Estranged wife Shawn Southwick is entitled to half his earnings over their 13-year marriage.
Larry King has no prenup, which almost kind of blows your mind. This is, after all, his eighth divorce. Shouldn't he have learned his lesson by now?
Guess not. And while it would be tempting to blame his short-sightedness on, well, his ancient, old-man mind, perhaps there was something else at play...
"She is a tall, good-looking blonde and that pretty much explains it," says a TMZ source close to the situation. Ahh, the leggy, blonde defense. Makes sense. Per TMZ:
Sources tell us Larry -- who was married 7 times before tying the knot with Shawn -- did not demand a prenup. As one source close to the situation tells TMZ, "She is a tall, good-looking blonde and that pretty much explains it."
Larry's net worth is reportedly estimated at $144 million. He's in the middle of a CNN contract reportedly worth $56 million over 4 years.
In California, earnings accumulated during a marriage are split 50/50. Shawn and Larry have been married for nearly 13 years.
Ouch. [Source: TMZ]
