Gary Coleman’s “ex” wife, Shannon Price has officially made it to the media sh*tlist. This broad not only pulled the plug on one of America’s favorite television icons, but a photo of a dead and/or dying Coleman was sold to a media outlet for $10,000, while Shannon claims not to know anything about it.
A statement from Shannon’s rep reads: “Shannon is very hurt by the pictures getting out there.” <~ Yeah right! “HURT” that she couldn’t get more than 10 stacks!
The photo, published this morning by The Globe tabloid magazine, shows Coleman in a hospital bed with a bandaged head and tubes attached to his body while his ex-wife Shannon Price poses next to him.
Price is believed to have sold the pictures to the tabloid for $10,000. The release of Gary’s dying photos is the latest in the bizarre incidents surrounding his death including her actions during the 911 call after his beating FALL and THIS interview where his estranged wife compared him to Mohammed Ali.
Several higher end magazines reportedly refused to buy the tasteless photos before the Globe purchased them.
Gary’s former Diff’rent Strokes co-star, Todd Bridges expressed utter disbelief at the release of the photos. Telling Entertainment Tonight:
“It’s horrible. It’s absolutely horrible,” says Todd to ET’s Kevin Frazier. “And I hope that whoever is responsible for this, and the people that are involved in this, people that are in the pictures, I hope they burn in hell.”
“You shouldn’t have been taking pictures — period — of him in that situation. By doing something like that, you’re disgusting. You have joined the leagues of as many sick people in the world that do sick things. … Having your face in those photos, with someone who is in that position, and with someone you say you love, obviously you don’t love them, because why would you do that? Why would you allow yourself to be put in there and then you say you’re not profiting from it? Well, somebody’s getting that blood money. Somebody’s getting it.”
“Gary would’ve thrown those camera people out of his room,” says Todd. “If Gary had been conscious at that point he would’ve taken those tubes out and said, ‘Get the heck out of my room,’ and thrown them out.”
Asked who he thinks are behind the leaked photos, Todd replies, “Her face is in the photo but she doesn’t know anything about the photos? You know who took darn pic. How are you going to sit there and lie?”
True dat Todd! This broad is certifiable. She’s IN the photos and claims she has no clue? GTFOH…
