According to People, Larry's family and children are pissed off by the denial since it only adds to the embarrassment of Shawn's supposed affair with public speaking guru Richard Greene.
An insider explained:
"It was a sham interview. His kids are disgusted and outraged."
As for the "kids" the source is referring to, the icon has five children in total, including a son who is 54-years-old. We suspect the confidante is referencing King's older children, considering his two sons with Shawn are teenagers.
Per the insider's account, L.K.'s loved ones suspect he was influenced by his wife and her father Karl Engemann to deny the cheating:

Larry King's wife Shawn overdosed on pills on May 28 and it was her father Karl Engemann who discovered her unconscious in her Provo, Utah home!
He told the 911 operator:
“She may have overmedicated. I don’t think she did it on purpose. Last night she seemed confused about what she had taken, the last time she had taken it…No, no. No, it wouldn’t be suicidal.
“She’s unconscious. I slap her and I holler at her and she opens her eyes half way and puts them back down again. I left my daughter here last night and she was fine. I come this morning she’s supposed to have a meeting in a while and she just seems to be out of it.”
Engemann didn't know what medication his daughter was taking, but he said it was "something to help with her anxiety and her depression."
Shawn went to rehab in 2008 for an addiction to prescription pain pills.
We hope she's okay!
