Larry King’s last known will states that everything in his estate should be left in the hands of his children, according to multiple reports.
In a handwritten note dated October 17, 2019, obtained through multiple outlets, the television character stated that he wanted Chaia, Andy, Larry Jr., Chance and Cannon to get all of his fortune and divide it equally. Sadly, in 2020, King’s 65-year-old son Andy died in July, while his 51-year-old daughter Chaia died a month later.
King filed for divorce from Shawn King two months before writing this will, according to TMZ. According to the website, legal documents estimate King’s estate to be worth around $ 2 million, which does not count the separate assets held in separate trusts.Larry Jr. has also submitted documents requesting to be appointed administrator of the estate.
King died on January 23 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, just five months after Chaia’s death. He was 87 years old.
Shortly after his death, King’s sons, Larry Jr., 59, Chance, 21, and Cannon, 20, posted an emotional message on their father’s Facebook page.
“We are heartbroken by the death of our father, and together with our extended family we mourn his passing. The world knew Larry King as a great announcer and interviewer, but for us he was ‘dad,'” reads part of the statement. “He was the man who was lovingly obsessed with our daily schedules and well-being, and who took enormous pride in our accomplishments, big, small, or imagined. And yet we knew beyond a doubt in the world that he loved us. more than life itself. He was an amazing father, and he was fiercely loyal to those who were lucky enough to call him a friend. We will miss him every day of our lives. ”
After her death, Shawn told ET that her late husband died of a sepsis infection, unrelated to COVID-19.
“It was an infection, it was sepsis,” he shared. “Well he was finally ready to go, I’ll tell you. You know, he never wanted to go, but his sweet little body was just right, he had been hit so many times with so many things and once we heard the word COVID, all of our hearts just sank. But he beat it, you know, he beat it, but it did take its toll and then the unrelated infection was finally what took it away, but boy, it wasn’t going to go down easily. “
