Following his death , Southwick King , 61, said the broadcasting legend died from a sepsis infection "unrelated" to his coronavirus diagnosis.

“COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death . Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc.,” the guidance continued. “If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II.” Author and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, one of the few well-known figures to question some of the statistics on COVID-19

Days after King's death, his seventh wife Shawn Southwick, whom he married in 1997 and was in the midst of a divorce with at the time of his death, said that he had died of sepsis after he was unable to overcome an infection.

She told Entertainment Tonight: 'It was an infection, it was sepsis. Well, he was finally ready to go, I will tell you that.

'You know, he never wanted to go but his sweet little body was just, it had just been hit so many times with so many things and once we heard the word Covid, all of our hearts just sank.

'But he beat it, you know, he beat it, but it did take its toll and then the unrelated infection finally is what took him, but boy, he was not gonna go down easily.'

The real history behind Queen Charlotte in 'Bridgerton,' who some say was Britain's first Black royal

  The real history behind Queen Charlotte in 'Bridgerton,' who some say was Britain's first Black royal The actress who plays Queen Charlotte in "Bridgerton" says portraying her as Black is "empowering." The show has generally been lauded for selecting a diverse cast to play royals and aristocrats. It leans into the theory that Charlotte came from a Black branch of the Portuguese royal family.

Netflix's Regency drama "Bridgerton" is the streaming giant's biggest original series to date, having already been watched by 82 million households worldwide since it premiered on December 25, 2020.

Causes of death on the death certificate represent a medical opinion that might vary among individual physicians. A properly com­ pleted cause - of - death section provides an etiologic explanation of the or­ der, type, and association of events resulting in death . The initial condition that starts the etiologic sequence is specific if it does not leave any doubt as to why it developed. For example, sepsis is not specific because a number of different conditions may have resulted in sepsis , whereas hu­ man immunodeficiency virus syndrome is specific.

Death certificates must indicate the primary cause of death . Eg Ruptured liver cause “hit by car”. So it’ s possible that more doctors are putting pollution or air quality as the causes of deaths . This shouldnt cause outrage. Putting pollution as a cause of death is just unprofessional. It will read 'respitory failure due to adverse atmospheric conditions' or something similar. Writing 'pollution' instead would be the equivilent of writing 'club' instead of 'blunt force trauma to back of head'.

Southwick said she was thankful she was able to speak with King, the father of her sons Chance, 21, and Cannon, 20, on video call before his death.

She also revealed his last words to her, telling her over a video call from hospital: ‘I love you, take care of the boys'.

THE HIGH-PROFILE ROMANCES AND UNSUCCESSFUL MARRIAGES OF LARRY KING

Larry was known for his string of high-profile romances and unsuccessful marriages, eight in total to seven different women.

In his 1982 autobiography, Larry King described himself as a great date, but a lousy husband. Part of his problem was due to an abiding need to be seen with models and celebrated beauties.

1. FREDA MILLER (1952-1953; annulled)

King's first walk down the aisle was with his high school sweetheart Freda Miller at 18, but the union was annulled the following year at the behest of her parents.

2. ANNETTE KAYE (1961-1961)

King then married his second wife, Annette Kaye in 1961 but they separated within months.

Their relationship was brief but fruitful and resulted in a son that King didn't meet until 33 years later.

'I knew there was a Larry King Jr out there, I'd heard that, but I didn't know he was mine. The marriage was very short and she told me if it's a boy, I'm gonna name him Larry King Jr,' explained the elder King to The New York Post in 2009. 'Then I never heard again.'

3. ALENE AKINS (1961-1963) (1967-1972)

In 1976 King tied the knot with a former math teacher and production assistant named Sharon Lepore.

The union lasted seven years, making it King's second longest marriage to date.

Two years into the marriage King declared bankruptcy, owing more than $300,000. He and Sharon were divorced in 1982.

He remained single for a long stretch of six years between his sixth and seventh marriage to Philadelphia-based businesswoman Julie Alexander.

In the summer of 1989, King met Julie  and proposed on the very first date. They married three months later, were separated by 1990 and formally divorced two years later. 'I love being in love,' he told Anderson Cooper in a 2009 interview.

7. SHAWN SOUTHWICK (1997-2019)

In 1997, King married his seventh and last wife, Shawn Southwick - a singer, actress and TV host that was 26-years his junior.

The couple married in a Los Angeles hospital room three days before King underwent heart surgery to clear a clogged blood vessel. They welcomed two sons, Chance, born March 1999, and Cannon, born May 2000.

On their tenth wedding anniversary in 2007, Southwick joked that she was 'the only wife to have lasted into the two digits.' Three years later, the couple filed for divorce in 2010 after Shawn had an affair with her son's much younger baseball coach. At the same time, rumors were swirling that King was having an affair with Shawn's sister, which both parties vehemently denied.

The couple reconciled but eventually called it quits after 22-years of marriage in August 2019. Southwick said she was 'totally blind sighted' by King's bombshell court filing.
