh wife has called off their plans to divorce.

King, 76, and Shawn Southwick, 50, both filed for divorce last month. They have been married for 13 years and have two children together. They both cited irreconcilable differences.

“We love our children, we love each other, we love being a family. That is all that matters to us,” the couple said in their joint statement. “We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other. We want to thank our friends for their loyal love and support – for being there for us.”

The divorce lawyer of the CNN host confirmed that the couple attended marriage counseling a week after they have filed their respective divorce papers only minutes apart last April 14.

Reports indicate that King already checked out from a Beverly Hills hotel and has moved back to the family home.

Their divorce would have been the eighth for King who remarried one of his previous wives.
