No funeral for Gary Coleman? That's what will says



Shannon price Gary Coleman's will specifies there are to be no funeral services for the late '80s child star. Do I really need to spell out the next line?

What chu talkin' bout, Gary?!?

A Utah judge on Monday named Robert Jeffs the special administrator of Coleman's estate after a dispute between the Diff'rent Strokes star's ex-wife Shannon Price (photo right) and an earlier ex-girlfriend, reports the Associated Press.

Jeffs told the AP today that Coleman's 2005 will specifies no funeral. A judge has ordered that his remains can be cremated as early as today. His ashes and property would be stored until all legal issues are resolved, which could take months. 

According to an even earlier will filed in 1999, Coleman said he only wants a wake attended by people who had no financial ties to him and "can look each other in the eyes and say they really cared personally for Gary Coleman." Media are strictly excluded in the will as well.
