Comedian Charlie Murphy passed away today after a long battle with leukemia. He was 57.

While Murphy's younger brother, Eddie Murphy, pursued fame and fortune as a standup comedian, Charlie embarked on a crime spree that ended when he was discharged from jail and joined the Navy in 1978.

After serving 6 years in the Navy, Murphy landed minor roles in films and on television throughout the '80s and '90s.

He is best known for his gig on Dave Chappelle's comedy hit Chappelle's Show, where he recounted his experiences with icons Prince and Rick James as part of his brother's entourage in "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories" sketches on the show.

Murphy recalled how Prince made the best pancakes. “They were good, man. They were really good. They were actually perfect. They were as good as he played guitar.”

In response to Prince's untimely death in 2016, Murphy released a statement through his publicist: "I’m blown away. May he rest in peace. Music has lost one of its greatest icons."

By then, Murphy was already in the advanced stages of cancer.

Insensitive bloggers often remarked on his emaciated appearance at standup comedy shows.

Murphy leaves behind 2 children by his wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, who died of cervical cancer in 2009, and his firstborn son by his first wife.

Thanks to loyal readers Javonne, Beestroh, Travis and C Wynn for the tips.

  • Tish

    Yeah they did.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Y'all asked for it. I learned my lesson long ago, about asking her for a write up on a dead person....they rarely (if ever) go well, especially a black person who may have had some controversy in their life.

    Bravo Sandy, you never fail to deliver the expected goods.

  • Tish

    He was married before. I think the first son was born from his first marriage.

    Rip Charlie

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Charlie!! <3 God Bless you! I could totally see charlie eating pancakes with prince! :) Such a great funny man! I am not going to cry again, but it is really hard to get past the initial shock.

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    Chile....you warned them!! Smh

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    ???

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He had an older child from a relationship prior to his marriage, whom Tisha accepted as her own, so they had 3 children total.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She stays the course with shady post on dead people.....why expect anything else?

  • CookieMobster

    This is a shock to me. I didn't even know he was sick. He is so funny to me.

  • Yardgirl

    Awww man so sad right now!! He did not look "right" on the Unsung episode. I read something about him being vegan, however I suspected it was the evil big C. RIP Charlie Murphy, you will be missed!! :-(

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Per DL Hughley- After Every gig Charlie made sure he got home to his children and he died with gigs on the books.
    Even if he did do some knuckle head mess in the past- he turned out to be a good, hardworking man, loving husband and great father.

  • hottlanta

    Sandra throws criminal shade on Charlie in death but didn't give that "I will give you pills for sex," drug dealing Chinese doctor who got dragged off the United Airlines airplane yesterday. People saying what he did in the past wasn't important but Trayvon got vilified and all he was doing was going to the store only to be hunted like a animal by a Barney Fife wanna be playing wild kingdom. Just boggles the mind.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    same thing with Bernie Mack...the actual good comedians never stay around too long

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Yeah, I know....but Imma stay my course (Like she stays hern) and go against her!! LOL

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty
  • hottlanta

    Thanks for putting it like that for me. I wonder why she didn't talk about Dump fake raid on Syria where he called Putin, Assad to say what time he was coming and do a fake air raid and it was operational without 2 hours of the U.S. leaving Syria. Still waiting on the headline about the LEGAL FISA warrant on Carter Page giving documents to the Russians and Dump campaign still claim they don't know who he is but Dump said he was a Foreign Advisor. She is going this as a distraction to not talk about the real issues at hand. Thanks

    And of course it's shown now that Susan Rice was in the right and Devin Nunes was in the wrong over that whole "unmasking" fake-scandal. But dont expect to see much posted on that around here..

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    And
    1. Sean calling the Nazi camps- Holocaust Centers
    2. Saying "Even Hitler didn't use chemicals on innocent people"
    3. Assad was worse cause he bombed his own people
    4. Had to rewrite his apology post 3 times in less than 15 minutes
    5. Bannon is being ostracized and dump saying he barely knew him
    6. They found no evidence that Susan Rice did any wrong doing- per members of BOTH parties

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    BOTH parties agreed that she did nothing wrong, but dump still trying to say she did, because that Syria distraction didn't work.

  • synergism

    That hashtag is a classic

  • Ms.Caramel

    I can't believe with everything going on in politics , Sandra acting like it's not happening. I guess your throat is full from eating crow huh? Whatever the case, I expect more from this blog. Very disappointed...

