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.

Hiding their engagement? Omarosa is all about fame at any price. So how true is this. She was an evil person on the reality show.

I have no love for her but its disgusting to me that you shove a camera in her face when she is that visibly upset.

They say "opposites attract" and this is obviously true in this case. There goes her big payday.

Do we have any proof that they were in fact engaged? Seems like a good argument for Omarosa if she goes after his money.

It really pisses me off to see the camera flashing non-stop.

There needs to be laws against the Papz.

Hollywood has lost a gifted actor and who seemed to be a nice person. To die so young with so much more to give to his family, friends, and fans is a real tragedy.

Mr. G    

Why was Omerosa traveling when her man was in intensive care with life threatening issues? I don't care what your schedule is. Life of a loved one is more important than any self promoting schedule. Says a lot about this woman! As if we didn't already know that!
