A handwritten note said to be the will of late American TV host Larry King has been discovered and it contains how the media personality wanted his fortunes to be distributed among his five children.
The 87-year-old legendary journalist died on Saturday, January 23, after he struggled for months with COVID-19 complications.
TMZ reported that Larry's last will was written on October 17, 2019, two months after he filed for divorce from his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick, whom he married in 1977.
Larry demanded that 100% of his fortune should be equally divided among his five children.
"This is my last will and testament. It should replace all previous writings. In the event of my death, any day after the above date, I want 100% of my funds to be divided equally among my children. Andy, Chaia, Larry Jnr, Chance, and Cannor."
Unfortunately, he lost two of his children Andy and Chaia in 2020.
He shared the news of their deaths on his IG page:
"Andy passed away unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 28th, and Chaia passed on August 20th, only a short time after having been diagnosed with lung cancer."
