Shannon Price: I Didn't Kill Gary Coleman!

by at . Comments

Gary Coleman's ex-wife Shannon Price is speaking out, defending her actions the day of his eventually fatal fall as well as her decision to take him off life support.

Calling Coleman her spouse - even though they were secretly divorced - Price tells TMZ indignantly: "Why would I want to kill my husband? Are you kidding me?"

Strangely, Price said that she's heard speculation that she pushed Gary, which caused him to fall and his brain to hemorrhage. Price insists she didn't push Gary.

As she said during the Gary Coleman 911 call, Shannon adds that the two of them were on different floors at the time he fell, so how could she have pushed him?

An odd statement, since no one has actually accused her of this.

Shannon Price married the former child star in 2007 and divorced him in 2008. She adamantly denies pushing Gary Coleman, which no one suggested happened.

Of her decision to pull the plug on the life support machines keeping Coleman alive, Shannon says she didn't want Gary to be like Muhammad Ali or Terri Schiavo.

"The doctors told me that even if they had done surgery on him, he would have bled to death and died during surgery ... if they took a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same. He would be like Muhammad Ali."

"It would have been so traumatic."

She wants us to put ourselves in her position. Admittedly, it's a position no one should ever have to endure, yet something about her conduct seems a little off.

On a happier note, Shannon Price fondly mentions that Gary Coleman did a lot for her, like buy her a car. Of his own volition. That was, like, really nice of him.


He wasn't on the same floor as her BECAUSE she pushed him. @charlotte She did have a lot to gain from his death. She sold photo's of his dying body for money, tried to alter his will, fought for his life insurance, and the only reason she stuck around is because she couldn't support herself.


To be honest it is funny that she started saying that she did not push him wen no 1 ask . and second of all, he did not have any money , BUT he could had a giant life insurance , i understand that she may of been selling the pictures so she could get money for his funeral , but what type of person waits 24 hours to show's people pictures of some 1 they love dying after they die , usually takes people days to even talk about their love ones that die . but it shocks me just by looking at her picture next to him wen his on life support shows how much she so call LOVES HIM >>>


I think calling her a gold digger is a stretch, and murder is a giant leap. First off, as someone else said, they're technically divorced so with exception of his will, she would have not much to gain. More importantly, there was no money anyway, Coleman was not a rich guy, he hasn't been acting for years and his money from childhood was stolen by crooked hollywood types. Thats why she's been selling photos and interviews, do you know how expensive it is to die in the United States these days? Last, there was talk of them getting remarried, and she was apparently living with him, so even their divorce was questionable. She's actually the opposite of that Kanye West song, yknow, I ain't saying shes a gold digger but she aint going with no broke n*gga. Well, she did, and he was broke, at that.


As Jack McCoy on Law and Order would say on the facts just do not add up. The 911 call is just puzzling she was way to calm and she did nothing to help.


The whole thing smells funny to me!! I didn't even know he was married for a year to this weirdo. She doesn't have much to gain but who knows of her true intentions.


something doesn't "smell" right is all I have to say. Her concern sounds like "crappy acting" on the call. I am not accusing anyone of anything - but somethin ain't right!!!


Very strange girl, she seems mentally challenged. I think M. Ali is probably very glad hes alive and loved by his family.


Gary Coleman has had medical problems for many years. I don't believe she did anything wrong. I think things just happened very sudden. I'm sure there will be an autopsy , that will tell what happened. Until then, I'm staying out of it.


Just her declaring, "I didn't kill my husband," sounds a little too quick to jump to the defense to me, unless she has already been relentlessly hounded by the press. Look at it this way. She married him. She divorced him in just one year, secretly. Now, she hastily makes the decision to take him off life support only because she thinks he'll end up lik Ali or Terry Schiavo. So does this mean that she "doesn't want to be seen" with someone like Ali or Schiavo. What about this? Was she concerned about being seen with a midget? Here's what I think. I think she's a gold digger who saw that Gary Coleman was an easy prey. She probably literally sucked the life blood out of him. In closing, I'm going to ask this question again. Why would she hide the fact that she was divorced if she wasn't up to anything sinister.


Well, what exactly would she have to gain from killing him? they are divorced, so, she had nothing to gain from it.
after hearing her 911 call and everything about the situation, it did cross my mind that she pushed him...but it makes no sense. they divorced, yet she stuck around for some reason...
doesn't seem to me that they were on bad terms if that was the case.
