Two of Larry King’s adult children have died within weeks of each other, according to Fox News.
King’s son, Andy King, 65, passed away within the past few weeks, and his daughter, Chaia King, 51, lost her battle with lung cancer Thursday, according to the News York Post.
King, 86, adopted Andy in 1962 after he married ex-wife Alene Akins. Chaia was born in 1969.

When Akins died in 2017, King tweeted, “So very saddened over the passing of Alene Akins, who died peacefully with our children Chaia and Andy by her side. She was a grand lady.”
“Larry and his three remaining children are distraught, and Larry’s still recovering from his own health issues from last year,” a source told the Post.
The reasoning for Andy King’s death has not yet been publicized.
Additionally, Larry King has not yet spoken publicly on the matter.

King suffered a near-fatal stroke last year.
King has continued to host Ora TV’s “Larry King Now” and recently did two live shows of Hulu’s “Politicking with Larry King,” which is part of his way of “processing” the loss, another source told the Post.
