Bridges: 'Coleman Suffered At The End'

Tragic GARY COLEMAN's TV brother TODD BRIDGES knew his DIFF'RENT STROKES co-star was heading for an early death - because he was in terrible shape after heart surgery earlier this year (10).
Bridges revealed Coleman underwent surgery to replace a faulty valve during a recent interview on news show Entertainment Tonight, and now, on the eve of the star's funeral in Utah this weekend (04-05Jun10), the actor-turned-reality TV star has opened up about the extent of his friend's health troubles.
He says, "Every single day he was fighting for his life... He could barely breathe, he doesn't walk well, he has trouble focusing... He was tired, man."
Coleman died a week ago (28May10) after suffering a brain haemorrhage following a fall at his home.
