As Gary Coleman lay dying, his near-lifeless body hooked up to tubes, Shannon Price posed for a photo with her ex-husband, knowing full well it would be of value.
After she pulled the plug and took him off life support, very little time passed before shockings image "leaked" and ended up sold to a celebrity gossip tabloid.
We can't think of many things more upsetting.
While Price claims that she never intended for the Gary Coleman death photos to get out, that's incredibly hard to believe, since she blatantly posed for them.
It's not like she's given us any reason to think she's above that, either. Instead, from the instant Gary died, Shannon Price has acted like the worst person ever.
Even before she was tied to the Gary Coleman death photo ...
- In somewhat sketchy fashion, she referred to him as her husband many times, even though they legally divorced in 2008 and never remarried
- She was borderline nonchalant when making the 911 call, and declined to drive him to the hospital because she didn't want to be traumatized
- If she wasn't hawking interviews in the aftermath of Coleman's demise, she was feuding with the star's family members over burial plans
Follow the jump to see the photo, published on the cover of the Globe tabloid. Be forewarned, the aforementioned picture of Price and Coleman is sickening ...
It's hard to say what's worse: Shannon Price taking this, or Globe buying it. Both deserve each other - and first class tickets somewhere very warm.
