Larry King's Wife: He Never Got Me That Necklace

4/15/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources directly connected with Larry King and Shawn Southwick tell TMZ Shawn believes Larry has been having an affair with her sister for 5 years ... and the cover was blown when Shawn checked his Visa statement.

larry king  and his wife Shawn Southwick
One source intimately familiar with the situation tells us Larry bought wildly expensive gifts for Shannon Engemann, including a $160,000 car and "tons of gifts from Cartier."  We're told Larry used his credit card to purchase many of the gifts. The credit card bills were paid by Larry's business manager. 

We're told Shawn started looking at the statements, saw a Cartier diamond necklace, and then told a friend, "He never gave me a diamond necklace."

So began 5 years of never-ending drama.  Friends tell TMZ there were numerous instances where the couple was fighting, sometimes physically.  One friend recalls an incident outside of Nate 'n Al in Beverly Hills a year and a half ago where the couple was "punching each other."

As we first reported, several years ago Larry attempted to save their marriage by transferring 3 homes -- including the one in Beverly Hills -- into Shawn's name alone, to show his commitment to the marriage.

Friends tell TMZ Shawn went into a "deep depression" for a long time and literally wouldn't leave the house. 

Ironically, in the last two weeks, friends felt things were "calming down" between Larry and Shawn.

When you become wife #8, how on earth could you expect your husband to stay faithful??? She must have married him for his $$ and the other women must have slept with him for the same reason! I mean, look at his teeth - how could anyone kiss a man who has his kind of $$ and doesn't go to the dentist???

Why isn't Larry King being treated like Tiger? Would Tiger's wife be with him if he we're not Tiger? I don't see the difference... cheating is cheating, and a gold digger is a gold digger.

Is this story going to get as much press as Tiger Woods? Kinda doubt it. Larry should take some of that money and get a mental evaluation.

She should just stay married. He has one foot in the grave and one foot on a banana peel. If she holds out she'll get everything in a few years anyway!

How Larry made it so many years without learning to keep these b!tches out of his life amazes me.



Nonetheless...



a) Dividing that property had nothing to do with "gifting", it had to do with tax planning. She no doubt saw an opportunity to con the old man after he divided up HIS WEALTH to save inheritence taxes for his kids. Just like the Walton's did many years ago.



2) That POS female has MENOPAUSE written all over her face. Trust me. Larry ain't getting any lovin in that househould because her KOLUPKUS already dried up.




Hang in there Larry - and once again, to all the men who read TMZ... DO NOT GET MARRIED!! DO NOT DO IT!!! HAVE FUN... TAKE THE B!TCHES ON VACATION, BUT DO NOT EVER MARRY THEM.
