Gary Coleman Divorced from Shannon Price

6/2/2010 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Gary Coleman divorced Shannon Price nearly two years ago ... raising issues about her authority to make final medical decisions on Gary's behalf.

Gary's divorce lawyer, Randy Kester, tells TMZ the couple divorced on August 12, 2008, and as far as he knows they never remarried.

Kester does not know if Price had a power of attorney to make medical decisions.

A hospital official tells TMZ they have "become aware he may not have been married to her."  But the official said she was portraying herself as Gary's wife and they didn't require further proof. 

The official did not say if Shannon had a power of attorney.

WOW! after listening to the 911 call and now they were probably not married. Looks suspicious to me.

I read that on Wikipedia before he died that they were in the middle of a divorce so when I read that she made the final decision to pull the plug here on TMZ, I said, wait...that's not right at all...I'm surprised you guys weren't on top of that a few days ago!

It had to be a medical decision not hers to even decide that he was in futile cir***stances. Also, if she is NOT married to him she wouldn't get anything whereas if she is married to him she is entitled to his property unless stated otherwise in a legal do***ent such as a will! Why do people try to make something out of nothing?
