Michael Clarke Duncan

Planned To Wed

Omarosa in January

9/4/2012 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Maybe Omarosa did have an ounce of love for another person in there somewhere after all.

He was engaged to the meanest viper on reality TV. Now, I really think he was a gentle giant.. but to have her as a spouse makes him seem like he wanted to hide the wedding on purpose. Sorry Omarosa, you did make great efforts to save his life. R.I.P MKD

So in other words, there will be a fight over his estate, because this entire post is written as if someone is laying out the groundwork for a claim on the estate. Sickening. You kept the engagement from the media but don't mind blabbing everything personal now? Keep it to yourself Omarosa, RIP Mr. Duncan. Hope you left everything to your cat.

For real? The engagement was a secret? TMZ has been referring to them as each other's fiance for months, even in the death announcement. And now you want to pass off their engagement as some secret and that's a news story. Come one TMZ. There's more "news" in the spam in your comments section. Who wrote this breaking news?
