US television personality Larry King and his seventh wife have both filed for divorce to end their 13-year marriage.
King’s spokesman Howard Rubenstein says the 76-year-old CNN broadcaster has filed for divorce from Shawn Southwick, 50, with whom he has two children.
“His major concern is the welfare of his children and beyond that he’ll have no further comment about the divorce,” Mr Rubenstein said.
He said minutes after King’s attorneys filed their court papers, lawyers for Southwick, who is a singer, filed divorce documents in Los Angeles.
Both parties are citing irreconcilable differences.
King’s attorney, Dennis Wasser, says the broadcaster wants to “keep this divorce amicable”.
King has been married to seven different women, but this is his eighth divorce because he remarried one of his former spouses and then divorced her again.
The broadcaster hosts Larry King Live on CNN, where he interviews political figures and celebrities, dressed in suspenders that have become his personal trademark.
He often allows viewers to call in with questions for guests.
King is seeking joint custody of their children, while Southwick is seeking primary custody.
