Another Gary Coleman will has been found and it may change everything, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The new will was drawn up by a lawyer, a source familiar with the situation told RadarOnline.com.
“This is not the handwritten codicil from 2007,” the source said. “This was created by a lawyer and it’s substantially different from the 1999 will.”
The 1999 will named Gary’s ex manager Dion Mial executor. It also benefited him financially via a trust that was set up.
But that will may not be valid. The new will, which has not been produced publicly yet, will certainly trigger a battle over everyone fighting for Gary’s assets.
Although the Diff’rent Strokes actor didn’t appear to have much cash when he died, he did have a valuable pension – a fact pointed out by his co-star Todd Bridges in an exclusive video interview with RadarOnline.com.
Gary’s ex-wife Shannon Price is furious that Mial appears to have control of the estate. The 1999 will leaves her nothing.
The new will may include her but will also have legal issues that could lead to her being cut out.
Under Utah law, if Gary did not specify in divorce papers that he wanted to leave money or property to Price, she may not be entitled to anything.
Price has profited from Gary’s death, selling photos of him in the hospital through an intermediary, taping an interview at home the day after he died, selling that, and then selling off another interview. RadarOnline.com learned she had offers up to $50,000.
“The new will should be filed within a couple of weeks at the latest,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “And then there is going to be an incredible battle over Gary’s estate.”
