    July 6, 2005: Actor Gary Coleman arrives at Video Games Live at the Hollywood Bowl.

    The independent attorney appointed to oversee actor Gary Coleman's estate says there will be no funeral services for the former child TV star.

    A Utah judge this week named Robert Jeffs the special administrator of Coleman's estate after a dispute between the "Diff'rent Strokes" star's ex-wife and ex-girlfriend.

    Jeffs told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Coleman's 2005 will says there should be no funeral services. Jeffs said it was unlikely Coleman would be cremated on Wednesday.

    The actor died May 28 after suffering a brain hemorrhage at his home south of Salt Lake City.

    Coleman's ex-wife, Shannon Price, and ex-girlfriend, Anna Gray, both contend they are the lawful administrators of Coleman's estate. Gray is named in the 2005 will and Price is named in a 2007 handwritten note by Coleman that names her his sole heir.
