Larry King and wife Shawn blast ‘false tabloid innuendo’ about infidelity

Going strong, they swear: talk show host Larry King and his wife, Shawn, denying reports that she’s been having an affair.

“We stand together in support of our marriage and our family in opposition to malicious gossip and false tabloid innuendo to the contrary,” he wrote as a caption to a smiling Instagram pic.

People magazine had reported last month that Shawn King, 56, had been involved in a year-long affair.

The Kings married in 1997 and filed for divorce in 2010, though they later reconciled. They have two teenage sons together. The longtime TV talker has been married eight times (twice to the same woman), and his union with Shawn, a former singer, has been his longest-lasting.
