Well, here’s a reason to end your holiday weekend by hugging another bottle of whiskey. As you can tell from the sound of Mr. Jingles weeping, Michael Clarke Duncan passed away this morning at a hospital in Los Angeles. He was only 54 years old.
Back in July, Michael had a heart attack and didn’t ever fully recover. Michael was recently hospitalized and his fiancee Omarosa (yes, that Omarosa) was with him this morning. TMZ says that Omarosa lef fort only a second and when she came back to his bed, he had already floated off to heaven.
Michael grew up in Chicago and before he became an actor and was nominated for an Oscar for The Green Mile, he worked for the gas company and later as a bodyguard. He was also in Armageddon, The Whole Nine Yards, Sin City and D.E.B.S. Yes, I just brought up D.E.B.S.
Omarosa released this statement about his passing:
“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.”
Rest in peace, MCD.
