Larry King went rogue to do an odd interview on the Hallmark Channel in which he dismissed his wife’s cheating scandal as rumor.
The New York Post reported that Larry’s wife, Shawn King, 56, allegedly had a yearlong affair with public-speaking guru Richard Greene.
But insiders told the paper that Larry has been ignoring and avoiding his trusted team of lawyers, agents and publicists in favor of the advice of Shawn and her father-manager, Karl Engemann, during the brouhaha.
Larry’s advisers reportedly only learned about Thursday’s appearance on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” after it was booked by Karl.
During the interview, Larry, 82, brushed off cheating reports as “rumors,” adding, “I don’t pay any attention to them.” His response has baffled his own camp, who are convinced the allegations are true.“
Larry talks and thinks one way around his friends and relatives and legal counsel and people who work with him,” said a pal. “Then he goes home and it’s just her and him, undoing all of the sensible stuff that we’ve told him to do.”
