Attorney says Gary Coleman, wife divorced in 2008

SALT LAKE CITY — An attorney for former child TV star Gary Coleman says he and his wife were divorced in 2008.

Randy Kester tells The Associated Press that Coleman and Shannon Price divorced in August 2008 and Coleman never told him that the two had remarried.

Coleman died Friday at the age of 42 after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was taken off life support, but it’s not clear who made that decision. Kester says he does not know.

Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank told AP that she cannot release any additional information about Coleman’s death.

Price can be heard on a recording of a 911 call from May 26 asking a dispatcher to send help for Coleman, who she says fell and got a head wound at their Santaquin home.
