Larry King is seeking a divorce from his seventh wife, Shawn King, after 22 years of marriage.

The 85-year-old talk show host filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday to end his marriage.

Larry King and Shawn King, then a singer and TV host, married in 1997 and have two adult sons, Chance and Cannon.

This is not the first time the couple has split. They both filed for divorce in 2010, citing “irreconcilable differences,” but later reconciled.

Larry King, who has five children, has been married eight times to seven different women. He married and divorced one of his ex-wives Alene Akins twice.

He has overcome several serious health issues in recent years, including a bout with lung cancer two years ago.

In April, King underwent a heart procedure after experiencing “angina,” which the Mayo Clinic describes as chest pain that is caused by a reduced blood flow to the heart.

“In life you never know what can happen at any given moment,” his son Chance said Monday while reflecting on his father’s health issues.
