The beloved Charlie Murphy, the older brother of Eddie Murphy, has died at the age of 57.
The comedian’s manager confirmed that Charlie passed away on Wednesday morning at an NYC hospital after what appears to be a very private battle with leukemia. According to reports, the family is “shocked” by the sudden passing because they were under the impression their loved one was getting better.
Charlie’s untimely death comes eight years after the passing of his wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy. Tisha, also the mother of Murphy’s two children, died in 2009 from cervical cancer.
The actor, who is most known for his roles on CB4 and Chapelle’s Show, was so dearly loved in Hollywood. As you could imaged, Hollywood reaction was almost immediate following the heartbreaking news.
