In that will filed by Mial, Coleman ordered that only people who "really cared personally for Gary Coleman" be allowed at his services. The two-page typewritten will instructs that he be cremated, then requires that people allowed to attend the wake must be "those who have had no financial ties to me and who can look each other in the eyes and say they really cared personally for Gary Coleman." The will also says, "I direct my personal representative to permit no members of the press to be present at my wake or funeral." The will names Mial as executor of his estate, giving him broad powers to arrange the funeral and pay out estate assets to ""my entire estate to the Trustee of the Millennium Edge Trust." The details of the trust were not revealed. Coleman's main asset was his $315,000 Utah home. In court documents accompanying the will, Mial complained that Coleman's ex-wife Shannon Price, 24, "has been removing personal property from [Coleman's] home which has not been inventoried or accounted for." Price's spokeswoman, Shielia Erickson, said Price has a 2007 will in which Coleman leaves her everything, and will use that to contest the 1999 will.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Price said she plans to spread some of Coleman's ashes "around some train tracks, because trains were his hobby and he loved that very much. And I think that he would really appreciate that I did that for him." About his estate, Price says Coleman "wanted me to have everything," although he didn't have much money. "His financial problems have always been bad with people stealing from him," she said. "Gary hasn't been able to take care of finances very well because no one taught him. [But] we survived through everything. I had some family help us. My family's been very supportive."
A judge briefly issued a bench warrant for Lindsay Lohan's arrest after her alcohol-sensing bracelet reported that she had consumed alcohol, thereby violating her probation. Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, told TMZ that the bracelet "indicated the presence of a small amount of alcohol on Sunday night," after Lohan attended the MTV Movie Awards. Holley said, "Having just received the report, I am not in a position to speak to its accuracy or validity, however, Ms. Lohan maintains that she has been in complete compliance with all of the terms of her probation and her bail." Judge Marsha Revel ordered Lohan's current bail forfeited and set new bail at $200,000, which was immediately posted by the same bondsman who posted bail last month when Lohan failed to attend a required court hearing. The bench warrant was recalled and Lohan is due in court July 6 to explain herself. On her Twitter page Lohan wrote, "My scram wasn't set off-Its physically impossible considering I've nothing for it to go off-All of these false reports are absolutely wrong."
Meanwhile, Lohan's father Michael Lohan is a partner in a nightclub named "Controversy" that will open in a restaurant in the Hamptons. Michael, who has been charged with DUI, tells TMZ that the club will offer a driving service for patrons who have had "a little too much too drink," and he claims the club will "screen for drugs."
There was speculation that it was just another Speidi publicity stunt, but if so, it's legal too. Heidi Montag filed papers for a legal separation from Spencer Pratt on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences. In the document, which Montag wrote herself, she lists the date of separation as Tuesday, so any of her earnings on or after that date become her separate property. The papers say the pair married April 25, 2009.
Hustler says it will release a sex tape featuring "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub and a mystery man. The tape, which was reportedly shot last September, features Staub, who has proclaimed on the show that she's reformed after her checkered past, "She knows it's being released," Julie Messing, Hustler's director of public relations, said the tape was not offered to Hustler by Staub or by the man in it. "It was shopped to Hustler by a production company that purchased the rights to the video. They purchased the tape legally from an undisclosed party, maybe a rep or an agent. They wanted us to be the distributor," Messing said. The 75-minute sex tape will be released Monday.
Larry King’s wife Shawn Southwick overdosed on pills back on May 28, according to a 911 call obtained by RadarOnline. "I can’t wake her up," Shawn’s father Karl Engemann told a 911 operator after finding his daughter unresponsive at her home in Provo, Utah. "She may have overmedicated," Engemann tells the 911 operator. “I don’t think she did it on purpose. Last night she seemed confused about what she had taken, the last time she had taken it." Engemann denied that his daughter would have tried to kill herself. "No, no. No, it wouldn’t be suicidal," he says. Larry King and Shawn both filed for divorce on April 14 this year, but later reconciled. The pair have two sons.
