The two filed for divorce yesterday citing "irreconcilable differences," and if the celeb gossip blogs are to be believed these "differences" appear to be, more specifically, "rampant infidelity" from both parties.
TMZ is reporting that Southwick believes King has been have a five-year affair with her sister, Shannon Engemann. (Good god, I hope this isn't true.) And PopEater is claiming that Southwick has had her own share of affairs -- one with an employee of King's, and another with the baseball coach of her and Larry's son.
King and Southwick have been married for 12 years, and have two sons together -- 11-year-old Chance and Cannon, 9. He's asking the court for joint custody of their two kids and to deny Southwick any spousal support; she's asking for primary physical custody as well as spousal and child support.
And I'm asking that these two adults put the kibosh on all the nasty, gossipy rumors of affairs and infidelity -- at least for the kids' sake.
What do you think of King and Southwick's messy split?
