Omarosa Manigault recently appeared on The Wendy Show where she discussed her lawsuit against her Celebrity Apprentice co-star La Toya Jackson, following Jackson’s insensitive claim that she probably killed her late fiancé, deceased actor Michael Clarke Duncan. During the interview, Wendy also distastefully asked whether or not The Green Mile actor left anything to her in his will. Omarosa responded:
“Let me just tell you that Michael was just the most incredible, generous soul and probably the most shocking aspect of this is that he did want to make sure that I was cared for, very, very well.”
Michael’s sister Judy, however, is implying that Omarosa wasn’t as shocked as she may like the public to believe and that she actually had a lot to do with how much was left to her in the late actor’s will. Judy Duncan revealed to TMZ that she has hired a lawyer to investigate the drastic change in her brother’s will, which occurred in April of 2012, only months prior to his death. While it’s not exactly rare for a person suffering from health troubles to want to make sure that their affairs are in order, Judy dropped the bomb, informing the public that the alterations made to the will named Omarosa as the main beneficiary. Judy went on to say that she believes her brother was “not of sound mind” when he made this decision, as he hadn’t been himself, had slurred speech and had been stumbling around as early as December 2011.
Judy also says that while Michael was on life support, Omarosa was obsessing over his money. Following her brother’s death, Judy revealed that the Celebrity Apprentice star really pushed the family over the edge when she sold some of his personal items like his watches, cars, awards and his The Green Mile director’s chair without even informing them.
Omarosa insists that Judy is just money hungry and looking to see what she can squeeze out of her.
“I don’t control the estate or the finances and Judy knows it. If you saw all of her emails and texts to me you would see that she is just trying to get money from me, and threatened going to press if I did not give it to her and that is a crime!” she told TMZ.
And in case you were wondering, Michael left Judy $100,000.
