Did Gary Coleman Leave Everything to a Mystery Woman?

A new will surfaces in which the former child actor, who died last month, left his estate to female friend

Gary Coleman's death continues to stir up controversy, as news broke this past weekend that another will has surfaced -- and a mystery woman stands to inherit all of the actor's cash.

A new document, executed on February 3, 2005, and filed Friday afternoon in Utah, claims that Coleman, who died from a brain hemorrhage last month at age 42, left everything to a woman named Anna Gray.

"Everyone's fighting over what might happen in the future," Coleman's lawyer told ET.com. "You're really fighting over millions."

Coleman's agent, Robert Malcolm, says that Gray and Coleman were close friends since meeting in 1997, and even lived together platonically in Coleman's Los Angeles home at one point. Coleman reportedly asked her to help him with his corporation and he made her CEO. She later moved with him to Utah in 2005 after he met his future wife, Shannon Price.

"When Shannon moved in, the relationship got difficult because Shannon didn't like the fact that there was somebody else in his life," Malcolm said. "And, of course, he sided with [Shannon], and Anna was asked to leave."

Coleman's ex-wife is not named in the newly discovered will -- since it was written before he married her -- and neither are his estranged parents, Sue and Willie Coleman. Price, meanwhile, has filed a handwritten addendum in court in an effort to get her share of Coleman's estate. Dated September 4, 2007, the addendum was written when the two were still married and states that Shannon is the sole heir.

Coleman wrote, "I made this change of free will and was not coerced in any way. This I have done because of my personal selfishness and weakness and I love her with all my heart."
