According to reports by TMZ, comedian Charlie Murphy has reached the end of a fight with leukemia. The elder brother of Eddie Murphy died Wednesday morning in a New York City hospital. Charlie had been undergoing chemotherapy to fight his illness. He passed away at the age of 57. He leaves behind three children and two brothers.
Charlie was known for his hilarious skits alongside Dave Chappelle on Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show. One legendary skit had the actor recalling a night partying with Prince. Charlie also penned some of Eddie Murphy’s movies and co-starred in productions such as Are We There Yet? The Boondocks, and Black Jesus. Charlie Murphy also performed alongside Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, George Lopez and D.L. Hughley for a recent tour. Sadly, in 2009, Charlie’s wife, Tisha Taylor, passed away due to cervical cancer.
Our condolences to his family and friends.
