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.

Larry should claim Financial Elder Abuse. There's tons of lawyers that would take it. Just claim he has lost his faculties and didn't know what he was doing.

Get real Larry. You had to know from the beginning that the only reason she would look at you twice was for the money. Have you ever considered marrying a mature, grown up woman? One that could actually cook and take care of you in your old age..Try it. You may even like it..

Clayton L. - Yeah it's because he's an atheist. Because only good things happen to religious people and only bad things happen to atheists. Keep living in your little "man in the sky who watches over me" fantasy. I'm sure it will keep anything bad from happening to you.

It is obvious that Larry King and his wife love each other so what is really going on. Why is he buying expensive gifts for that tart of a sister-in-law. Maybe that retch is blackmailing him.....TMC, do your thing.

This happened "several years ago?" Larry surely could have a serious problem overcoming a statute of limitations or laches defense if he seeks to undo the transfer. Poor ol' Larry's got the shiksa fever!!!
