The dynamics of Gary Coleman's relationship with live-in ex-wife Shannon Price "were very unhealthy," said the late star's former agent, Robert Malcolm Tuesday, following the revelation that Coleman had taken out a restraining order against Price.

In an unsealed court document filed as "John Doe vs. Jane Doe" on Feb. 19, a hospitalized Coleman said he was "concerned that irreplaceable memorabilia, irreplaceable model trains, irreplaceable items of personal property will be stolen, damaged or destroyed" because 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."

He noted Price, 24, "was convicted of criminal mischief for damaging and destroying my property." posted the restraining order Tuesday.

"This time he knew he needed to break away, so he made sure she was not allowed in his home," Malcolm told Radar, "but then he had feelings for her even though she was abusive and so he allowed her back into his home."

The restraining order was never served.
