Michael Clarke Duncan

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.

Last month I think I read that he was going to help to do a fund raiser to help save American children. He was going have people, across our country, donate ten bucks to Focus Adolescent Services, Focusas.com They say he was a really good person with a good heart and tons of compassion for others.

So sad! I think a Im sorry for your loss is ok but following her with the camera after is a bit much, you know she isnt going to be able to speak, he just died! and filming her sobbing :( so sad. I feel so bad for her, I cant even imagine how it feels to lose the man you planned to live your life with.
And if she was a bitch or not, that doesnt matter, she still has a heart and maybe she treated him right because he treated her right. Let her mourn.

I understand that the paparazzi invade stars privacy... but come one... that's pretty low to do that to Omerosa. She just lost the person she was in love with, give her a break for gods sake.
As mean as she may be on tv , it is probably all acting.

I'd like to feel sorry for her at this time, but it's difficult when you've seen what a reprehensible and insufferably wretched self promoting racist b*tch she's been on television and the way she treats other people.

Heart is breaking for you- a beautiful couple with so much future. I hope that your heart will heal and you find a way to move on after the shock and grief subside.

Bullsh*t. No one would marry Omarosa. She's just a gold digging b*tch. That's why her fingernails are so dirty. She's been digging for gold for years. Funny how nothing was said about marriage before he died.
Omarosa has no heart and those are crocodile tears.
Don't believe O ever loved anyone but herself.

How could anyone love Omarosa? She's just after his money. How convienient that their marriage wasn't announced. There probably was no marriage in his plans.

Just awful. I always thought he was one of those rare, genuinely nice, Hollywood types. He will be missed by my entire family.

So sorry to hear of Michael's passing. He was a good actor and will be missed. He really dodged a bullet where Omerosa was concerned, however. What a diva itchbay!!!
