Members of the entertainment industry are paying tribute to Larry King, who passed away Saturday at the age of 87.

Over the weekend, the legendary host’s Twitter page released a statement announcing that King had died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after testing positive for COVID-19.

In an interview with The Post, King’s sixth wife Julia Alexander said the journalist did, in fact, pass away from the coronavirus.

“I talked to him in the hospital this past week, so I knew his time was short,” Alexander said. “He was extremely weak. I just said, ‘Larry, I am thinking about you. Everybody is rooting for you.’ He just couldn’t even talk. He was really very weak.”

After the tragic news broke, several stars, including Ryan Seacrest, Céline Dion and Oprah Winfrey, honored King on social media.

On Saturday, King’s sons, Larry King Jr., Chance King and Cannon King, issued a joint statement about their father’s passing.

“We are heartbroken over our father’s death, and together with our extended family mourn his passing,” they wrote.

Last year, King lost his son Andy, 65, to a heart attack and daughter Chaia, 51, to lung cancer.

Our condolences go out to King’s family and loved ones for their loss.
