We are saddened to hear and report that Comedian Charlie Murphy has passed away this morning in a NYC hospital after complications with Leukemia. 

Charlie Murphy’s manager has reportedly explained that he’d been undergoing chemotherapy for a while in hopes of getting better and beating this disease. His family members and friends were shocked to hear of the news because they had thoughts that he was getting better.

Charlie is famously known for co-starring on The Chappelle Show including huge roles in the skit on the infamous nights he’d party with Rick James and Prince. He is also known for writing in the movie Norbit, starring his brother Eddie Murphy.

We will miss his comedic spark, and witty punch lines for years to come. We are blessed to have been graced by his presence and will cherish him daily.
Rest in peace.
