She lost her ex-husband and now she has lost their home too.
RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal Gary Coleman’s on-again, off-again ex-wife Shannon Price has been locked out of the home they once shared, as the battle over the late star’s assets turns nasty.
Price’s agent Sheila Erickson told RadarOnline.com the 24-year-old‹ who has been accused of colluding in plans to sell death bed photos of the former child star- is devastated at the turn of events.
She was moving into a new home with the help of family Monday, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
“Shannon cannot even get into her own home now… even though she is on the deed to her house,” said Erickson, a spokeswoman for Price.
Erickson pointed the finger at Coleman’s ex-manager Dion Mial, who RadarOnline.com first revealed to be executor of Coleman’s estate.
Price, who married Coleman in 2007 then divorced him a year later, is expected to contest the will, written in 1999, that gives the actor’s remaining assets to Mial.
Erickson said Price will “absolutely” fight that will, citing a second will, a hand-written codicil.
“She doesn’t want everything to go to Dion,” Erickson said.
“We have a retained a high-profile attorney. We have enough documentation that shows that everything will go to Shannon.”
On Monday, Erickson accused Mial of effectively double crossing the grieving ex-wife, after giving him money to pay legal fees to battle Coleman’s parents Sue and Willie for custody of his body.
“Shannon gave Dion the money to pay for his attorney,” revealed Erickson.
“It was all the money Shannon had… she wanted to make sure that Gary’s wishes were respected.
“She was hoping Dion would be able to assist in keeping Gary’s body here [in Utah].”
Instead, Erickson claimed Mial has turned against Price.
“Gary made a statement about Dion less then 24 hours before he fell,” she claimed. “He said that he had not been friends with Dion for years.
“When asked why, Gary said: All good things come to an end.’ Gary was stating that he had a falling out with Dion and did not wish to be close friends with him anymore.”
