Larry King's wife Shawn has claimed that she was blindsided by his request for a divorce. But photos obtained by RadarOnline.com of her ignoring her talk-show legend husband after his April release from the hospital foreshadowed their shaky relationship.

As Radar revealed, Larry's hospital stay earlier this year turned out to be way more serious than first reported. Back then, his family released a statement saying the 85-year-old underwent surgery on April 25 after suffering angina, a type of chest pain that reduces blood flow.

“His doctor successfully performed the angioplasty and inserted stents to reopen the previous bypass from 1987,” the statement read. “He did not have a heart attack and he did not go into cardiac arrest.”

But a pal of Shawn's has contended that was a lie.

“They covered up what happened, but he had a heart attack,” Lisa Stanley, radio host on Los Angeles’ K-Earth 101, and close friend of Shawn’s, said on-air on Wednesday, August 21. ““He’s really ill.”

Stanley said that Shawn, 59, has been taking care of him, and that the divorce request was a shock to Larry's wife.

But scroll through Radar's gallery, which appears to tell a different story about Shawn's attitude towards her much older husband.
