Larry King lost two children back to back, Chaia and Andy. The 86-year-old TV personality took Facebook to express how heartbroken he was when his children, Chaia, 51, and Andy, 65 passed away with a gap of a week.
“It is with sadness and a father’s broken heart that I confirm the recent loss of two of my children, Andy King, and Chaia King,” Larry wrote. “Both of them were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed.”
“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,” he explained. “Losing them feels so out of order. No parent should have to bury a child. My family and I thank you for your outpouring of kind sentiments and well wishes. At this moment, we need a little time and privacy to heal. I thank you for respecting that.”
Last year, the TV and radio host had gone through severe chest pain and rushed to the hospital. However, he also filed for divorce from Shawn King, who he married for 22 years.
