Larry King breaks silence after the sudden death of his son and daughter


Larry King took to social media to share an emotional note following the sudden death of his two children.The talk show host’s son Andy, 86, passed away suddenly last week and his daughter Chaia died of lung cancer days later on Thursday this week. She was 51 and her brother Andy 65.

Writing on Facebook, King admitted he was “heartbroken” as he confirmed the sad news, writing, “They were both good and kind souls and they will be sorely missed.”

“Andy died suddenly of a heart attack on July 28, and Chaia died on August 20, shortly after being diagnosed with lung cancer,” Larry continued. “Losing them seems so irrelevant. No parent should have to bury a child. ”

“My family and I thank you for your outpouring of good feelings and good wishes,” Larry concluded. “Right now we need some time and some privacy to heal. Thank you for respecting this.

King shared Chaia with his ex-wife Alene Akins. He adopted Andy, Akins’ son from a previous relationship, after the two got married.

The broadcaster is also father to son Larry King, Jr. with ex-wife Annette Kaye, and sons Cannon and Chance King with ex-wife Shawn King.
