It was back in July that the gentle giant, star of “The Green Mile,” was hospitalized after going into cardiac arrest. Stallworth discovered her fiancé at 2 a.m. and managed to perform CPR to resuscitate him until paramedics arrived. Duncan had been hospitalized since July 13 and a sudden turn for the worse means that Stallworth’s plans for a wedding will be pushed aside to make plans for a funeral instead.
“I am devastated,” Stallworth toldRadarOnline on Monday. “He was the love of my life.”
The Hollywood couple’s relationship was never brought into the spotlight until late January when Michael appeared on the “The Talk” and shared some intimate details about his love life with the former Apprentice star.
Although Duncan was never shy about sharing the details of their relationship, the couple did agree to keep their wedding plans out of the media’s eye. After Duncan’s death, however, TMZ has revealed that the two had been secretly engaged and planned to be married in January.
A rep for Manigault-Stallworth revealed that the couple’s romance sparked when they first met in a Whole Foods grocery store, and the two seemed to be madly in love ever since.
