"There's a 50-50 chance this divorce is not happening," King's lawyer, Dennis Wasser, told People magazine. "His focus is on the best interest of his children. It's not clear to me which way he's going to turn on this issue."

In an attempt to work things out, the veteran journalist and his wife reportedly attended a counseling session on Monday. In a separate statement, King's lawyer said, "It was decided that there will be no divorce proceedings for two weeks, as several issues need to be discussed and resolved."

The two were spotted together on Sunday at their son's baseball game, and when asked by paps if he and Shawn were going to reconcile, King replied, "You never know."

King, 76, and Southwick, 50, were married in 1997 and have two young sons.
