Gary Coleman's Parents: Honest or Not?
at 1:00 PM
Are the Coleman's being honest about not taking money from their son?
Read moreThis is an interesting interview to watch because there is a clear history between Gary Coleman and his parents that was fought out in a court case. In 1989, Gary Coleman sued his parents and former business manager for stealing his trust fund. At the time of the lawsuit, Gary's parents fought back with a counter suit for defamation and for breach of contract. They never gave up that lawsuit, they fought it to the end, and Gary won.
It's fascinating to sit here and watch them play all innocent. They should stand up and say that they believed they were owed that money, if that is what they felt, but they aren't. Why? Instead they play ignorant as to why they are estranged. They obviously had a serious disagreement about much money they were due, if not other disputes. I'm not buying they believe they are estranged because Gary got outside influence. He got a "different" input and maybe that woke him up!
I suspect these two have convinced themselves that they didn't "steal" anything from their son. People who do things that are questionable often have selective memories or go into denial, because, after all, who wants to remember "their ugly"?
I believe Gary had valid reasons for cutting off his parents for 20 years. He felt so strongly he left them out of his will entirely and specifically. That's a very strong statement that I think Gary felt he had to make, out of fear they might have contested his last wishes.
