LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former child star Gary Coleman, whose adult life was marked by financial and legal woes, has passed away said reports late Friday afternoon. The Huffington Post and TMZ were reporting that Coleman died around noon Friday from an intracranial hemorrhage.

Coleman was on life support early in a Utah hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage, his manager said early Friday.

“We are saddened to announce that since mid afternoon, Mountain Time, on May 27, 2010, Mr. Coleman has been unconscious and on life support,” manager John Alcantar said in the statement released by the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo.

The diminutive Coleman, 42, who suffered from a congenital kidney disease that halted his growth, was hospitalized after suffering an intracranial hemorrhage Wednesday night at his home in Santaquin, Utah.

The following day he was “conscious and lucid” in the morning, but in the afternoon his condition worsened, he slipped into unconsciousness and was placed on life support.

No further details on his condition were immediately available. But he has not undergone any surgery, contrary to some media reports, and his family hope for a full recovery, the statement said.

Coleman gained fame as the sharp-talking, adopted son Arnold Jackson of a wealthy New Yorker in the hit sitcom ”Diff’rent Strokes,” which aired on U.S. television from 1978 to 1986. His famous line, “What you talkin’ ’bout Willis?” when talking to his brother, became a pop culture catchphrase.

“At times, it may not have been apparent, but he always has had fond memories of being an entertainer and appreciates his fans for all their support over the years,” Alcantar said.

Coleman has already been to the hospital twice this year for seizure-related maladies.

I realize there's not much point in posting this, because there's probably about two other people who know who the man was, but still. It's sad. Rest in peace. ):

Well this is sad news. The man did have alot of issues in his adult life which anyone who knows anything about him is more than aware of but he always had a place as a entertainer and with fans of his sadly one real show. I am sure he will be missed.

Yep I loved Different Strokes when I was a kid, as to it being too soon for his catch phrase... I don't know, the man was a comic actor, I don't think he or his family would mind.
