PREACH IT! More drama stemming from the sad death of Gary Coleman
The sad opera that is Gary Coleman’s life continues after his death. The latest news once again involves Coleman’s sort-of-ex-maybe-also-future-wife Shannon Price. Per Radar -- and, really, when it comes to Coleman, where else would we be seeing this stuff? -- Coleman took out a “secret restraining order” against Price back in February.
According to the document, an unwelcome Price had muscled back into Coleman’s house during a period when he was hospitalized. Since then, the document reads, Price "has shown a tendency to damage, destroy and steal my property and I believe she will continue to do so in my absence and while she is trespassing in my home." The filing went on to ask that Price be evicted from the house and kept away.
The restraining order was granted in February but never served on Price, who has insisted via her agent that the two loved each other and were close before Coleman died.
What does Price have to say about all this? Given her penchant for public statements -- usually with lots of exclamation points -- we suspect we’ll know soon enough.
