According to the report, insiders say that he believed his beautiful wife Shawn King has been faithful to him all these years.
However, Larry just got to know about the betrayal after a news tabloid The National Enquirer contacted his representative for comment.
Shockingly, an insider told Page Six that 56-year-old Shawn met the man when he was a guest on the podcast she makes with her husband, “Back and Forth with Shawn and Larry.”
“He’s heartbroken,” a friend of Larry’s told Fox News. “He’s embarrassed and furious.”
The source added Shawn was still living with Larry as of Wednesday when news of her flirty relationship broke out.
Though the 82-year-old seasoned broadcaster is yet to make a decision on whether to file for divorce or not, the Enquirer reported on Wednesday that is has confirmation on the alleged extra-marital affair.
The Enquirer reported the same day that Shawn had sent nude pictures and had “steamy afternoon sex sessions” with her boy toy.
“All options are being considered,” said Larry’s pal. “Nothing has been ruled out.”
Asking for divorce may be the best thing for Larry but according to the insider, it would mean nothing to Shawn. She’s said to have prepared for worse while the extra-marital affair lasted.
The source said: ‘Shawn was ready to divorce Larry for this guy, but the guy was hesitant about it.’
‘Their marriage has effectively been over since around 2010 and that the couple sleep in separate rooms in their Beverly Hills home’, the insider adds.
‘They just show up for appearances. She loves being Mrs. Larry King and the travel.
‘She stays with him for the kids’ sake.’
Shawn and Larry King have two teenage sons but the couple’s relationship has been rocky for some years now, reports confirm.
“He’s 82 years old, he’s survived cancer twice, heart surgery and he’s diabetic.
“When this came out last week, some of us were actually happy, hoping this will finally mean that he can live his life in some sort of peace, should they decide to divorce,” the insider said.

Notwithstanding all the rumored pain and shame, lawyers for Larry and Shawn have called the Enquirer story “inaccurate.”
‘Richard Greene — dubbed “the master of charisma” by the Sunday Times of London, and whose website lists the aforementioned stars as customers — has also appeared as a talking head on endless TV news reports. And the National Enquirer — which broke the story of the affair, but didn’t name Greene — claims that Shawn is trying to groom him as “the next Larry King.”’—Page Six.
