Talk show host Larry King filed for divorce from his seventh wife Shawn Southwick on April 14. Now, nasty allegations of cheating on both sides are promising to catapult this split into a very nasty celeb divorce!

Shawn Southwick, 50, says that legendary CNN host Larry King has been having an affair — with her younger sister no less!

Shawn has accused her 46-year-old sister, Shannon Engemann, of having an affair with Larry. According to, Shawn says that Larry lavished expensive gifts on Shannon, including  a $160,000 car and diamond necklace from Cartier.

Apparently, Shawn found Larry’s receipts, and confessed to a pal, “He never gave me a diamond necklace.” But Shannon completely denies any sexual relationship, insisting that the CNN host has “been like a father to me.”

Larry and Shawn have been on the rocks for a while. In February, King joked that the couple was “hanging by a thread” after The National Enquirer reported in December that Shawn was the one who was cheating on Larry — with her son’s baseball coach. Shawn denied those claims, but sources tell AOL PopEater that Shawn may have also had an affair with one of her husband’s employees.

In the divorce documents, filed April 14, King asks for joint custody of the couple’s two sons, Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9. “Larry’s major concern is the welfare of his children. Beyond that, he’ll have no further comment,” King’s spokesman Howard Rubenstein told the New York Daily News.

This is Larry’s eighth divorce from seven different women. He married wife number three, former Playboy Bunny Alene Akins twice!
