So often surrounded by Hollywood users and hangers-on during his career, Gary Coleman made it clear he wanted to have nothing to do with them after he died.

His two-page will, filed Tuesday in a Provo, Utah, court, requests that his remains be cremated, then spells out who would be – and not be – welcome at his wake.

The actor wanted only “those who have no financial ties to me and who can look each other in the eyes and say they really cared personally for Gary Coleman,” according to the will.

In addition, “I direct my personal representative to permit no members of the press to be present at my wake or funeral,” the will states.
