This sucks, just a few hours ago I read he was on life support, a few hours later he’s dead 🙁
The Diff’rent Strokes star succumbed at 12:05 p.m. (MST) today at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center to a brain hemorrhage suffered at his home Wednesday, a statement from his management firm said. He was 42.
“Conscious and lucid” yesterday morning, per the statement, the former child star was on life support by Thursday afternoon.
“Family members and close friends were at his side when life support was terminated” today, the statement said.
From 1978 to 1986, Coleman cracked wise as perennial kid Arnold Jackson on the sitcom Diff’rent Strokes. His timing, chubby cheeks and catchphrase (“Whatchu talkin’ ’bout?”) helped make Coleman the highest paid child actor of his era.
The guy had to many health issues, so I guess this is for the better =/
RIP “Arnold,” 1968-2010.
