Michael Clarke Duncan Family Fight Over Unmarked Tomb
Michael Clarke Duncan’s body lies in an unmarked cemetery tomb — more than a year after his death — because of a ridiculous squabble between his family and former fiancee, Omarosa Manigault, TMZ has learned.
We’re told the fight is over a bronze plaque for Duncan’s vault at Forest Lawn Cemetery in L.A.
As of now there’s no plaque at all — it hasn’t even been ordered — even though it’s already been paid for (it was included in MCD’s funeral bill).
Sources close to Omarosa tell TMZ … she had planned to order a plaque inscribed with MCD’s name and the date of his birth and death … but was blocked by his family because they wanted to handle it.
But friends of Duncan’s family tell us the opposite is true … Omarosa is the problem. They claim she identified herself as MCD’s “wife” on the cemetery paperwork and promised to order the inscription … but never did.
And neither side wants to talk to the other to work it out.
One family friend tells us the whole thing is outrageous and shameful … especially since Michael’s mother is 95 years old and in poor health … and would like her son to finally rest in peace.
