"I am concerned that irreplaceable memorabilia, irreplaceable model trains, irreplaceable items of personal property will be stolen, damaged or destroyed," Coleman said in the papers filed in February in a Utah court. "[Price] has shown a tendency to damage, destroy and steal my property and I believe she will continue to do so in my absence and while she is trespassing in my home."

Coleman, who died May 28 at 42 after suffering a brain hemorrhage, also said "there have been incidences of domestic violence" before and after their marriage.
A former agent of the Diff'rent Strokes actor has said Coleman had planned to remarry Price.
Both Price, named in a handwritten note from 2007, and Coleman's ex-girlfriend Anna Gray, named in the 2005 will, have filed claims fighting for control of his estate. Coleman was cremated last week.
