Larry King wanted it to be clear that he wanted all if his money to go to his children, not his estranged wife, Shawn King.
On Feb. 11, The Blast posted a photo of the TV icon's last will, which clearly stated he wanted his seventh wife to get nothing from his estate.
"This is my Last Will & Testament. It should replace all previous writings In the event of my death, any day after the above date I want 100% of my funds to be divided equally among my children Andy, Chaia, Lary Jr Chance & Cannon," the handwritten will said, which was dated Oct. 17, 2019.
Two months prior to the will being written, Larry filed for divorce from Shawn. The will had not been updated after the deaths of his son Andy and daughter Chaia, who both died a month apart in summer 2020.
According to reports, the broadcasting legend's son Larry Jr. has asked to be administrator of the estate, not Shawn, who was technically still married to Larry at the time.
"The Decedent was married to Shawn Southwick King ("Ms. King") at the time of death. However, the Decedent and Ms. King were actively involved in ongoing dissolution proceedings in Los Angeles Superior Court. The Decedent and Ms. King were residing separately at the time of death," he said in court documents.
Due to the proceedings, Larry Jr. and the rest of the children want Shawn totally out of estate dealings.
Some estimates put the value of the estate at around $50 million.
