Charlie Murphy Loses Battle to Leukemia, Dead at 57






Comedian and legendary storyteller Charlie Murphy has reportedly passed away at age 57 following a battle with leukemia.

According to TMZ, Murphy's manager has confirmed he passed away in a New York City hospital due to complications from the deadly cancer. He had previously been undergoing chemo treatment to fight the illness.

Murphy appeared in minor acting roles in films throughout the 1980s and 90s, but his star rose the highest after breakout performances as a storyteller on Chappelle's Show. The elder Murphy brother garnered widespread acclaim for his retelling of stories involving music stars Rick James and Prince, and his graphic, no-holds barred approach to sharing these stories introduced him a new generation of fans.
