Larry King Files for Divorce #8

4/14/2010 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0414-larry-king-wife-ex-01TMZ has learned Larry King and his wife Shawn Southwick just filed for divorce both citing "irreconcilable differences."

Shawn's lawyer, Joe Mannis, filed the docs minutes after Larry filed in L.A. County Superior Court.

Larry King is asking for joint custody of his kids while Shawn is asking for primary physical custody of the couple's two kids, as well as spousal and child support.

Shawn is also claiming much of the real estate as her separate property, including the Beverly Hills house she shared with King.

Larry, 76, and Shawn, 50, were married back in 1997 -- they have two sons together. 

Sources tell TMZ both Larry King and Shawn Southwick filed for divorce today after an explosive argument at their home in Beverly Hills.

Elin Nordegren -- Heading for Sweden?


Elin Nordegren is fixing up the house on her newly purchased property in her native Sweden -- proof that it may be the spot where Elin's headed to rebuild her life.


As we previously reported, Tiger Woods' current wife picked up the $2 million home late last year -- a home that could only be described as a dump, at best.

But now, new photos reveal that a major renovation is underway on the property -- and we're told the builders are trying to get everything done by the summer.

Tiger is scheduled to play the U.S. Open at the end of June -- seems the only way Elin will be watching is if they get cable in Sweden.

Oh Larry....say it ain't so! I thought this marriage would be the one to last for you. I know how much you love your little boys. I hope you do get joint custody.

The comment by Erica shows that she is demented. As for Larry King's eighth divorce, it just might be a sign that heterosexual marriages should not be allowed. Why wasn't something like this mentioned in the "Defense Of Marriage Act?" This kind of foolishness is far more harmful to the institution of marriage than the same-sex couple down the street who wish to wed. The former is obvious, the latter is pure conjecture.

Maybe he should marry Elizabeth Taylor next. They could be each other's 9th spouse.

Gee whiz don`t you think Larry King needs help in getting this marriage bit right. It is time he recognizes what he needs to do to make woman understand his motives and why he keeps getting it wrong.
I`m sorry for the kids as they never know why their parents split until they are older. Larry explain on your program why this keeps happening to you, do you always pick the wrong gals or is marriage too much to handle????

Its time.
Its time to let go, lets lighten up....really lighten up on Tiger Woods.
He has come clean, 'fessed up and wants desperately to put this behind him. If he were your son, wouldn't you want everyone to give him a chance?
Tiger has had to do a lot of 'growing up' in a very short time.
The press just wants to crucify him because they need a 'victim' to get them the most attention while playing the ratings game.
Remember, he who is without sin should cast the first stone.
Media types (particularly Jim Nantz) have enough skeletons in their individual closets to fill any number of cemeteries.

Oh, y-a-w-n. Anybody surprised? Larry, just accept the fact that it's your money, not you, that they're interested in. And you're WAY too old to be a dad - great-grandpa is more like it!

It was only a matter of time. Shawn was addicted to pills and was in rehab. She was having botox parties & spending Larry's money like water. Yes, she is a gold digger. I feel sorry for Larry & that he can't see what these ladies are after. Good luck Larry, I'm still you're #1 fan!!!
