Larry King is old as hell and will die with a wife less than one third his age. I honestly can't believe this happened, but apparently when Larry King was with his wife Shawn Southwick, 26 years his junior, and after having two sons together, she left him for cheating on her... with her little sister.

She'd heard about this in the National Enquirer, but then there was also a rumor going around that Shawn had been cheating on Larry with a baseball coach. Sooo, they eventually made up for the good of the family and never got actually divorced. 

What a happy ending.

Pitt was married to Aniston when he began filming the 2005 film Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Jolie. He divorced Aniston that same year and immediately took up a relationship with Jolie. The British magazine The Sun claimed that Pitt and Jolie had been checking into hotels together while Pitt was still a married man.
