"Larry King and his wife, Shawn, have both filed petitions to dismiss their divorce papers," spokesman Howard Rubenstein said in a statement.

King had filed for divorce and had been seeking joint custody of their two children, but in May the couple reconciled and decided not to move forward with the divorce.
