A legal battle has blown up between the wife of former legendary deceased broadcaster Larry King, her former business managers and his son, Larry King Jr.
Shawn has sued her former business managers, Blouin & Company, claiming they conspired with Larry Jr to steal portions of her inheritance.
Larry King died in January 2021 after being hospitalized for COVID-19. A month later, his son moved to takeover as special administrator of his estate from Shawn, pointing to a handwritten amendment by King leaving his assets to his five children.
Shawn King challenged the will.
That case was settled but she filed a new case at Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday, October 6th 2022.
According to her, Blouin & Company conspired with Larry King Jr to divest her from the estate in addition to illegally transferring out millions.
“The Blouin Defendants led a fraudulent and malicious conspiracy to steal money from their own client, Mrs. King, and deprive Mrs. King from her rights and interests in the estate of her late husband,” reads the complaint, adding that the firm shared confidential financial information with Larry King Jr. to aid him in his suit.
King’s amendment to his will was written two months after he filed for divorce. It was never finalized, but Larry King Jr. argued that Shawn King shouldn’t be executor of the estate since she and King were actively involved in discussions to separate.
