More Gary Coleman wills ... and yes, more fighting

The craziness surrounding the Gary Coleman estate, a mere two weeks after he passed, continues to grow.  We now have not one -- but two -- new wills that recently surfaced.Gary Coleman

As The Probate Lawyer Blog recently discussed, Coleman's ex-wife, Shannon Price, produced a new handwritten codicil (meaning a will amendment) that favors her.  Dated about one week after the couple married in 2007, the document, in Coleman's handwriting, spelled out that everything should pass to Price. 

TMZ has obtained and posted a copy of the handwritten will.  One part of it is very interesting:

First came the question of how Gary Coleman died at the age of 42.  According to the 911 tapes, Shannon Price (who called herself his wife) summoned emergency personnel when he fell and hit his head.  She was frantic over what to do with her "husband".

Sadly, he didn't recover from the accident, despite being "conscious and lucid" the next morning, according to a Provo, Utah hospital spokesman.  He took a turn for the worse and was put on life support until Price decided to pull the plug, only two days after he hit his head.
