Hospital Knew Gary Coleman's Ex Took Pics

6/7/2010 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Officials at the hospital where Gary Coleman died tell TMZ they were "aware" that Shannon Price and her family were "inside taking pictures" around the time Coleman passed away.

A rep from Utah Valley Regional Medical Center tells us, "We were aware that Shannon and her family were inside taking pictures ... we made notes that the family was taking pictures."

Shannon's rep -- who had previously doubted the existence of the photos --  now tells us, "Shannon and her family did take pictures but they were never meant to get out."

As we first reported, Shannon is set to get a cut of the action -- but her rep is still adamant that Shannon "is in no way getting compensated for these pictures."

She's totally set herself for this one. This morning she said that Gary always said it would be totally unfair to her if he were to die suddently. And I thought WTF??



Now it makes sense. She's going to claim he would have wanted her to be taken care of.



What the hell do you have to do in Utah to be investigated?

Idiot!    

BULLSH*T! First off, why does this horsefaced bitch have a "rep" if she's a private person? Only celebu-whores and actual performers have "reps" Second, it's already been proven that she's getting a split of the profits from the sale of her ex-husband's deathbed photos. Lastly, what kind of sick f*ck sells pics of their ex-spouse on his/her deathbed?



I SO want to pummel this horsefaced bitch with a 2x4; she's the lowest piece of sh*t on planet Earth. Only slightly better is her "rep", who's lying to everyone & anyone who will listen. Both of these pieces of sh*t need to be beaten within an inch of their lives & dumped in a gutter...

How can we live in a world where someone can strip the last bit of dignity from a person, dead or alive? Gary you are most certainly in a much better place!

From day one the story sounded fishy. I believed she pushed him down, the interviews showed no sadness that she had just lost her husband. And now she is selling pictures of his dead body, or at least right before he died. Come on Shannon, something is seriously wrong with this girl.

This toothy broad believes that the rest of us are as obtuse, as was Coleman! I am with the blogger, who asked what kind of hospital allows cameras, on the premises...in the first place? This whole event...from the curious "fall"...to the aversion to blood, and failure to render aid, to Coleman...to the police and hospital claiming that there was "nothing suspicious", about this whole thing...raise more questions, than answers. I uderstand that this woman arrived at Good Morning, America...in a WHEELCHAIR...for her interview, this morning! Making the rounds of the talk-show circuit...honing her lies...and, making as many quick bucks, as she can...before this story loses its legs! Even in America...where "bad taste" is apparently something to be proud of...this whole story strikes a new "low"! Next, she'll appear with that mummy, Larry King, with his scripted questions...and, his usual failure to elicit ANYTHING worth listening to. It reminds me of the 19th century, when the corpses of famous people were featured in sideshows, and personal appearances...so that people could buy popcorn...and GAWK!! Poor Gary will be reduced to something like a teacup's worth of residue, and will probably exhibited on the Black Entertainment Network...Poor darling!

Uh    

I cant believe you morons. TMZ has recanted the original story (like always), and you're up in arms over their recent "revaluation" (actually imagination). The story, once again is based on unidentified sources (could be Harvey's grandmother for all you know). None of you know Gary or his ex-wife, and you get all worked up reading a "story" written by high school dropouts. And it happens over and over. What's happening with the crisis in Israel? What's the latest on the BR oil pollution dilemma? I bet you do know how many pimples are on every actor's butt. Unbelievable!
