The photos show Coleman in the hospital shortly before he died, including one picture of Price leaning in to put her head next to Gary’s as tubes come out of his mouth. There were four photographs taken in total, and Shannon claims she sold only the pictures of Gary while he was still alive and kept the one photo of him when he had passed away. But as has reported exclusively, Shannon has been on a spree of profiting from her ex-husband’s death. She sold an interview she filmed within 24 hours of Gary’s death. She then sold other interviews, asking for as much as $50,000 through representatives.

Gary Coleman's Parents & Ex-Wife Battle Over His Body, Funeral exclusively reported that Shannon is furious that a friend of Gary Coleman, Dion Mial appears to have control of the estate. The 1999 will leaves her nothing. Although, as we reported earlier Wednesday, a new will is about to surface that could change everything.

Price claims she is now locked out of the home she shared with Gary and blames Mial. Her actions has come under scrutiny, including the way she reacted when Gary hit his head and Price called 911. She left the room as Gary was bleeding and told the emergency operator that she couldn’t handle the blood.

Gary’s ex costar Todd Bridges reacted angrily to that in an exclusive video with and asked why Shannon didn’t do more to help.
