Hector Penate -- the tattooed aspiring actor who’s been romantically linked to Larry King’s wife - won’t step up to bat when cameramen ask him to comment on his rumored affair with Shawn Southwick.
A shirtless Penate would only say “I can’t talk about it right now” when he was approached after working out in a West Hollywood park on Thursday.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, King and Southwick each filed for divorce Wednesday, citing “irreconcilable differences,” and accusing each other of cheating: Southwick with Penante, and King with Shawn’s sister, Shannon.
On Thursday night, King and his wife caused quite a stir when they both showed up at one of their son’s baseball games in Beverly Hills. The couple was seen playing hugging each other in front of the cameras and each was still wearing their wedding rings.
