London (ANI): American TV host Larry King has called for a two-week truce with his seventh wife Shawn Southwick with regard to their divorce. The couple talked it out with a counsellor and now King"s lawyer Dennis Wasser has said that there is a '50-50' chance of the divorce not taking place.
"Larry and Shawn met with a counselor today. It was decided that there will be no divorce activity for two weeks as several issues need to be discussed and resolved," The New York Daily News quoted Wasser as saying. In an interview with People.com, Wasser said that King's "focus is on the best interest of his children. It's not clear to me which way he's going to turn on this issue."
King and Southwick have two children, Chance, 11, and Cannon, 9. According to TMZ, the couple filed for separate divorce lawsuits after King was accused of sleeping with Southwick"s 46-year-old sister Shannon Engemann. But the pair was seen enjoying their son"s baseball game, embracing each other and displaying a similar affection at a Little League game.
According to TMZ, on being asked about reconciliation King said, "you never know." Engemann denied having an affair with King in an interview with the New York Daily News. "I did not have and am not having an affair with Larry. He's been nothing but sweet to me and my entire family," she said. "I've been blamed for this and it's just not fair. I love my sister, but I'm not the problem here," Engemann said.
