Wife sells photos of Gary Coleman in hospital taken by production company she hired: report

[this is TERRIBLE.....scandalous even]

It turns out Gary Coleman's ex-wife is the one peddling the photos taken of the child star after he died.

In fact, she's the one who orchestrated them.

Shannon Price hired a production company to take a series of photos of her ex-husband in his hospital bed hooked up to a ventilation machine, TMZ reports.

According to the gossip Web site, the photos have been sold to an unnamed tabloid and could appear next week.

The image showing the "Diff'rent Strokes" star after he was taken off life support was not part of the deal.

The reported asking price for the photos was in the low five-figures, and Price will get a share of the profits.

Coleman was hospitalized on May 26 due to a brain hemorrhage caused by an accident at his Utah home. He died two days later at the age of 42.
