The wife of celebrity TV personality Larry King, more famous for his TV show on CNN, ‘Larry King Live’ Shawn has been caught cheating on her 82-year-old husband. The accomplice of Shawn, Richard Greene is the named “Master of Charisma” by the Sunday Times of London and whose website includes a bevy of A-list clients, including Will Smith, Princess Diana and Naomi Campbell.
According to Radar, though lawyers representing the troubled couple, as well as Greene’s rep, claimed that reports of the affair were “inaccurate,” sources say Shawn has been prepping America’s “best idea guy” to be the next Larry King.
Meanwhile, her 82-year-old hubby is already in talks with divorce lawyers, according to a source, after RadarOnline.com published the raunchy sex messages Shawn exchanged with her lover, blowing open her illicit affair.
Shawn, 57, was caught sending sexually charged Facebook messages to her lover, and a source close to the former CNN host told Radar that her marriage was crumbling. “Larry detests Shawn,” said the source. “He has only put up with this for the sake of his children.”
When Shawn’s lothario complimented her “great ankles, legs, eyes, brain breasts, vagina, etc., etc.” she responded that it served her husband right that she had another man appreciating her fine body. She wrote: He “should have thought of that 10 years ago. He just loves the chase. He knows deep down inside he’ll never have me again. And that drives him…I shut him off.”
Shawn’s paramour insisted in one exchange that she should not leave her husband for her lover, but she entertained the idea and blamed Larry for their misery. “We’ll just have to see what happens, won’t we?” she responded. Though she wrote she would never leave Larry for another man, she claimed she would dump him “because he killed our romance years ago.”
The source close to the couple told Radar that the couple did indeed live in a damaged relationship. “There is no love lost,” the source claimed. “This has been a marriage of convenience for the last eight years.”
“It’s been many years and this could finally be the end,” the source told Radar about their fractured marriage. “They detest each other. She has made his life miserable for some time. At his age he would like to have some peace in his life finally.”
The Kings have two sons, teenagers Chance and Cannon, and the source told Radar they were the reason Larry didn’t pull the trigger on a divorce years ago. “This is just another example of him being humiliated by her,” the source said. “He is talking to attorneys. There is no decision if they are divorcing yet, but it isn’t looking good.”
