X17 XCLUSIVE - Janet Jackson Saddened Over Diff'rent Strokes Co-Star Gary Coleman's Death

Posted on Fri May 28, 2010 02:28 PM PDT

garyjanetlogo.jpgJanet Jackson is sending her condolences to the family of Gary Coleman, who starred alongside her in the 80's sitcom Diff'rent Strokes.

X17online has obtained the following statement from Janet:

    I'm at a loss for words upon learning of Gary Coleman's passing. I want to remember him as the fun, playful, adorable and affectionate man he was. He has left a lasting legacy. I know he is finally at peace.

On the sitcom from 1981 - 1982, Jackson played Charlene DuPrey ... the girlfriend of Todd Bridge's character, Willis.

Coleman, 42, died today after being hospitalized at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, Utah. John Alcantar, Coleman's manager, says the star had suffered a brain hemorrhage after a fall at his Santaquin home, 55 miles south of Salt Lake City. After days on life support, Coleman passed away.

Our thoughts go out to Gary Coleman's family.
