Latoya Jackson - Latoya Jackson Sued For Death Remarks

Latoya Jackson has been sued by a reality Tv rival over ill-conceived remarks she made during her Celebrity Apprentice exit interview, which aired in America on Sunday night (17Mar13).

Jackson was fired by boardroom boss Donald Trump on the episode of Nbc's business-centred competition programme, but before she left the show, she had some choice words for Omarosa Manigault during her final interview.

Jackson exclaimed, "She's a conniving, scheming, cut-throat," but it was the suggestion that the reality Tv veteran had a hand in her late fiance Michael Clarke Duncan's death last year (Sep12) that really upset Omarosa.

The Green Mile star died in hospital after suffering a heart attack, just months before Manigault joined the competition show, prompting some of her teammates to question her ability to take part. But she insisted she was determined to win.

After Jackson's harsh comments aired, Manigault's attorney released a statement to RadarOnline that read, "La Toya Jackson’s statement on the March 17, 2013 episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, that the Reverend Omarosa Manigault caused her fiance Michael Clarke Duncan to die, is false, vicious and defamatory.

"Rev. Manigault has been heralded as a life saver for her actions on the evening that her fiance suffered a life-ending heart attack. 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. Mr. Duncan passed away from natural causes.

"Ms. Jackson made the statement immediately after having been fired off the show, and blames Rev. Manigault for her loss. 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.

"As her counsel, we have been directed to pursue these defamatory statements to the fullest extent of the law with LaToya Jackson and any other participating publications or media outlets who repeat or repost these statements."
