Larry King Divorce: No Prenup With Wife Shaun Southwick

Posted: Updated:

Uh oh.

TMZ reports that Larry King and Shawn Southwick, who filed for divorce Wednesday in California, did not have a prenuptial agreement.

"She is a tall, good-looking blonde and that pretty much explains it," a source told TMZ of King's refusal to demand a prenup.

The CNN host is worth an estimated $144 million. The New York Post reported last year that he was also a Madoff victim: the paper claims that he lost over $1 million in Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme.

California law dictates that spouses split earnings accumulated during the marriage right down the middle.
