In disturbing news, a sequence of Gary Coleman photos depicting the former child star in the hospital last month are being shopped to celebrity news outlets.
In one photo, Coleman is dead. In another, his eyes are closed and he is on a ventilator. It's as sad as it is pathetic that someone took and is trying to sell it.
That person? None other than Shannon Price, the ex-wife of the troubled 42-year-old actor, and the one who made the decision to take him off life support.
Her asking price is low five figures, and if someone pays that, or anything, we suggest they pack lightly and join Price where she's going soon - it's warm.
Ever since the release of the Gary Coleman 911 call last week, Price has come under intense scrutiny - and now wants up to $50,000 for interviews as well.
Gary Coleman and Shannon Price wed in 2007 and divorced in 2008. They never remarried, but reconciled and were living together at the time of his May 28 death.
Supposedly, Shannon is even offering to give - for the right price - a video tour of the house and where they lived, and where Gary suffered his ultimately fatal fall.
At first, we didn't believe Shannon Price was the person hawking the death photo. But that was our mistake - she's never seemed like a girl who wouldn't do that.
If you recall, Price sold a video interview within 24 hours of his death, denying that she had a role in his fall (which no one suggested) or that she wanted him dead.
This situation is growing increasingly weird, if not suspicious. Since then, she has reportedly tried to sell additional interviews at increasingly high prices. Sickening.
UPDATE, 1:49 p.m. EST: Three of the four pictures of Gary Coleman's final moments among the living have been sold to a tabloid, but not the actual death photo.
The four photos, which Gary's ex-wife orchestrated, may hit stands as early as this week. In one pic, Shannon poses next to a bedridden Gary, riddled with tubes.
Shannon will get a cut of the profits. Disgusting.
