Omarosa Sues La Toya Jackson Over Michael Clarke Duncan Death CommentsPublished by on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:36 am.
The wacky but always lovable La Toya Jackson is now officially duking it out with reality show villain public enemy number one: Omarosa Manigault. But Michael Jackson’s older sister may have brought the wrath on herself.
Omarosa is planning to bring a lawsuit against Jackson for the “false, vicious and defamatory” comments that La Toya made about Manigault having a hand the death of her fiancé, Michael Clarke Duncan.
The war of words all went down on Sunday night’s episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. La Toya Jackson got fired by Donald Trump and had this to say about Omarosa and Duncan after she was given her reality show walking papers for the second time. “She’s a conniving, scheming, cut-throat, probably pulled the cord on Michael Duncan Clarke … and I thought Mr. Trump was falling for that fake cry. Such a lie!”
Omarosa has since been silent on the matter but sent in her lawyers to respond and officially comment on the hurtful dig.
“La Toya Jackson’s statement on the March 17, 2013 episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, that the Reverend Omarosa Manigault caused her fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan to die, is false, vicious and defamatory,” Omarosa’s attorney told RadarOnline.com.
“… It is because of [Omarosa’s] bravery that Mr. Duncan — the love of Rev. Manigault’s life — was able to live for months beyond that tragic night. Mr. Duncan passed away from natural causes,” the attorney continued.
“… It is repulsive and of the lowest level of class for Ms. Jackson, who showed herself to be a ’sore loser’ in making these disgusting statements in the wake of Rev. Manigault’s tragic loss,” said Omarosa’s attorney. Her counsel also added that they are currently pursuing legal action against Jackson.
“As [Omarosa’s] counsel, we have been directed to pursue these defamatory statements to the fullest extent of the law with La Toya Jackson….”
Yikes! Sounds like La Toya better lawyer up too.
