Gary Coleman‘s death certificate has been released following an autopsy, with the late actor’s death officially ruled “accidental” following a “fall.” While this is good news for Coleman’s ex-wife Shannon Price (pictured right), considering the attention she received for cutting off his life support, it doesn’t get her any closer to the Diff’rent Strokes star’s estate—something she clearly wants control of (Coleman is erroneously listed as “married” on the death certificate—Price’s doing?). Though ex-manager Dion Mial, named in a 1999 will, has backed out of a legal battle with Price, Coleman’s former girlfriend Anna Gray (pictured left) has come forward as the executor of a 2005 will. Though Coleman allegedly left Gray for Price, the latter’s divorce from the actor likely means she has less of a claim on the estate—and Gray is filing a restraining order to keep Price from taking more of Coleman’s stuff than she already has.
“[Price] is invading Gary’s home and disposing of his property,” said Anna Gray’s lawyer. “Nothing is left in the home beyond Gary’s bed and his clothing. She has taken all his personal papers, evidence and other belongings. That is completely disrespectful and a further indication of what her objectives are.” Though police have reportedly convinced Price to return most of the material, a judge is set to weigh on in the matter later today, hopefully deciding which woman has the right to Coleman’s affairs.
