“Over the last six to eight months of Gary’s life had often expressed to me that he was concerned Shannon was taking things that didn’t belong to her,” Kester told

“Shannon was destroying things in the home.

“He was concerned that things were pirated off by Shannon and given to her family, they even had a sports car and a big truck.”

As first reported, Coleman filed a restraining order on February 19, 2010.

But he never served it on Price.

The document said Price had, “shown a tendency to damage, destroy and steal my property and I believe she will continue to do so in my absence and while she is trespassing in my home."

Kester said the Diff’rent Strokes star was in hospice care when he was pushed over the edge by Price and filed the restraining order.

Kester said, “He (Gary) called me constantly and complained about her (Shannon) contact with him and she was making him worse and he couldn’t get well because she was constantly badgering him and texting him -- dozens and dozens and dozens of texts and phone calls to the point where the hospice care workers were calling me saying can you please do something about this. And Gary would call and at that point we got this restraining order.”

Price was able to avoid being served the restraining order after many attempts by the attorneys.
