When Gary Coleman died after sitting on a respirator in critical condition following a hemorrhage Shannon Price, Coleman’s ex-wife, posed for a photo that later ended up on the front page of Globe Magazine. Some find it distasteful to see Coleman dying as Price shares a vague smile in the hospital photo. Including Victor Perillo, Coleman’s past agent.
Victor Perillo didn’t beat around the bush when it came to Price. Her answer to his questions surrounding the photos had more holes than Swiss cheese as she claims someone stole them from her camera although other reports suggest Price needed the cash so she sold Coleman’s deathbed photos. Perillo shared on the Joy Behar Show to witness the frontpage photo was disgusting – we agree.
The world according to Shannon Price on the day of her 911 call shocked on a global level as offered through TMZ.
“Blood everywhere” can be heard along with “I’m gagging. I’ve got blood on myself. I can’t deal.”
You knew it was coming. It is rumored that a CSI analyst had to give their two cents on the suspiscious turn of events. A penny for your thought goes a long way – most have not fallen for the “ew, gross” routine. A CSI analyst is in tune with the belief that Coleman was murdered according to a blood sample found.
For comedians it’s priceless. However, for Price it’s a potential pawn shop goldmine. Did Gary’s marriage to Shannon come with a price?
Just when cops thought they’ve seen it all they caught a load of Coleman’s property stuffed into Coleman’s 2005 Dodge pick-up truck preparing for transport to another location. Price’s father agreed to return the items, even though Price already cleaned Coleman out. Santaquin police were asked to change the locks on request of executor Dion Mial according to TMZ. Price was told to return all, and we mean all, of Coleman’s things or face possible charges.
After Coleman died Price asked for financial assistance to help her through her difficult time in burial expenses. Thanks again to TMZ for the piece on Price spending money in Vegas while not preparing for a possible upcoming death like most responsible humans do when taking care of someone with a liver condition.
The Utah roommates still remained together, even though divorced. On July 3, 2009 Shannon Price was arrested for domestic violence according to Daily Herald.
Shannon Price locked Coleman out of the house while ransacking Coleman’s room as Santaquin cops would discover after arriving. Deemed a marriage from hell and a lack of financial planning many can only wonder if Shannon Price is less than an independent woman trying to make ends meat by another hand.
Sure, Gary Coleman’s past is riddled with fortunate and unfortunate decisions. But this is not about the child star’s past. It’s about the present. And most know that true colors come out in moments such as these. If Shannon Price is ever questioned or charged with Coleman’s death we can all hear Coleman’s voice from the ashes.
“What’choo talkin’ ’bout Shannon?”
Coleman and Price secretly married and went out on that same note less than a year later in 2008.
