NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Talk show host Larry King is divorcing Shawn Southwick King, his seventh wife, TMZ reported Tuesday.

King, 85, filed divorce papers Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. Shawn Southwick King is 59. 

The couple have two sons, ages 19 and 20.

In 2010, the former CNN talk show host and current host of "Larry King Now" on Ora TV filed for divorce, but the pair eventually reconciled. 

1010 WINS has reached out to King's personal attorney attorney for comment. 

The couple have been the subject of articles in the tabloid press in recent years, including claims of infidelity. 

Last April King underwent a heart procedure. At the time, Ora TV said he was set to have a scheduled angioplasty when he began experiencing "angina and went to the hospital early to be examined."

He had a heart attack in 1987 and underwent quintuple bypass surgery, which prompted him to quit a lifelong three-pack-a-day cigarette habit and lose weight.
