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
