UPDATE, 2:40 p.m.: Sad news. According to Radar Online, Gary Coleman, 42, was taken off life support and has died.Earlier:
You need to sit down, because I have some sad news. Gary Coleman, aka Arnold from “Diff’rent Strokes,” is unconscious and on life support in a hospital near his home in Utah. After a nasty fall at home, he was taken to the hospital yesterday. There, he had a brain hemorrhage, the same thing Bret Michaels managed to survive a few weeks ago. Gary isn’t doing so well, though, and is in critical condition.
The past year of Gary’s life has not been a great one.In February, while doing an interview with “The Insider,” he had a seizure. Luckily, Dr. Drew happened to be beside him and was able to give immediate attention. This was after he was arrested following a domestic disturbance at his home. He claimed everything was all good, though. “My wife and I are getting along great,” Coleman said. “When you live with someone and it’s a lifelong kind of thing, you learn what makes that person tick. So I think I’m doing OK for a newly married husband. It’s a work in progress. I’m not someone that gives up.”
Here’s hoping he pulls through. [E! Online]
