Entertainment gossip source TMZ is reporting that there is real meat behind the ‘Gary Coleman death photos’ search trend. Unfortunately, according to TMZ, there will soon be photos of Gary Coleman circulating. Photos taken shortly before Gary Coleman’s death, while he was in the hospital, suffering from massive head trauma.
TMZ says that they found out Shannon Price is reportedly behind the so-called Gary Coleman death photos. And this is really creepy: Shannon Price, ex-wife of Gary Coleman and the person who called 911 after the “Diff’rent Strokes” actor fell in his Utah home, apparently had a photo shoot of sorts set up bedside in Gary Coleman’s hospital room following his accident. There were several photos taken right before Gary Coleman’s death, and reportedly one taken after Coleman died.
These Gary Coleman death photos, which TMZ says they declined. The gruesome photos were originally shopped to them by an unnamed source for an asking price of “five figures”. It is obvious the Gary Coleman hospital and death photos were allegedly set up by, and being sold on behalf of, Shannon Price. Gary Coleman’s ex-wife stands to make a good cut of the sale of the morbid photos. The Gary Coleman death photos will likely be hitting newsstands in the next week or so, though it is still unknown who purchased them.
The sad part of the Gary Coleman death photos controversy is it seems Shannon Price, who acted so disgusted on the 911 tape and who wouldn’t apply pressure to Gary Coleman’s ultimately fatal wound, had the power to pull the plug on the actor’s life support efforts. Arguably, it seems that instead of doing research and getting second opinions on Gary’s condition and struggling over the decisions to be made, Ms. Price was chatting up production companies and negotiating the Gary Coleman death photos deal before Coleman had even died. Isn’t this all getting to be a bit fishy at this point?
Shannon Price was the only person around when Gary Coleman fell. Shannon Price and Gary Coleman had a history of domestic violence. Shannon Price stands to make profit from photos of her dying ex-husband, even as she apparently has ultimate say-so over life-saving or life-supporting measures. Gary Coleman hasn’t even been buried yet, and Shannon is mourning her late love by selling pictures of him at his worst, on death’s door. These are all just facts; take them as you will. Be forewarned if you choose to see them when they are released: the Gary Coleman death photos are said to be quite unpleasant and sad to see. Sadder still when you realize their context: a mid-death photo shoot for the very purpose of selling them after death. By the person who pulled the plug. Creeeeepy.
