American talk show legend Larry King has suffered double tragedy as two of his children have died within weeks of each other.

The 86 year old broadcasting giant has five children in total – but his son Andy is said to have passed away two weeks ago aged 65, while his daughter Chaia died on Thursday aged 51. Andy is said to have passed away “suddenly”, while Chaia is said to have been “battling a chronic illness” in the run up to her death.

Larry adopted Andy when he married third wife, Alene Akins, in 1961 – although the talk show host divorced this wife in 1963, only to reconcile and remarry several years later.

A source close to the family said, “Larry and his three remaining children are distraught, and Larry’s still recovering from his own health issues from last year. Larry himself suffered a stroke last year.He did two live shows [of Hulu’s “Politiking with Larry King”]. It’s his way of processing.”

Larry and his late daughter published a children’s book titled ‘Daddy Day, Daughter Day,’ together in 1997 to share their experiences of being a father and daughter from a divorced marriage.

Larry has a 58-year-old son named Larry King Jr from his second marriage to Annette Kaye which lasted only months in 1961. He also has a 21-year-old son named Chance and 20-year-old son named Cannon from his eighth marriage to Shawn Southwick – who he filed for divorced from in August last year.
