Actor Michael Clarke Duncan has died

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'.
