Entertainment Tonight has exclusively obtained court papers confirming that Gary Coleman was actually divorced at the time of his death.
Gary and Shannon Price were legally divorced on August 12, 2008. Gary filed for divorce from Shannon under sealed divorce documents that referred to the parties as "John Doe" and "Jane Doe." All court fees were paid for by Gary. No alimony was awarded, however, property was awarded to Gary under the decree.
When ET contacted the hospital where Gary passed away, a spokesperson told us, "We had no indication that the information Shannon gave us was false. She portrayed herself as his wife."
