Just like his questions, Larry King’s will was short and to the point.

Larry King wanted to make sure his children would be taken care of after his death.

In a handwritten will obtained by PEOPLE, King requested that his estate be split equally among his five children: sons Larry King Jr., 59, Cannon, 20, and Chance, 21, as well as late son Andy and late daughter Chaia.

“This is my Last Will & Testament,” the document stated. “It should replace all previous writings. In the event of my death, any day after the above date I want 100% [placed above illegible cross-out] of my funds to be divided equally among my children Andy, Chaia, Larry Jr., Chance & Cannon.”

The document was dated Oct. 17, 2019 — two months after he filed for divorce from his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King. (In 2010, King filed for divorce from Southwick King only to retract the paperwork three months later. King filed for divorce again in 2019, after almost 22 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.)

The will was also written less than a year before his children Andy and Chaia died within 23 days apart from each other in the summer of 2020.

According to the documents, King’s estate is worth $2 million. Larry Jr. also requested to be appointed administrator of the estate, noting that his father was involved in ongoing divorce proceedings at the time of his death.

It was also reported that Larry King had a few underlying conditions that led to his death on Jan. 23 at age 87. The Larry King Live host also had two underlying conditions that led to sepsis, including acute hypoxic respiratory failure – meaning he did not have enough oxygen in his blood – and end stage renal disease also known as kidney failure.
