Gary Coleman

Dies

5/28/2010 6:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Coleman has died as the result of injuries he suffered earlier this week, the hospital tells TMZ.

We've learned Gary's wife, Shannon, made the decision to pull life support early this AM.

We're told Coleman died at 12:05 PM MST.  He died of a intracranial hemorrhage.

Family members and close friends were at Coleman's side when life support was pulled.

He was 42.

As TMZ first reported, Coleman was rushed to a hospital in Utah after he fell and hurt his head. He was on life support since Thursday.

There will be a press conference at the hospital at 3:00 PM PT.

A rep for Coleman released this statement: "Thanks to everyone for their well wishing and support during this tragic time. Now that Gary has passed, we know he will be missed because of all the love and support shown in the past couple of days. Gary is now at peace and his memory will be kept in the hearts of those who were entertained by him throughout the years."

What a sad ending to such a sad life - what a pity that his life turned so desperate since his role in Different Strokes - downhill ever since. May he RIP now.

I hope Lisa Bloom feels bad for giving him so much **** on t.v., but she is Allred's daughter and they have no conscience...esp. Allred, I forgot how his parents stole from him, his health was bad for so long, he really suffered in this life. I hope he rests in peace and enjoys "the life after this life"...God knows it cannot be worse!!
