RIP: Charlie Murphy Dead at 57 After Leukemia Battle

Charlie Murphy, Eddie's older brother and a very successful and popular stand-up comedian in his own right, has passed away.

Charlie died from leukemia Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. 

Charlie famously co-starred on "Chappelle's Show" in some of Dave's most memorable skits ... including the night he partied with Prince. 

He also co-wrote some of Eddie Murphy's movies, like "Norbit" and  "Vampire in Brooklyn." He co-starred in "Are We There Yet?," "The  Boondocks" and "Black Jesus."

Charlie's wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 from cervical  cancer. They had 2 children, and he had another from a previous relationship.

Charlie was 57. #RIP
