Awwww, man. This is a tough.
In very sad news, it is being reported that Charlie Murphy, the older brother of Eddie Murphy, has passed away at the age of 57.
The famed comedian died from leukemia Wednesday morning in an NYC hospital, TMZ reports from Murphy’s manager.
TMZ also says he’d been going undergoing chemotherapy, and family members were absolutely shocked because they thought he was getting better. The family would call him frequently, and he’d even joke they were calling too much.
Cancer played a major part in Charlie’s life as his wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 from cervical cancer. They had 2 children, and he had another from a previous relationship.
RIP, and our condolences go out to the Murphy family.
