Michael Clarke Duncan Dead At 54
While everyone was enjoying their cook-outs yesterday, some horribly sad news leaked out. Michael Clarke Duncan died at the young age of 54; six weeks after he suffered cardiac arrest. You may remember hearing about that story six weeks ago, when his fiancée (Omarosa) had to revive him and rush him to the hospital.
It’s being reported that Omarosa’s mother was by his side when he died, but sadly Omarosa had stepped out of the room for just a little bit and came back to the horrible news. He was in the hospital when he passed away, but sources say that the death was completely unexpected and very quick. The actor’s rep says that Duncan just never fully recovered from his cardiac arrest,
“(Omarosa) Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.” the rep said in a statement released yesterday.
And to add to the heartbreak, it’s now being reported that Michael and Omarosa were planning on getting married in January. TMZ claims that they were secretly engaged and started to plan their wedding right before he went into cardiac arrest back in July.
Such sad news. Michael Clarke Duncan is probably best remembered for his amazing work in The Green Mile. He will be missed…
