Comedian and older brother of Eddie Murphy, Charlie, has died at 57 year’s old.
According Reports, Charlie died this morning from complications resulting from leukemia.
Charlie is most known for co-starring on “The Chappelle’s Show,” particularly the episodes where he reenacts his nights of partying with Rick James.
Charlie was also a writer for several of his brother Eddie’s movies, including “Norbit.”
Charlie also lost his wife to cervical cancer in 2009, and said this of her passing:
“I came home and she’s in the kids’ room, crying. That’s when she told me. Cervical cancer. You don’t really grasp it. When the person tells you they’re going to die, you go crazy. You become a different person from the moment you hear those words.”
“A young woman like that — don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t do drugs. I know people that’s ninety who do all of that.”
“She’s a very organized woman. When she died, all the arrangements had been made. She made her own arrangements.”
“I’m not okay; you’re never really okay you just learn to live with it. That’s something monumental, losing somebody that close in your life. It happened to my children, and me you don’t get used to[it] and you don’t get over it,”
Charlie is survived by his three children.
