Larry King’s wife Shawn is having an affair with another man after 19 years of marriage to the popular talk show host, a new report has it.
The National Enquirer claims that Shawn and the man have been enjoying ‘steamy afternoon sex sessions’ and that she has been sending him racy nude photos.
Her paramour is not named in the story but described as a ‘Hollywood Don Juan’ who was at one time a ‘top confidante to Princess Diana.’
Larry, 82, and Shawn, 57, both previously filed for divorce in 2010 in the wake of allegations that the legendary television personality was having an affair with her younger sister.
The couple, who have two teenage sons, eventually stopped the proceedings and reconciled.
It would have been the ninth divorce for Larry, who has had seven wives and been married eight times.
In one of the alleged texts sent by Shawn to her lover, she wrote that her husband seems to know about the affair.
‘Larry made another joke about me having an affair last night … He said I looked cute in my glasses like a school teacher … having an affair with one of my students,’ texted Shawn.
‘He senses a shift in me.’
In another conversation that man allegedly told Shawn in a text: ‘You do have great ankles, legs, eyes, brain, breasts, mouth, vagina etc. etc.’
Shawn also allegedly texted about leaving her husband at one point, saying however it would not be for another man but because of problems in their own relationship.
‘I would leave Larry because he killed our romance years ago, and my boys [Chance and Cannon] didn’t do anything to deserve to be raised by a [redacted] who indulges them at every turn.’
In July, Shawn allegedly texted her lover a photo ‘showing her seductively exposing a breast.’
And the lover allegedly referred to one hookup between the two as the ‘Sleep WITH a King’ campaign.
Shawn allegedly joked in response text that she would be ‘in charge of casting,’ which led to the man responding: I have a large [redacted].’
A source close to Larry said: This could be the end of their marriage. She cheats on her husband and pops pills!’
Shawn was previously accused of having an affair in 2008 with her sons’ baseball coach, but she denied that allegation.
