Famed broadcaster Larry King has been through a near-fatal stroke, heart surgery for a stent, and an eighth divorce.
But perhaps the cruelest blow came just this summer, when two of his five children died within weeks of each other.
Andy King, 65, died on July 28, and Chaia King died about three weeks later, on Aug. 20, at age 51.
“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,” he said in a statement posted to social media Saturday. “Both of them were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed.”
