Michael Clarke Duncan, the star of The Green Mile and The Whole Nine Yards, passed away today at the age of 54.
According to TMZ, his passing came suddenly. His fianee, Omarosa Manigault, was with him in his Los Angeles hospital room and left for a short period of time. He died before she returned, but her mother was with him at his time of death.
Duncan’s rep says that the actor never fully recovered from suffering a myocardial infarction on July 13. Manigault had found him in cardiac arrest and was able to resucitate him using CPR before calling 911.
His rep has said “Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebration of his life, bothe private and public, will be announced at a later date.”
Rest In Peace, Michael.
