Eighth Divorce (And An Affair?) For Larry King

Larry King

Was he cheating on wife Shawn King with one of her relatives?

Eighth time's a charm? Hey, we've all been in relationships that we thought would last forever and ever, only to have them go up in flames, but Larry King is pushing it. The television host has filed for divorce from his wife of 13 years, citing irreconcilable differences.

But could an affair be to blame? (Has anyone started an official count of celebrity affairs in 2010 yet? Geez!) TMZ says that Larry King and wife Shawn had an explosive argument at their Beverly Hills home. Cars reportedly screeched out of their driveaway following the argument...perhaps in a race to the courthouse? Shawn apparently submitted her own divorce papers just minutes after Larry submitted his.

The split doesn't come as a huge surprise: back in February, Larry joked(?) to TMZ that he and Shawn were "hanging on by a thread." And Larry's wishy-washy track record with relationships hasn't exactly been stellar. This is his eight divorce but seventh wife; he married his third wife for a second time.

Larry's lawyer told TMZ that King hopes the split will be amicable...but it seems things are already rocky. He filed for joint custody of the couple's two sons, while Shawn asked for primary physical custody and spousal support.
