According to the LA Times, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth — better known in reality TV simply as Omarosa — has issued a statement on the shooting death of her brother, Jack Manigault.
Jack Manigault, 40, was caught up in a lovers’ quarrel, Ohio police said, and was killed when his girlfriend’s ex shot him Sunday in the bedroom where Manigault and the woman were sleeping.
“Manigault was home with his 34-year-old girlfriend when the woman’s former boyfriend, 22-year-old Marco Cardenas, forced his way into the house past two juveniles and entered a bedroom where Manigault and the woman were sleeping,” the Youngstown Vindicator said, citing police reports. “Several shots were fired, and Manigault ran from the room and collapsed with a gunshot wound to the head.”
In a statement on Monday Omarosa says,
“We thank everyone for their amazing outpouring of support surrounding the tragic death of my brother Jack. Right now it is an extremely difficult time and we ask that you allow family privacy to grieve and make all necessary arrangements.”
Although Manigault had problems with the law in the past, Omarosa went on to say,
“My brother was so special to us! We loved him unconditionally. And we were so proud of him when he turned his life around and gave his life to God two years ago.”
