Coleman's former agent to tweet the 'truth'

Two weeks after his May 28 death from a brain hemorrhage, Gary Coleman is still making headlines, and it doesn't look like that's about to stop any time soon.

Following the recent TV appearance of Coleman's grieving parents and the battle over his estate, Coleman's former agent Victor Perillo has established a Twitter account, GColemanTruth, to address negative stories about the late star and his family.

"I am furious that there are people out there profiting from Gary's death by getting paid for spreading vicious lies about the Colemans and tarnishing our wonderful memories of Gary," Perillo, a Coleman family confidant, said in a statement. "We want to be viewed as the voice of reason by always telling the truth and the source for factual information about Gary, his parents, and this tragedy."

    I say his wife is trash! Saw he and her on devorice court tv last year. He himself was not much to talk about. Punched a lady at the mall when he was a security officer because she wanted his autograph. He once had a job working as an actor, so big deal! These people are just people and I get sick of people acting like these people are more special than everyone else.

    I think the Utha police is wrong and is breaking the law by not doing an honest investigation into Coleman's death. Why are they trying to protect a criminal I don't know, is it because she is a challenged white person? You know the police have never respected the life of black people anytime they can do them wrong and get away with it they will. We all know that that woman did something to cause Gary to die beside pull the plug. She pulled the pluge to make sure he die. The only reason why she had blood on her is because it splashed on her not because she tried to help him.

    And? What, he didn't go on to actually, you know, say anything? So far this is an article about nothing. Let us know when something worthwhile is said.

    I think we can all survive without ever knowing the "truth".

    I think the fact that this creep is Gary's FORMER agent and a buddy of his parasitic parents says all we need to know about how much "truth" he's going to produce.

    The difference is mejazzbo is that his ex-agent is not going on TV and making money off of his name now.

      I am not sure if his Ex-wife deliberatly killed him, but she sure as h*ll did not even attempt to save him...which may be constrewd as manslaughter more then murder... either way.. she is more then likely the reason he is dead now... and not just for removing him from life support

    So what makes his x-agent the word of real truth. He made money off Gary in the past and is probably just another leach now. In this cast of characters, no one is worth believing, Still no account from the police investigation if there ever was one. All the attention w#0res are active except the police. What are they hiding.

      I don't think the police are hiding anything, however, they have to tred carefully if they are to gather any evidence.. if the wicked Ex wife hasn't already destroyed every bit of evidence against her... I am sure that 911 call she made has got them checking out if she was really upstairs or standing over his body watching him bleed to death and counting the dollars...

    I kind of feel sorry for both Gary Coleman and his family. He, because he never seemed to realize that "cute" doesn't last forever and is nothing to build a career on. His family for taking advantage of him, both when he was alive and now that he isn't.
