Gary Coleman wanted to remarry ex-wife

London: Gary Coleman, who died last month, was planning to remarry his ex-wife Shannon Price after recovering from heart surgery.

Confirming the news, their agent Sheila Erickson said: "They were recently talking about getting remarried. They were waiting for Gary’s health to get better. In fact, Gary wanted to (wed) two weeks ago."

Erickson reveals Coleman always referred to Price as his wife, reports "Even though they were divorced, it wasn`t something that stopped them from being together. It (divorce papers) was just a piece of paper to Gary and Shannon."

The agent reveals Coleman and Price decided to split after realising that they had "jumped into something too soon".

The couple filed for divorce just days before their first wedding anniversary in 2008, but they lived together.
