A Utah judge says it’s not enough that Gary Coleman and his ex-wife shared a roof after their divorce to award Shannon Price custody of the actor’s estate.
The judge says evidence does not prove Price’s claims that her relationship with Coleman met the state’s standards of common-law marriage.
Price is in a legal battle with Coleman’s longtime friend and business associate Anna Gray over the rights to his estate.
The dispute stems from several wills the former “Diff’rent Strokes” star drafted before his death in 2010.
A 2005 will names Gray as Coleman’s executor and heir.
But Price claims Coleman named her as his sole heir in a handwritten amendment he made to the will in 2007.Â Gray says Price’s claim to Coleman’s estate was voided by their divorce. She believes the judge’s ruling will clear the way for her to formally assume the role of executor of the estate.

Gary Coleman’s ex-wife Shannon Price has been cashing in on his death by granting interviews for a pretty penny! She’s been trying to get up to $50K for an interview â€” even offering a tour of their home where Gary fell!

“I mean, I donâ€™t know how Iâ€™m going to survive. Itâ€™s been a rough while because Gary hasnâ€™t had much work because of his healthâ€¦now I basically have nothingâ€¦ Iâ€™m just wishing and hoping that people will pour out to us and really show their compassion like they have been sending the letters and emails.â€
