Larry King Wants His Real Estate Back in Divorce

Often when couples split a big point of contention is -- who gets the house? In the case of CNN talk show host Larry King, he apparently used real estate in a desperate attempt to save his faltering marriage to wife number seven.

According to TMZ, King actually transferred all his prime real estate -- including a Beverly Hills mansion and properties in Utah -- to Shawn Southwick two years ago in an effort to prove that he was committed to the union and not having an affair.

Now, according to the gossip Web site, King wants to try and void the agreement as the couple moves toward divorce ... his eighth! (The affair by the way? According to TMZ, it involved Shaun's younger sister, a charge she denies).
