New information has come out regarding the death of Michael Clarke Duncan.

Sources tell TMZ the 54-year old actor never fully recovered from the heart attack he suffered on July 13, as his brain went without oxygen for five full minutes during that episode, prior to fiancee Omarosa Manigault restarting his heart via CPR.

From there, Duncan faced a number of health problems, ranging from issues with his kidneys... to his pancreas… to high blood pressure. Each time one area was fixed, the insider says, another difficulty would arise.

A devastated Omarosa, who had planned to marry the actor in January, is making funeral arrangements as we type. Our thoughts go out to her and Duncan's loved ones.
