Gary Coleman's Final Will and Testament Anything but Clear

The squabbling over Gary Coleman's will, his remains and his legacy has already begun in earnest. Before the famous actor could even be buried, allegations started to fly that ex-wife Shannon Price had pulled life support too soon. Then Coleman's adopted parents battled over the right to bury him. His parents eventually withdrew their demands and Coleman was cremated.

Even this was not the end of things, as Price and longtime friend Anna Gray continue to fight over who will keep Coleman's remains.

Now, it is on to Coleman's estate plan. An original will, drafted in 2005, left all of the actor's assets to Anna Gray, whom the actor lived with for a number of years. She moved out when Coleman begin seeing Price. 

The two were married for a brief time, but she and Coleman had been divorced for two years when he suffered his fatal accident. An amendment to his 2005 will, brought to light after his death and supposedly dating back to 2007, gives Price control over his estate.

According to PopEater, Gary Coleman's lawyer has his doubts as to the documents validity. In the article, he describes the "handwritten, amended will" as obviously dictated and uses "legal jargon" Coleman most likely would not have known.

In a show of reserve, Coleman's parents have not enter entered the ring to dispute his will.

An extreme example of the troubles involved when estate plans are not clearly stated, the continued drama around Coleman's wishes show the absolute necessity of having a comprehensive and clearly-stated estate plan.
