Gary Coleman’s ex-wife, 24-year-old Shannon Price revealed in video interview posted on TMZ.com that the actor, 42, couldn't be saved after suffering a brain hemorrhage last week and that she pulled the plug on his life support because she didn't want him left in a vegetative state. Price has come under fire in the wake of the actor’s death last week, as it was revealed that the pair quietly and privately divorced in 2008, which lead people to question whether or not she had the authority to remove him from life support and if she had an agenda.
"The doctors told us that even if they had done surgery on him, he would've died," Price revealed. “He would've bled to death during the surgery. Even if they did take a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same. He'd basically be like Muhammad Ali ... I mean, Gary was gone."
Despite all the suspicion surrounding the relationship between Price and Coleman, the hospital did confirm earlier this week that the actor had provided his ex-wife with the authority to make medical decisions on his behalf, via written permission.
Shouldn’t we all let Gary Coleman rest in peace?
