Gary Coleman Divorced Before Death

Gary Coleman was not married to Shannon Price at the time of his death.

Despite Shannon making the decision to turn off the actor's life support machine when he died last Friday (28.05.10), the pair had been divorced since August 2008.

Attorney Randy Kester, who handled the split, said: "I can confirm they've been divorced since August 12, 2008. At the time of Gary's death, they were not married.

"I have no knowledge if they were ever remarried. Gary wanted me to keep the divorce private but now that it's been made public, I'm compelled to say it's all true.

"Their relationship has been on-again, off-again. I know that there were periods of time where she resided in the home with Gary, and there were periods of time where she didn't."

The revelations have called into question whether or not 24-year-old Shannon had the decision making power to turn off the machine on Gary's behalf.

Utah Valley Regional Medical Center - where Gary died - released a statement claiming they had undertaken all necessary rules to check Shannon's legal rights.

It read they "had completed an Advance Health Care Directive that granted Shannon Price permission to make medical decisions on his behalf".

Gary's mother Sue - who had been estranged from the 'Diff'rent Strokes' star for 15 years - confessed she was concerned at the developments.

She said: "It's too early for us to comment on this. Of course we're concerned, but we need to find out more information."

Gary will likely be buried tomorrow (04.06.10) or Saturday (05.06.10).
