Charlie Murphy, brother of Eddie Murphy but laying ground work for his own ventures, has passed away at the age of 57.
Gone too soon, Murphy’s battle with Leukemia found its end this morning (Apr. 11). His manager said that he passed away in a New York hospital. He’s been going under chemotherapy, but not enough to keep his life going.
Wife of Charlie Murphy, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 from cervical cancer. All together, they leave behind three children.
Murphy is known for his comedic work, but when it came to his work on The Chappelle Show, it’s hard to match that run of episodes and body of work.
RIP Charlie Murphy.
