Coleman's Parents: We Want to Bring Gary Home

6/3/2010 8:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Coleman's parents, Sue and Willie, have officially lawyered up -- with the intention of bringing their son "home."


TMZ obtained a statement released by attorney Frederick Jackman, which says, "The Coleman's don't want to fight anyone ... They're hoping that by applying for Formal Probate, they can get through this process the right way."

The lawyer also stated, "I don't understand why so many people who knew Gary are being so secretive. The status of the divorce, whether or not anyone has a will, these are all issues that should be brought to the family's attention immediately."

The statement doesn't specify where they intend to bury their son.

I'd like to see his body cryonically frozen like Ted Williams' head so that maybe, thousands of years from now, they can thaw him out and heal his injuries and he can tell them who bashed him upside the head.

They adopted Gary and forced him to work when he was sick. They squandered his money and now they want him.

Take him home, at least they aren't begging for money to bury him. Parents and kids sometimes have problems, the End is what counts. Bury him in peace.

Now that the parents found out Gary was divorced, do they think they are in line to receive any monies or property Gary might have had at death? If they find out he didn't have anything to be probated, will they pay for his burial? Then I would believe their sincerity!

Gary and his parents lived modestly during his childhood. They were somewhat ignorant to how Hollywood works and were not capable of handling all the money that Gary was making. So between the lawyers, accountants, managers, and whoever...the money was wasted, stolen, mooched off of and whatever. That was the cause of the bad blood between him and his parents. Left Gary a broke and bitter man.

Maybe they want to have Gary dissected.....make DAMN sure they find any missing funds.......they dissected his emotions long ago.

Let his parents bury him; Shannon has no money, she's begging for fans to send money. Also, since they were divorced she is no longer his next of kin, his parents are.
