Larry King’s wife Shawn is contesting his amended will, in new legal documents obtained by ET. The late TV personality wrote an updated will in 2019, leaving his $2 million estate to his five children, two of whom are now deceased. Shawn was not included in the amendment.

The handwritten will, obtained by ET, is dated Oct. 17, 2019; King filed for divorce from Shawn two months earlier, in August 2019, after 22 years of marriage.

King stated in his amended will that he wanted his kids 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.

A source previously told ET that Shawn planned to contest the updated will in court. On Tuesday, she filed her official legal objection, which states that, despite King’s divorce filing, which was never finalized, “Shawn was actively involved in Larry’s career and businesses, was a partner in many of them, and continued in that role up to Larry’s death, and currently. Shawn is the one with the most knowledge of Larry’s businesses, assets and wishes.”
