Despite plans to have Gary Coleman's body laid to rest this weekend, a family feud between ex-wife Shannon Price and Gary's parents has put the Utah funeral on hold until further notice.

Sue and Willie Coleman are planning on filing an action for legal control over their son's remains and would like to see his body sent to Zion, Illinois, his place of birth.

Their lawyers have stated:

"The Colemans don't want to fight with anyone. They just want to bring their son home."

Gary's agent Sheila Erickson is telling a different story though, saying that the couple have "different plans than what is in Gary's will. It's clear that Shannon is the one that Gary wants to represent him, as she did in the hospital. He didn't mention, at any time, his parents."

Meanwhile, Gary's attorney is saying that "no one's come forward with what appears to be a valid will. He had an old trust prepared, by whom I don't know. Every copy was unsigned. He just simply wouldn't take the time to go and get that done."

It's so sad that even after his death, he's still having so many troubles with family and finances.

    Shame on Gary's parents for suddenly deciding that they want something to do with their son. When the money and tv jobs ran out they ran too..they stole his money over the years and treated him like shit. They admitted that they haven't seen or even talked to him in years, if they really cared and there was a mutual love they would have been there. Scumbags are smelling money again along with a lawsuit you can be sure so now they want his body…bastards!!

    it just sucks that he can't really R.I.P.
    he hasn't talked to his family in so many years.
    obviously he didn't WANT to!

    Just let GC R.I.P. The parents are probably trying to sell the ashes on Ebay.

    Do you think there could be a reality show somewhere in here?

    That's because the parents want to bury him in the family coffin, a Coleman cooler.
