Marquea (Marqay) Ambrose, a 32-year-old woman from Chicago, claimed to be Duncan’s daughter despite the fact that she hasn’t spoken to him in over ten years.
If Ambrose is Duncan’s daughter, she seems to be the only member of his family that isn’t in mourning and seems relatively unaffected by the passing of the man she claims is her father.
One source told RadarOnline.com, “It was the day he died that she started calling his mother saying ‘I want what’s mine’ and trying to get money from her.”
Sources also confirmed that although Duncan did date Ambrose’s mother, he “believed he was not her father.”
“The only thing that really bothers me about him passing is that we didn’t fix,” Ambrose told Chicago’s WFLD-TV.
Duncan’s family, on the other hand, is convinced that if there really was a relationship to be mended between Ambrose and the “The Green Mile” actor, she would have at least tried to contact the family during the 53 days he was in the hospital.
“She seems very opportunistic to be making the calls now, especially to his 93-year-old mother on the day her son died,” the source added. “It all seems like she just wants money and didn’t ever care about having a relationship with him.”
According to E! News a public memorial service is scheduled to be held for the Academy Award nominated actor on September 9th at the Hall of Liberty in Forest Lawn Memorial Parks and Mortuaries starting at 9 a.m.
