Planned To Wed

EXCLUSIVE

0903_MICHAEL-CLARKE-DUNCAN_omorosa_tmz_gettyMichael Clarke Duncan and Omarosa Manigault were secretly engaged and the wedding was set for this January, TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us, Michael and Omarosa kept the engagement a secret from the media ... only telling very close friends and family about the pending nuptials.

We're told the couple had just started planning for the wedding when Michael went into full cardiac arrest​ July 13 and was hospitalized until his death.

We're told Omarosa is just destroyed after waging a valiant fight to save Michael.  She had doctors flown in from all over the world but constantly worried if she was doing enough.

Michael died while still in the hospital Monday morning. He was 54.

Omarosa, who had just left town for an engagement before Michael's death, returned to L.A. last night ... and was sobbing uncontrollably at LAX.

My heart goes out to Omorosa...she tried so hard to save her love's life. Michael Clark Duncan was an amazing actor who touched so many hearts. He will be missed. (Yes, now I can confess...I am no Omarose Ma****ult, but he was decidedly my "celebrity crush".) Rest in peace, Michael. I am so sorry that you left this Earth so young.

Wow so classy as usual, she hasn't even gotten back to him to grieve at his bedside and during one of the hardest things we deal with in our lives your sure to shove cameras in her face to get a money shot of her bawling.. Just because they are celebrities it doesn't mean the basic laws of decency shouldn't apply. Special place in hell for people in the paparazzi that stoop so low.
