Shannon Price Seeking Gary Coleman’s Estate Claiming She Was His Common-Law Wife
Gary Coleman’s ex-wife, who would think would be grief-stricken at this time, has filed legal papers seeking to gain control of Coleman’s estate. Read more on this story below!
Shannon Price has filed legal documents to try and gain control of Gary Coleman’s estate, insisting that she was his common-law wife.
Price says she wants to take care of things such as the “disposition of the body”.
Shannon says she was Gary’s common-law wife because they shared a home in Utah, had joint bank accounts, and filed joint tax returns.
The legal documents filed by Price stated: “Shannon and the decedent (Coleman) continued to have a romantic relationship and engage in romantic and sexual relations.”
Price, who divorced Gary in 2008, is also challenging the executor’s (Dion Mial’s) orders to keep her from her marital home claiming that she was awarded the home in “a sealed decree of divorce”.
Price, 24, has provided a document from 2007, that was allegedly handwritten by Gary declaring Shannon as the “sole heir of any and all monies, properties, bank accounts, earnings, model trains, vehicles, cars, toys, games, electronics, homes, other inheritances if any, all things physical and/or intellectual.”
