GARY COLEMAN DIES.
Gary Coleman’s former lawyer claims the actor was divorced from Shannon Price at the time of his death on May 28, People reports. Randy Kester claims the pair’s marriage ended on Aug. 12, 2008, which raises questions about Price’s legal right to take Coleman off life support. “We’re definitely concerned about this and we’re looking into what exactly happened here,” Janet Frank, a spokesperson for the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center — the hospital in which Coleman passed away — told People. “Shannon certainly portrayed herself as his wife to our staff and doctors. We assumed she was telling the truth. We can’t comment on specific details in Mr. Coleman’s case, but in general, any patient on life support is thoroughly evaluated medically before life support is ended.”
Kester claims it is possible that Coleman gave Shannon permission in writing at the hospital to make medical decisions for him. As for Coleman’s family, the actor’s mother told People, “It’s too early for us to comment on this. Of course we’re concerned, but we need to find out more information.” Price could not be reached for comment.
Well, that sure was quick. Gary Coleman only passed away three days ago, but already there’s a tribute app waiting in the Android Market, ready and waiting to provoke little tears in those red-rimmed eyes of yours to spring out.
It’s free, and all the app description has to offer anyone interested in learning more about what the app can offer is the tear-soaked “we’ll miss you Gary.” That clears that up then. But we still don’t know what’choo was talkin’ ‘bout, Willis.
While questions remain unanswered, the app looks like a nice gallery set of stock photos of Coleman, which you can browse through and even choose a wallpaper image from. Someone hand me the Kleenex, please.
