Globe bought Gary Coleman photos for $10,000; funeral plans are revealed
We've been wondering where Shannon Price sold her awful photos of Gary Coleman in the hospital and how much she got, so a stroll to the newsstand will tell you it was that rag Globe, and PopEater says she got a mere $10,000. So that's how much a soul costs these days.
"They are going to sell a crazy amount of magazines," a source told PopEater's Rob Shuter. "Yes, it's an ugly decision to run pictures of a man in his hospital bed minutes before he died, but dead celebrities sell." Hey, you're reading this, aren't you?
Meanwhile, details about his final wishes came to light as his two-page will was filed in a Provo, Utah, court. According to People, it said he wanted to be cremated and the only guests to his funeral should be only "those who have no financial ties to me and who can look each other in the eyes and say they really cared personally for Gary Coleman." He also explicitly stated the press should not be allowed anywhere near the proceedings.
His ex-wife is talking to anyone and everyone about what she'll do next, revealing to Entertainment Tonight her plans for his ashes: "To spread some of them around some train tracks because trains were his hobby and he loved that very much," the 24-year-old said. "And I think that he would really appreciate that I did that for him."
He also would have appreciated if you hadn't left him bleeding on the kitchen floor and then profited off his death, we suspect. We may be wrong.
