Split No.7: The seventh time was not the charm for Larry King. The talk show host filed divorce papers Wednesday to end his 13 year marriage to Shawn Southwick. "His major concern is the welfare of his children, and beyond that he's not going to comment about the divorce," King's spokesperson told People. King's attorney said his client "would like to do these proceedings amicably." Seems like it will, considering Southwick filed her own divorce papers Wednesday as well. In King's filing, he asked for shared custody of their two sons, 9-year-old Cannon and 11-year-old Chance. He also asked the court to deny his wife any spousal support. Southwick wants sole custody of the kids plus spousal support. There were rumors the couple was splitting because King slept with Southwick's sister Shannon Engemann. But Engemann told Access Hollywood yesterday that the two never had an affair.
