What will you talkin’ ’bout, Willis?
A week after Gary Coleman’s untimely death at age 42, his former “Diff’rent Strokes” co-star is speaking out about what he claims is the late actor’s secret will.
Todd Bridges, 45, who played older brother Willis to Coleman’s Arnold on the hit series, told “Entertainment Tonight” that he is in possession of a document containing his old friend’s final wishes.
“[A friend of mine and I] have paperwork, and we’ll bring it out soon, that will show what his wishes were and what he wanted,” Bridges said. “There’s a big fight going on with his parents and some other people involved, and after we bring this paperwork out, everybody’s going to shut up.”
Sue and Willie Coleman are seeking custody of their son’s body. Coleman had a tumultuous relationship with his parents, successfully suing them and a former business manager in 1989 for misappropriating the money he earned as a child star.
