Larry and Shawn King -- May Come Down to Money

6/13/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry King and wife Shawn King have not withdrawn their divorce petitions ... and we're told the tipping point is money.


People familiar with the situation tell us nothing is going to happen while Shawn recovers from what may have been a suicide attempt.  But before that crisis, we're told one of Larry's lawyers  presented a proposal to Shawn's lawyer to undo an agreement he signed several years ago ... in which he signed over all 3 of their houses to her.

Larry signed the document after Shawn accused him of sleeping with her sister. 

And, we're told, one of Larry's lawyers -- not Dennis Wasser -- submitted a proposal for a new division of property that did not sit well with Shawn.

As one source says, "It will come down to striking a deal on the money issues."

It's amazing that his old dilapidated self is 1) still working, 2) still trying to marry relatively young chicks and 3) still worrying about money. Doesn't he have enough. He should have known that she was after the money. I mean, really. Even Hugh Hefner knows. Stop swimming in de Nial Larry!

My guess is the "attempt" was trying to get attention form some other man who dumped her.
I seriously doubt the kids baseball coach was the only man she was sleeping with.
She wants his money and when he is gone she will be fighting with someone for more than she gets regardless of how much she gets.
I feel sure she could get twice as much as she thinks and ten times more than she deserves and she will still fight for more.

You can rent love but you can't buy it.

Okay, so let's assume what most people here think is obvious:she married for money.

But really, if two people go into it knowing that, who are we to judge. If she did marry him for money,it would be ridiculous to think HE didn't know that.

So what's his excuse? How many consecutive years has this man been able to stay in a monogamous relationship? Why does he divorce and remarry so quickly and so often? He proposed to one of his wives on their FIRST DATE and proposed to another woman after dating only five weeks.

Yet we're going to say SHE has problems?
