Michael Clarke Duncan has died. The “Green Mile” actor passed away suddenly on Monday morning. Sources say that he never fully recovered after suffering a myocardial infarction a few weeks ago.
According to TMZ, Michael died in a Los Angeles hospital. His girlfriend, Apprentice villain, Omorosa Manigault reportedly saved his life by performing CPR before paramedics arrived. She has been by his side for much of the past few weeks.
TMZ reports that Omorosa actually left the room for an unknown reason this morning and when she was gone, Michael had died. She has been spoken for by a rep for Duncan who explains she is grateful for all the prayers during this difficult time.
Michael Clarke Duncan was only 54 years old. This news is quite shocking, given the fact that he survived a severe heart attack. Since part of the heart muscle was damaged, it is hard to say whether or not he could have made a full recovery. The fact that he was in the hospital for so many weeks seems like a red flag, and it sounds like his death, though sudden, was perhaps expected.
