King’s updated will was supposedly dated October 17, 2019 -just two months after Larry registered for divorce from Shawn. According to reports from TMZ, the widow is claiming the amended will does not oust the “formal” document that was written back in 2015, which is when she was worded the sole custodian of the King Family Trust. Now, she is seeking to replace Larry King Jr. as a special administrator of the$ 2 million property, because she reputes “shes in” very good position to handle his assets.

“During the call of the marriage Shawn was actively involved in Larry’s career and ventures, was a partner in many of them and continued in that role up to Larry’s death, and currently, ”her attorney wrote in law filings obtained by Us Weekly. “Shawn is the one with the most knowledge of Larry’s ventures, resources, and wishes.”

Shawn goes on to claim that she and Larry attempted to reconcile their twenty-year-plus marriage after he filed for divorce. They even attended counseling up until Larry’s “health conditions constituted that impractical.” She went on to say that the Emmy-winning host “was generally nonresponsive and refused to participate in the divorce proceeding” before he died on January 23.

In the aforementioned handwritten will, Larry King stated that he craved Larry Jr, and his other four children-Chaia, Andy, Chance, and Cannon-to split his fortune evenly. Andy died in July of last year at 65; Chaia died the next month at 51.

Back in December, King was prescribed by the court to pay his ex-wife $33 k a few months in spousal subsistence in addition to a one-time lump sum of $20,000.
