Gary Coleman's Parents Decide To Not Fight For His Estate

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

Gary Coleman's parents Sue and Willie Coleman have decided to withdraw their bid of obtaining control over their son's estate.

Their attorney Frederick A. Jackman released this statement:

"From the start, Mr. and Mrs. Coleman’s intention has been to see that Gary’s wishes be honored and that his affairs be taken care of properly. They wanted to do things the right way, and they urge those still involved to do the same. The Colemans ask that everyone please treat Gary with respect and kindness. They feel it is time for him to find peace and let his spirit go."

We're not sure if his estate should be in the hands of his ex-wife Shannon Price either, but according to sources, that's what Gary wanted before he died.

So sad. Still no word on when the funeral will be.

Family Feud Puts Gary Coleman's Funeral On Hold

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.
