A photo of Gary Coleman on his death bed was published this morning by The Globe tabloid magazine.
The picture shows Coleman in a hospital bed with a bandaged head and tubes attached to his body while his ex-wife Shannon Price poses next to him.
Price is being accused of selling the pictures to the tabloid for $10,000 and is facing allegations of foul play in his death.
She was divorced from the 42-year-old actor but the two shared a home together in Utah when he suffered a fall on May 26 that caused a brain hemorrhage.
Price was heard on a 911 call telling dispatchers,
“He just got home, I heard this big bang, I went downstairs…Blood everywhere…I don’t know if he’s okay. I’m not down there right now because I have a fever, if I get stressed out I’m going to faint…”
The release of his dying photos is the latest in the bizarre incidents surrounding his death including an interview where his estranged wife told Entertainment Tonight her plans to,
“Spread some of [his ashes] around some train tracks because trains were his hobby and he loved that very much. And I think that he would really appreciate that I did that for him.”
Several higher end magazines allegedly refused to buy the tasteless photos that appear on the cover and inside Globe, which explains how the magazine bought them at such a low price.
