Coleman Sells Underwear

A cash shortage has forced former child star GARY COLEMAN to resort to selling his underwear on Internet auction site eBay. Coleman shot to fame in U.S. sitcom Diff'rent Strokes at the age of 10, but his acting career dried up after the show ended in 1986, and he has had little more than bit parts ever since. The 39-year-old - who commanded $70,000 (GBP35,000) an episode at the height of his fame - is now said to be struggling to pay for dialysis treatment following his two kidney transplant operations, according to MediaTakeOut.com. Coleman is allegedly attempting to raise money by selling his possessions online. His advert in eBay reads, "Here are a pair of Gap Athletic Pants that Gary Coleman wore. He signed the back pocket. The pants are from Gap Kids the Size is XL 12 Regular. "This pair would be perfect for any child who loves Gary or for anyone who loves his memorabilia. Here is a great gift to have. I also have more memorabilia so please check into my Site often."
