The two were married back in 1997, and have two sons together. In the filing, reported first by TMZ , King cites "irreconcilable differences."

Southwick is a former actress, having appeared in shows such as Who's the Boss and The A-Team, and a part-time country music singer. Southwick was on record back in 2007, bragging that out of King's seven wives she was the only one to make into "double digits."

If you're wondering how seven wives turn into eight divorces, the secret is that King married and divorced the same woman twice: Alene Akins.
