In a statement released to "Extra," Coleman's former agent, Victor Perillo, says he is "appalled" to hear about the purchasing of these photos.

"I am personally appalled to hear the news that individuals are selling photos of Gary in the hospital," he said. "This is unconscionable and despicable. I would like to praise all the reputable news organizations that declined the offers. I hope others will do the same out of respect and human decency."

Perillo adds that the Coleman family "continues to privately grieve the passing of their son. They would like to thank all of his fans for their generous support. This kind gentle soul left the world with many beautiful memories to cherish."

The photos of Gary Coleman may hit newsstands next week.
