On Sunday night, La Toya Jackson was fired from Celebrity Apprentice.

But it’s what the sister of Michael said after Donald Trump let her go that may get her in serious legal trouble.

Referring to Omarosa Manigault, Jackson went off, actually calling out the contestant for the death of her late fiance, Michael Clarke Duncan.

“She’s a conniving, scheming, cut-throat, probably pulled the cord on Michael Clarke Duncan,” LaToya said. “And I thought Mr. Trump was falling for that fake cry. Such a lie.”

Whoa there, LJ!


In response to that statement, Omarosa has hired an attorney and is threatening to sue La Toya for “false, vicious and defamatory” comments.

“Rev. Manigault has been heralded as a life saver for her actions on the evening that her fiancé suffered a life-ending heart attack,” Omarosa’s lawyer says, referring to his client administering CPR on the actor.

The attorney continued via a statement to Radar Online:

“It is because of her bravery that Mr. Duncan – the love of Rev. Manigault’s life – was able to live for months beyond that tragic night…

“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.”

Concludes the counsel:

“We have been directed to pursue these defamatory statements to the fullest extent of the law with La Toya Jackson and any other participating publications or media outlets who repeat or repost these statements.”
