Despite rumors of a possible reconciliation with his wife, Shaun, E! News has learned exclusively that Larry King is holed up in a Beverly Hills hotel and remains committed to his divorce.

"The divorce is full steam ahead," says a source close to the situation.

The source says that Shaun remains in the family's Beverly Hills home with their two children while King has been residing in a hotel about a mile from the home.
