Larry King -- Shawn Fights Unfairly

4/16/2010 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Larry King will fight to regain title to his Beverly Hills mansion and two other homes, on grounds Shawn Southwick and her lawyers used undue influence to make him sign his rights away.

Larry King -- Shawn Fights Unfairly
 
The Background:  Several years ago Shawn accused Larry of having an affair with her sister, Shannon Engemann.  Sources connected with Larry claim Shawn threatened to leak the story to the media, unless Larry signed a document, giving up his interest in their Beverly Hills estate, along with two other homes in Utah.
 
The Undue Influence: Sources say Larry took the document to his attorney, mega-divorce lawyer Dennis Wasser, who ordered him not to sign it.  Larry, we're told, actually went to Shawn's lawyer, who referred him to a former partner -- and that attorney eventually gave Larry the green light to sign the agreement.  We're told Wasser, who had no idea this went down, was furious.
 
The Plan: As we first reported, Larry will try to undo the agreement in divorce court.  The alleged undue influence -- that Shawn bullied Larry into sitting down with a former partner of her lawyer, who told him it was okay to sign the agreement.

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Roll it, and prick it, and mark it with a "S"
And put it in the oven for SIMONE and me!

I've always heard it said that if you marry more than three times you need to start looking in the mirror and ask yourself what you are doing wrong...

the word senile ,comes to mind after this story , so big deal , i would have told her to leak it . image conscious celebrity geez. he had already been married 7 times before , so this would not have been a shock. big deal that he banged her sister , he just wanted to keep it in the family .

Seeing that Larry King, as reported by TMZ, has a net worth of $144 million, what's the big deal about the house? And he's about to make another $56 million? Buy another home down the street and be done with it. It's not worth the mess. My brain hurts thinking about that much money.

This PROVES LK is senile and should not be on TV anymore. If he pulls this "nonsense" his wife will stop divorce proceedings and try to get him declared incompetent and keep ALL of the money!!!

Larry should loose his job. His morals are very questionable. Both him and his wife should be careful how they dish the dirt. Their kids will read it all. Neither has class.

So, Larry CHOOSES not to listen to his own lawyer, and it's everyone's fault but his? If he's really that old and senile, he should be in a nursing home.

This guy has a TV show asking people questions and comprehending the answer, but when it comes down to reading and taking advice he was bullied? Larry needs to bow out and get a life.

There's something about her. I remember seeing her on Larry's show right after Michael Jackson died. She was with Jermaine and they were talking about some concert they wanted to put on. She was giddy with delight. I didn't even know she could sing. I thought it was very inappropriate that she seemed so happy, while everyone else was in shock and grieving.
