Heart broken fiancé Omarosa Manigault was seen in public on Tuesday for the first time since the passing of "The Green Mile" star Michael Clark Duncan. While heading through Los Angeles airport, the mourning girlfriend was witnessed breaking down in tears.
The 54-year-old actor died in a Los Angeles hospital on Sept. 3rd following complications from a heart attack he had suffered on July 13th.
According to TMZ, Duncan had been left on the latter date without oxygen for over five minutes before Manigault had brought him back to life with CPR. It is strongly believed that the excessive amount of time had damaged his vital organs so severally that it was nearly impossible for him to recover.
The former "Apprentice" standout had allegedly been reassured that Duncan was improving. However, his decline was said to be "slow but steady," as his kidney, pancreas and a high blood pressure ultimately caused his body to "shut down," according to the site.
A statement had been released through Omarosa's publicist on Sept. 3rd.
"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."
Fellow "Green Mile" actor Tom Hanks had also put out a warm message while referring to Duncan as "Big Mike."
"I am terribly saddened at the loss of Big Mike. He was the treasure we all discovered on The Green Mile. He was magic. He was a big love of man and his passing leaves us stunned."
Highly-acclaimed film director Frank Darabont, who worked with Duncan on the infamous movie, was also equally "devastated."
"[He was] one of the finest people I've ever had the privilege to work with or know. Michael was the gentlest of souls - an exemplar of decency, integrity and kindness. The sadness I feel is inexpressible."
The actor had also made appearances in over a dozen other films, which included blockbuster hits such as "Armageddon," "Planet Of The Apes," and "Kung Fu Panda."
Manigault and the late Duncan were first reported together on Aug. 13, 2010, when they met in the produce department of a Whole Foods grocery store.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the star's friends and family.
