The star's manager told E! News, "We're just getting bits and pieces right now, so there's really nothing to report." Speaking to TMZ, Coleman's brother said he had sustained a head injury after a fall.

As a result of the kidney disease he suffered as a child, Coleman has been plagued with health problems in his adulthood. The AP reports that he has had at least two kidney transplants and has ongoing dialysis; this February, he had a seizure on the set of The Insider. He had heart surgery -- followed by a bout of pneumonia -- last autumn.
