On Sunday night, Jackson was fired from Donald Trump's reality show, and during her exit interview she slammed Omarosa by saying: "She's a conniving, scheming, cut-throat (who) probably pulled the cord on Michael Clarke Duncan."
Duncan died of a heart attack in 2012, and after the episode aired on Sunday Manigault filed a defamation lawsuit against Jackson, calling her comments "false" and "vicious."
Jackson clarified her remarks during an appearance on "Today" on Tuesday morning. She explained: "I haven't received anything from that so I have no clue (what is going on legally)... (But) I didn't mean it that way, at all, not at all... I think Michael, I think he's a wonderful person, he was like a gentle giant, he was a lovely person, a very sweet person, and I just wish that he was still here with us."
