Larry King Shocker -- No Prenup!

4/15/2010 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Larry King does not have a prenup with estranged wife Shawn Southwick.

Larry King Shocker -- No Prenup!

Sources tell us Larry -- who was married 7 times before tying the knot with Shawn -- did not demand a prenup.  As one source close to the situation tells TMZ, "She is a tall, good-looking blonde and that pretty much explains it."

Larry's net worth is reportedly estimated at $144 million.  He's in the middle of a CNN contract reportedly worth $56 million over 4 years.

In California, earnings accumulated during a marriage are split 50/50.  Shawn and Larry have been married for nearly 13 years. 

Ouch.

What a shame! First of all, how does a mediocre interviewer who should have retired years ago gather all this cash?! $144 mil for an old fart who asks a question, talks over the person before they finish their answer and does not stay on a clear path. Secondly, besides having 2 more of his offspring, what did this wife do to deserve half of what he earned? $72 million dollars because she put up with his old ass?!? I don't think so! And stupid him for believing that someone over 25 years younger than him would actually be interested in him for something other than money and fame. Get a clue! I'd hang out with your wrinkled ass for a quarter of that amount!!!

They say the older you get the wiser you get. Well, there must be a cutoff for some people, cause once you get to a certain age, it appears you start getting dumb again.

uh huh, like Shawna fell in love with HIM to begin with, she just secured her deal by having kids. History repeating itself, older men, younger women, big bank accounts, nothing new here.

too bad about him not having a prenuptial agreement. You'd think he would learn he needs to, but then again...married eight times is excessive enough without having the problem of no prenup.

You know TMZ, I used to be a loyal fan of this site, but the past few months have just been pathetic. You keep talking about the same damn stories over and over (Tiger Woods, Sandra Bullock, Lindsay Lohan) and they're lame stories at that. I've been spending a lot more time on X17 lately and their stories are much better, and so are the pictures and videos. I'm about ready to give up on this site.

Always get a PRE-NUP!! Ain't no B***H in the world worth half your fortune. Lazy-ass ho doesn't deserve anything. He made his fortune on his own.



She should be paid according to what a hooker would cost him.

I'm a crazy person...    

Wow. Considering how obvious the gold digger was and how women like this are so obviously after one thing, he DIDN'T get a pre-nup?!?! Wow. Good for her I guess. Good for gold-digging women everywhere. No need for an education or a job. Just look good and put out. Oh wait...Anna Nicole Smith was in LOVE with the rich geezer! My bad. I take it all back.

She'll get a cool $25M and life goes on.



He's in the middle of a big fat contract at CNN and he has a couple of kids that apparently... he likes and that is good enough.



Count your blessings and get out Larry. Every man on the planet is on your side. And it looks to me like you can get any broad that you want to get.



So.



May we have the next blond in line, please.
