Larry King’s wife Shawn is in talks with high-powered divorce attorney Robert Kaufman, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Kaufman made a house call on Thursday, meeting with Shawn at the Beverly Hills home she shares with her talk-show host husband.
Kaufman spoke to RadarOnline.com at the house and said that the situation is “sensitive” right now and that Shawn was at home with her two sons. He confirmed that he has been hired to represent her.
Shawn is gearing up for what could be a nasty divorce and custody battle, RadarOnline.com learned.
Kaufman has handled plenty of high-profile custody battles and divorces; he represented actress Roseanne Barr in her divorce from third husband, Ben Thomas, last March, which included custody of their 6-year-old son.
Both Larry and Shawn filed for divorce on Wednesday. Cheating accusations and physical altercation charges are already flying in this divorce.
