DON KING SPOUSE A RECLUSE FOR DECADESSan Francisco, CA- When she passed away a couple of years ago from Alzheimer’s disease, Henrietta King, wife of boxing promoter and former Cleveland numbers (illegal lottery) Don King, was a truly a woman of mystery. Word has it that Henrietta, the mother of Carl King who is Don’s stepson, was married to one of Don’s competitors. After his passing, King and Henrietta were married. Some have hinted it was a “business” relationship at first that blossomed into their getting married.
HENRIETTA NOT SEEN IN PUBLIC MUCH
Like the “old school” mob guys who avoided media attention, I met Mrs. King once while in her native Cleveland, OH 15 or 20 years ago
