Michael Clarke Duncan`s fiancee is "devastated" by his death
The `Green Mile` actor passed away suddenly in a Los Angeles hospital at the age of 54 on Monday (03.09.12), less than two months after former `Apprentice` star Omarosa Manigault saved his life when he
suffered a heart attack, and she revealed she is struggling to cope with his loss.
She told RadarOnline: "I am devastated. He was the love of my life." Omarosa - who has been dating the actor since 2010 - is said to have performed CPR and resuscitated Michael in July after finding him in a
state of cardiac arrest in the early hours.
She was also with him at the hospital - where he was receiving ongoing treatment following his heart attack - when he died and publicist Joy Fehily released a statement from her confirming the sad news.
It said: "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."
Michael`s appearance in `The Green Mile` saw him nominated for a host of accolades including an Academy Award and a Golden Globe, both for Best Supporting Actor, as well as Screen Actors Guild Award nomination
for Outstanding Performance By a Male Actor in a Supporting Role.
Since `The Green Mile`, Michael went on to star in numerous motion pictures including `The Whole Nine Yards`, `Planet of the Apes`, `The Scorpion King` and `Kung Fu Panda`.
