Gary Coleman’s Former Agent: “I am Appalled”
The existence of photos of deceased Gary Coleman have cleary upset his former agent – but apparently not his ex-wife.
After hearing that there are gruesome photos being shopped around of Gary Coleman in the moments leading up to and following his death, Victor Perillo, Coleman’s former agent, has released the following statement:
“While Gary Coleman’s family continues to privately grieve the passing of their son, they would like to thank all of his fans for their generous support. This kind gentle soul left the world with many beautiful memories to cherish. That is why I am personally appalled to hear the news that individuals are selling photos of Gary in the hospital. 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.”
Victor Perillo has a heart and understands the difference between right and utterly, totally wrong. It seems Gary Coleman’s wife, Shannon Price, on the other hand, does not.
TMZ has confirmed that Price is behind the selling of the disturbing photos, and that she actually had the balls to have a production company come in to the hospital to take the shots of her ex-husband literally dying. She is even featured in one of the photos, and will reportedly get a cut of the profits if the photos sell. Which, we hope, they won’t.
Where do people like this come from? What goes on in their head to think to do something so horrific and de-humanizing to someone they are supposed to care about?
Tell us: Do you think Shannon Price was behind the photos?
