Coleman’s ex-wife says he’d have been like Ali(STORY)(Gary Coleman 911 Call )

Gary Coleman's ex-wife, Shannon Price, has come under fire for deciding to discontinue the actor's life support. But Price said that she made the decision because if she didn’t, Coleman would be “like Muhammad Ali.”
“The doctors told us that even if they had done surgery on him, he would’ve died,” Price said in a videotaped statement to TMZ. “He would've bled to death during the surgery. Even if they did take a chunk out of his brain, he would not be the same. He’d basically be like Muhammad Ali ... I mean, Gary was gone.” (Ali suffers from Parkinson's disease, which causes tremors and slurred speech.)
“I don't want people to be so hard on me thinking I had to pull the plug too early,” Price said. “He wouldn't have made it anyway. His heart would've just given out. I don't want people to sit there and think I'm a bitch, and that I didn't care about him.”
Price has been under additional scrutiny for her behavior during the 911 call she made upon finding Coleman after the accident that caused his brain hemorrhage.
In the call, she said, “There’s blood all over. And I can’t do anything.” Price also said she was hesitant to help Coleman because she “couldn’t be near blood.” 

Some have even speculated that she might have had something to do with Coleman’s initial accident. Her response to TMZ: “A lot of people sit there and say, yeah, she pushed him. People are so cruel, they don't even know. I was upstairs, he was downstairs. How am I going to push him? Why would I want to hurt my husband, are you kidding?”
