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."

MOONBEAM! she has lots of "high end junk" she bought in Vegas and can sell that - plus all the expensive things she bought - plus a car she legally can't drive - she is milking this as far as it will go and doesn't need a dime for anyone.

Not uncommon for photos to be taken of the deceased. Historically, many took photos of their loved ones to record their passage at a wake, etc... But not the most pleasant thing for most of us to see or do.

For the POS Omus and his hateful postings.



You're a sick individual. Check in at the closest psychiatric clinic before you completely rot with all your poisonous ravings.
Are you related to Gary's ex-wife perhaps?

This is no woman. This is a childish piece of **** who probably begged and nagged just to stay living with him. Its obvious he tried to rid himself of her before and just couldnt shake her off. He may be alive today had she not have been in the house. She has no epilepsy so why does she have these so-called siezures. These are known to curse drug addicts. And yea if she had a car why say she couldnt drive? She didnt want to drive thats why. He must have cut her off financially (poor man really had nothin left anyway) So she saw a way to make $ off him another way other than pestering him for it. The hospitl should be ashamed!!! They knew they were in there tking pics and they allowed it. If he had any family they would have one hell of a law suit. But didnt the hospital think this was unethical? Obviously not. They are just as discusting as her. And ne media outlet should give this non-human anymore airtime.

Why does everyone feel for Gary? He married her, didn't do what was required to divorce her, and THEN still lived with her for two years? Obviously he loved the drama to the bitter end.

You may be right; I didn't know about the "high end junk." She said she was broke and considering asking the public to help with his funeral. Just giving her the benefit of the doubt (although I don't know why). Anyway, whatever photos she took would probably sell for much more than a funeral would cost. We'll see if she releases the photos, or maybe she'll back down if there is a public backlash against her. Or maybe she won't care and will just take the money anyway.



I would have encouraged the doctors to go ahead with the surgery, whether he was expected to survive it or not. When the chances are slim or none, I would have chosen slim. And since she was no longer legally married to him, it's not like she would have had any legal obligation or been personally liable for any rehabilitation or private nursing and other medical expenses he would have required. Maybe she would either have been forced to take care of him in a vegetative state or to move out of his house right away if she refused to take care of him, and perhaps she didn't want to have to do either of those things. It will be interesting to see if she had any life insurance on him that was left over from their marriage that was never cancelled, just like she still had the health care power of attorney.

I hope the police are looking into this conduct. I'd also be curious if there's some life insurance policy that she'll be looking to collect. That hasn't been mentioned yet, but it could have been done quietly.

Poor Gary, used and misused all his life (and after!) by people who were supposed to love him. May he now rest in peace forever, finally free and happy.

AH    

Omus,
If it was so 'catastrophic' for her, I sure didn't hear it in her voice.

I hate it so much that this rotten snatch has paid Gary attention solely for the money and attention, but she has proved it beyond doubt and I would be willing to bet that she killed him. She keeps referring to her HUSBAND, whom she divorced 2 years ago. What a loser - karma will show her soon enough.

If indeed it is true, I am literally speechless.
