Larry King's Wife Files for Divorce Too

4/14/2010 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0414_larry_king_wife_EX_01TMZ has learned Larry King's wife, Shawn Southwick has just filed her own legal papers for divorce.

Shawn's lawyer, Joe Mannis, filed the docs minutes after Larry filed.

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

She is alleging "irreconcilable differences."

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

UPDATE:  In Larry's divorce filings, he asks that any property transfers during the marriage be null and void.  It appears Larry transferred certain properties -- i.e., houses -- to Shawn ... probably for tax purposes.

Q    

Well this was predicatble---given she was a wanna be singer and Larry was supposed to get her career launched with his connections. The connections never came through, because frankly, she cant sing---so now she had to be married to the old coot, who should be a great grandfather to those two sons of theirs, but instead is her husband and the kids father. She has constant migraine headaches and probably hasnt screwed the old coot in years. It was a rarity to ever see the two photgraphed together. He will soon be on his 6th marriage. His ratings are abysmal, and the man has clearly lost a step and a half as well as much of his memory. Frightening that CNN keeps him on board.

Q    

Seem to remember that her Father was Marie Osmonds as well as the Osmond Family's business manager for years, until a recent fall out with Marie, who I believe accused him of ripping her off. Unusual for one Mormon to steal from another, but he apparently was up to something as she dumped him from her and the family after 30 plus years. Go figure. It was also interesting that Larry interviewed Marie regularly yet never once asked her about the debacle with the manager---probably on orders from Ms Migraine.

She married him figuring that within 10 years he would have his next and final coronary, and she would inherit his fortune. But unFORTUNate, the old geezer just keeps chugging along and she got fedup. Adam Carolla once said that if you pulled Larry King's suspenders and let them snap, poof! --there would just be ashes and dust
