Former "Different Strokes" star Gary Coleman filed legal documents in 2006 that specifically stated that he did not want anyone to pull the plug on him.
In the documents obtained by TMZ, Coleman checked a box titled "Choice to Prolong Life," which says, "I want my life to be prolonged as long as possible within the limits of generally accepted health care standards."
Shannon Price, Gary Coleman's ex-wife, has reportedly sold three photos of Coleman during his final hours to a tabloid magazine.
In a statement released to "Extra," Coleman's former agent, Victor Perillo, says he is "appalled" to hear about the purchasing of these photos.
"I am personally appalled to hear the news that individuals are selling photos of Gary in the hospital," he said. "This is unconscionable and despicable. I would like to praise all the reputable news organizations that declined the offers. I hope others will do the same out of respect and human decency."
Former "Different Strokes" star Gary Coleman was set to be buried this weekend, but funeral plans have been put on hold while his ex-wife and estranged parents battle over his remains.
Gary's parents, Sue and Willie Coleman, plan to file legal action to gain control over their son's deceased body. The couple wants to have Gary's remains buried in his birthplace, Zion, Ill., where they currently live.
Although the marital status between the late Gary Coleman and his wife, Shannon Price, is in question, Price's agent believes they were married.
Shielia Erickson, who represented Price in Utah, told "Extra," "Shannon and Gary really loved each other. I thought they were always married. I was always close to them, and that's how they acted -- married."
