According to People Magazine, King has "unequivocally" denied the allegations.
In a statement issued by King, he said, "Larry King flatly and unequivocally denies these claims and intends to file suit and prove that they're utterly false."
On Monday, Terry Richard, the ex-wife of singer Eddie Fisher, said in an interview with a leading UK daily that King groped her in 2005, saying that he slipped his hand down the back of her backless dress while they were posing for a picture together and that, on another occasion, groped her butt so forcefully that it left a bruise.
Sources say that King's team warned the daily last week that he would sue if the story was published.
An attorney for King sent a denial letter to the publication, which read, "We represent Larry King. I am informed that you intend to publish a statement by a woman named Terry Richards that, 10 or more years ago, Mr. King supposedly 'groped' her at one or more baseball dinners. That assertion is entirely and unequivocally false and defamatory. Mr. King did no such thing then or ever. Your publishing this false and defamatory statement will be actionable and highly damaging."
While Terry claims the incidents happened nearly 12 years ago, she says it continues to have an impact on her life even today. (ANI)
