Gary Coleman's Funeral Canceled Due to Family Feud

Gary Coleman will not be buried this weekend as originally planned, as his ex-wife Shannon Price is fighting with his estranged parents about the location of his burial, TMZ reports. Coleman died Friday at age 42 in a Utah hospital following a fall that resulted in a brain hemorrhage, and the TV star's parents are seeking custody of his body and want it returned to the star's boyhood home in Illinois, his former manager, Victor Perillo, told the Associate Press on Thursday.

Perillo said Coleman's parents, Sue and Willie Coleman, are the legal custodians of his body because Coleman and Price divorced in 2008. But a rep for Gary's ex-wife claims Price is the executor of the actor's will and has the power to make all decisions regarding the funeral and his estate.
