No Family Ties Between Robert And Stephen King

They only share the same last name!

Robert King, the writer and producer, and his wife and writing partner, Michelle King, are not related to Stephen King.

Key Takeaways

  • Robert King and Michelle King, the writers and producers behind acclaimed shows like “The Good Wife” and “Evil,” are not related to the legendary horror author Stephen King, despite sharing the same last name.
  • Stephen King’s family history is well-documented. His parents are Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King and Donald Edwin King, and his only sibling is an adopted brother, David Victor King.
  • While the possibility of a distant familial connection cannot be entirely ruled out, there is no evidence to suggest a direct relationship between the Kings of television and the King of horror fiction.

Although they share the same surname, the legendary film and television writers dont have any familial connection.

Stephen only has one sibling, brother David Victor, who was adopted by his parents in 1945.

Why? Well, King’s mother, Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King, was diagnosed as infertile, and his birth was nothing sort of a miracle.

On the other hand, there is no information about Robert King’s siblings, indicating he might be a single child.

Hence, we can conclude that the brilliant writers are not connected whatsoever.

One person shared his opinion on Quora, saying,

“After doing a quick search, I can find no familial relationship between Robert and Stephen. I know they are not brothers, at least. It’s possible they could be distant cousins or something, but if there is a connection, it is not apparent to me.”

Similarly, another guy followed up,

“There is zero relation to Robert and Michelle King, the writers/producers of Evil, but definitely see where people get this idea, just with the last name and a well put together. One would actually want there to be a relation.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Robert King married Michelle Stern in 1987 and had a daughter, Sophia. He met his wife in 1983 when, as a senior at UCLA, she worked part-time at FrontRunners athletic shoe store.
  • Stephen King wedded Tabitha Spruce, a novelist and philanthropist, on January 2, 1971, and they have three children.
  • Stephen’s father left him and his mother when he was two years old.
