Gary Coleman at home with his parents Sue and W.G. Coleman in 1979.
Gary Coleman had been estranged from his parents since 1989, when Sue Coleman filed a court request to gain control of her son’s estimated $6 million fortune, insisting Gary was not able to handle his finances. Gary countersued and won a $1.3 million settlement, though he eventually declared bankruptcy in 1999. Gary rarely spoke to his parents after that and he left them nothing in his will when he died in 2010.
