    Gary Coleman of Diff'rent Strokes has died

    PROVO, Utah – Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, has died after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He was 42.

    Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. MDT.

    Coleman, with his sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing, became a star after "Diff'rent Strokes" debuted in 1978. He played the younger brother in a pair of African-American siblings adopted by a wealthy white man.

    His popularity faded when the show ended after six seasons on NBC and two on ABC.

    He suffered continuing ill health from the kidney disease that stunted his growth and had a host of legal problems in recent years.

    Poor guy, ripped off by his parents, black listed in hollywood, and beat up by his wife. RIP Gary!

    Sad news. When I was a kid I always looked forward to anything with Gary in it, from Diff'rent Strokes, to his cameos on Buck Rogers, I even watched some of his bad movies. RIP, Gary.

    So very sad to see the passing of a true 80s icon, especially one to die so young...
