Gary Coleman’s Wife May Not Have Had Authority To “Pull Plug”

It’s being reported this afternoon that there may be a bit of controversy surrounding the death of Gary Coleman. Entertainment Tonight has paperwork proving that Gary and his wife, Shannon Price, divorced back in 2008. It might not seem like a big deal, but Shannon was the one who gave the okay to take Gary off of life support last Friday. If she wasn’t legally his wife, she didn’t have the authority to make that call.

Gary’s attorney confirmed the divorce:

I can confirm they’ve been divorced since August 12, 2008. At the time of Gary’s death, they were not married. I have no knowledge if they were ever remarried.” His lawyer went on to say, “Gary wanted me to keep their divorce private but now that it’s been made public, I’m compelled to say it’s all true.”

It’s hard to say what will come of this revelation. Gary was reportedly estranged from his family and it seems like he and Shannon were all each other had. So, I’m sure she just acted out of the “norm” for them, maybe she wasn’t thinking about the “legality” of it? And Gary’s family might have done the same thing with stopping life support, but I’m sure the hospital will be doing some investigating now. This might get messy!

Lawyers Say Charlie Sheen Has “Definitely” Reached Plea Deal

Yesterday INO reported that Charlie Sheen opted to serve jail time. Today lawyers have confirmed that the actor has “definitely” reached a plea agreement. Brooke Mueller’s lawyer Yale Galanter says it hasn’t been approved by a judge yet.

“There has definitely been a deal reached. Brooke is totally satisfied with the deal but if she had her druthers, the case would have been dismissed.

“But a deal is not a deal until the judge approves it”.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin also confirmed an agreement has been made, but refused to discuss any details.

It is expected he could start a 30-day jail term after a court hearing on June 7, but he could be out after 15 days with good behavior. Or if he runs on celeb time… 87 minutes.

Heidi Montag Says She Needs Time Alone

Heidi Montag shared some insight with People regarding her recent split with husband Spencer Pratt. Heidi says that she needs some breathing room to figure things out:

“I needed some alone time,” Montag, 23, tells PEOPLE exclusively, “There are so many lies out there about me and I just needed space – even away from my husband.”

“I had to get away from the lies my family and supposed friends are saying about me,” says Montag. “It’s time to concentrate on myself.”

Don’t start throwing any parties just yet, Heidi says they are working on things:

“I’ve always loved Spencer,” says Montag, “but right now we’re working on things.”

I wonder if they will “work things out” during the taping of the new reality show?

Khloe Kardashian Two Months Pregnant?

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are reportedly expecting their first child together, according to Radar Online.

“Khloe was inspired by Kourtney having a baby,” a source close to the family tells “Lamar is happy and ecstatic” about having a baby with Khloe.

According to the source, Khloe is two months along and is already having cravings:

“Khloe is having cravings of fruit and ice cream,” the source told “They’re really happy, but Lamar is a little weary of exposing his baby on TV. He already doesn’t like his life being played out for everyone to see eight months of the year.”

Do you think Khloe will keep the pregnancy off the show? I highly doubt it.

If it’s true, this will be the first child for Khloe and the third for Lamar.

Congrats to the happy couple! :)

Charlie Sheen Ready To Serve Jail Time

Last week I told you Charlie Sheen’s attorneys and the Colorado prosecutor had reached a deal with four options for the actor: plead guilty and serve some jail time, plead guilty and take two years’ probation, accept a deferred prosecution, or got to trial.

Now, someone is telling People magazine that Charlie has selected the first option.

“Charlie intends to go to court on June 7 [to] plead to a misdemeanor and immediately begin serving his 30 days in jail,” says the source. “With good behavior, he could end up doing 15 or so days.”

It sounds like the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star has decided to just put this whole ugly incident behind him. Maybe this (or the time in jail) will be the wake-up call Charlie needs to straighten himself out.

Report: Brody Jenner Saved Avril Lavigne From Drowning

Brody Jenner helped save Avril Lavigne’s life… or so says today’s gossip reports. This whole story could be heavily exaggerated – keep that in mind while reading it.

Rumor has it Avril was knocked off her surfboard during a lesson in Malibu. She swallowed so much water that she was unable to swim back. Brody swam to his girlfriend and dragged her back to shore. A source told America’s Star magazine:

“A big wave flipped her into the water upside down. Brody swam over and dragged Avril to shore, but she’d had the wind knocked out of her – she’d swallowed a bunch of water and was coughing.

“When Avril realized what happened, she was so thankful Brody was there to save her.”

If it’s true, then thank goodness for Brody!

Heidi Montag Moving In With A Friend For New Reality TV Show

I told you yesterday about Heidi Montag’s rep’s announcement that she had split from husband Spencer Pratt.

Is it real? Is it a PR move? I still don’t know, but Heidi reportedly has moved in with a friend named Jennifer Bunney (who appeared on ‘The Hills’). And Jennifer told Radar Online that the two are filming a reality TV show this summer about them living together. ‘The Hills’ 2.0?

“Heidi and I are moving into a Malibu beach house this summer,” Bunney told “We’re really excited to do girly things and show people who we really are and that we’re really fun, sweet and loyal girls.”

Jennifer also supposedly admitted that Heidi and Spencer are not legally separated.

“But, she is moving in with me. It’s just her being able to have some freedom from marriage and for us to work on our friendship and focus on things we want to focus on.”

Hmmm… meanwhile, TMZ reports that Heidi is saying Spencer “held me hostage,” isolating her from all her friends and family.

What do you think: PR stunt or true? Or maybe… sadly… both?
