Gary C's Ex: 'He Would've Been Like Muhammad Ali'

6/3/2010 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Coleman's ex-wife Shannon Price is defending her decision to pull the plug on life support because she says she didn't want Gary to be like Muhammad Ali or Terri Schiavo.  The comment is so offensive and wrong, it raises questions ... whether her decision to terminate Gary's life was appropriate.

TMZ obtained an interview with Price ... shot the day after Gary died.  Among other things, Price blurted out that she's heard speculation that she pushed Gary and that caused him to fall and ultimately hemorrhage.  Price insists she didn't push Gary -- a weird statement, since no one had publicly accused her of that.

Gary fell in his Utah home May 26, hit his head on the floor and suffered an intracranial hemorrhage.  Shannon, who was divorced from Gary, apparently still had authority to terminate life support at the hospital, which she did on May 28 -- he died a short time later.

Police have said there was "nothing suspicious" involving Gary's fall.

Price fondly mentions that Gary did a lot for her -- like buy her a car.

Isn't this woman supposed to be Gary's EX-wife? And they got divorced a few YEARS ago? If so, then WHY was she at the home with Gary to begin with? Am I missing something here?

well, its hard to comment on this one...cuz we don't know him or her...but God let his Soul RIP!!! He was a funny guy and i liked his'
character...people always think the worst...they probably were friends and she tried to make the right decision...mainly by what the Dr's were saying...the Dr's won't allow someone to pull the plug w/o proper legimate reasoning...i am sure that this was all do***ented by the nurse's, staff, etc...

I think his ex-wife did the right thing..i am sure they were still friends and she probably didn't want Gary to suffer...and i am sure that the Doctors told her that there wasn't any hope for his recovery...life support would of kept him alive, but would he want to live like that...a vegetable just lieing there...I am sure that he would of made the same decision because in reality he was gone until the next life...

If I was in Gary's condition, I would want my wife to tell the doctors to pull the plug.

Something is wrong with the law in an EX has any rights over you. What the hell does EX mean? It's over but I can still pull the plug on you!

For all of you out there who think that it is better to die than to stay on life support, let's see when the time comes, if you will consent to pull the plug on your children? And I bet that not one of your children will have the talent that Gary Coleman had or be fit to lick his boots. Hopefully, you will all have the opportunity in the future to speak from experience on such a subject matter.

Granted this bimbo has the intellect of a pile of crap.BUT she was smart enough to pull the plug so the man could not tell what she may have really done!
People may or may not have like Gary Coleman,but this MAN has been used and stolen from by everyone around him,shamfully by his own parents..and God knows what this bimbo has stolen from him,possibly his life...

Well lets put it this way, doctors know after a bad head injury the likely hood of him leading a normal life. No, was probably the answer if he survived. So let him rest in peace. As far as someone stating or heard it through media or internet from idiots who post comments, the police will do their jobs and find out. She is a no brainer as one can see, but what the hell, she had the authority to do so , chose to and now will collect on his insurance policy and his assests if he had any. Well it is a terrible thing that happened to gary, but if he had such a severe head injury which would cause him to be a vegetable, she did what was best for him.Think about it people, what life is like when you do not know what is even going on around you. What kind of life is it. So i am sure the doctors spoke with her privately and told her the outcome. Rest in peace Gary.

SHE IS A TRUE BIMBETTE. SHE WANTED WHATEVER NOTARIETY SHE COULD GET OUT OF BEING MARRIED TO GARY COLEMAN. WHEN SHE DIDN'T BECOME AN INSTANT CELEB IT WAS OFF TO DIVORCE COURT. THIS WOMAN CLEARLY HAS THE INTELLIGENCE OF A 6TH GRADER.

This "ex-wife" is a twit and an air head. Probably has an IQ of minus 3. So, what do you expect from her?

It should have been absolutely illegal for this girl to pull the plug, she is a damn child for one and as an EX clearly something happened for them to part ways which means you don't go leaving such decisions up to that person. It's absolutely ridiculous and her comments alone should earn her a random solid SMACK in the face by anyone who sees her in the street.
