Larry King’s divorce from seventh wife Shawn appears to be moving forward after it emerged that their family home, a Beverly Hills mansion, is up for sale for $17 million. 

The luxurious home is said to be on the market to move the divorce process along smoothly and for the couple to reach a settlement as quick as possible. 

When the couple moved in to the 9,696 sq ft mansion on glitzy North Hillcrest Road in the heart of Beverly Hills in 2017, the mansion cost $12 million.

The pair could be looking to earn $5 million and have listed the property with realtor Kurt Rappaport.

On a table at the back is a fun life-like Barbie doll style figurine of Shawn set in a glass case and a smaller wax figure of Larry sitting next to it.

A huge gong punctuates the foyer – presumably an impressive tool to welcome dinner guests.

The family room boasts a pristine grand piano with a tiny children’s piano next to it.

The eyes are drawn to a main book shelf, which has photos of Larry and Shawn together and another of the entire family and sheet music for Frank Sinatra’s hit song ‘The Way You Look Tonight’.

Shawn says the tune is ‘Larry and Shawn’s song.’
