Hollywood actor Charlie Murphy, famous brother of Eddie Murphy, has died this week at the age of 57. The former “Chappelle’s Show” star lost a battle with leukemia.

According to reports, Murphy died Wednesday (April 12) in New York City.

He’d been going undergoing chemotherapy. Family members tell us they’re absolutely shocked because they thought he was getting better. We’re told the family would call him frequently, and he’d even joke they were calling too much. Charlie’s wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 from cervical cancer. They had 2 children, and he had another from a previous relationship. (TMZ)

The shocking death has sparked endless reactions from various hip-hop entertainers.