    She learned the art of distraction from the best of the best- The Repugnant party!!

  • Guess Who

    SMH..so I guess the nazis gassing folks and injecting them with experimental drugs was not considered using chemicals on innocent victims?

    Sean Spicer is the emperor of bloated morons who will soon have a nervous breakdown.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He was always crazy, but the fact that he is breaking a million and one laws and destroying the US...........and has not had to answer for it is just pumping up his ego and feeding his craziness.

  • Guess Who

    Rick: What did the five fingas say to the face?!!
    Charlie: "Wha ?"
    Rick: "SLAP!" Bang! Bang!

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Rest in peace Charlie. I noticed on his Unsung Hollywood that something was amiss and its sad. My heart goes out to the family as he lost his wife to cancer years ago.

  • KarmaBackAround

    When i asked to hear about British politics with allthats going on there she told me this not the bbc YET u post bout trump every other day..

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I just Googled it, lol.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Thats tough..didnt know about his wife

  • SunRiseBlossom

    That was a straight up low blow and disrespect for the deceased and his family. That statement was a symbol of character and very unnecessary! Everyone has a past, so none of that matters... the man clearly found his way and was loved by many!!! I am so disappointed in Sandra for being so negative... Show some RESPECT!!! #smh

  • SunRiseBlossom

    ME EITHER!!!

  • Connie

    That impersonation was spot on! Talented brothers

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lol

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I never thought I would be the one to type these words:
    Why are folks surprised at Sandy shyt? We all knew that when and if she wrote this, it wasn't going to be pretty or respectful.

  • L.Miles

    Jesus lady I pray for you, your spirit is so evil, you spew hate for no reason.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Regretting I checked in on this post. I kind of figured Sandra was going to update her bloggers about the matter, but I was not visiting to entertain this kind of disrespect

  • KarmaBackAround

    I am too..she has really lost me on this blog..this is the first time ive visited in a while..her disrespect is so blatant..the man aint been dead a full day..its a shame how our own kind drags the black man..im disappointed and disgusted as well..

  • GuestSTAR

    RIP Charlie

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    That's how I found out about her on his Unsung Hollywood and saw that he was really thin.

  • hottlanta

    It is laughable when Dump said he felt like those kids in Syria was his grandkids that is why he felt he had to bomb. Why didn't he feel that those 5 young men in Central Park were someone kids/grandkids but he purposely took a 4 full paid ads in the newspapers and went on a speaking tour for them to die. Even when they were found not guilty he says they are guilty. I want someone to follow the money during that time period to see how much money he put in someone's pocket or campaign to make sure those young men get executed.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Right! But one thing about it, God dont like ugly.. Im all for bloggin n trash talkin individuals thats ALIVE.. but my respect runs deep for the dead..his criminal history was unnecessary just to say r.i.p

  • Bam Bam Li

    I was about to comment on the exact same damn thing. There's a limit Sandra, and it really seems like you've sold your soul for hit.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    AllAroundTheWorldSameSong... I hate you (not for real tho) for posting this GIF and making me hold this laugh (because I do not want to laugh)... but I cannot help it!!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    So after his "grandkids" get gassed, he (being the ever loving grandfather) felt shooting missiles over there was a loving thing to do? He is full of shyt and we all know he didn't of the Central Park 5 as anything more than ni@@as.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Truth told..but damn!

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Right they must didn't see obits over the years like Neffie's hair stylist and others. This is her and it ain't changing.

  • Ms.Caramel

    She used to. No telling when we'll see another Trump post. Maybe when he and his party cease acting like fools we'll get one.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    CTHU....that is all of us kicking her in the face for Charlie and the rest of the folks she disrespects.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Girl someone won a Pulitzer prize at the Washington Post this week reporting on his lies. Lol

  • Renee26

    It was a low blow but also a testimony of how he changed his life around at an early age. he went to the Navy at 18 and was straight ever since...there's a reason why juvenile records are sealed

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    So NEVER!! Cause they ain't even past a 90-day probation...on any other job, they would have been gone!

  • hottlanta

    He was lying because during his travel ban fiasco he labeled those babies "terrorists". He didn't say I don't want the adults over here he meant he didn't anyone from Syria over here. Notice how he didn't have a backup plan to bring them over here. How you gonna ranse someone off and put them back on their deplorable condition compassion.

  • Ms.Caramel

    Me too. I'm looking for something else to do or somewhere else to go online. Any suggestions?

  • Renee26

    Because he was a minor....that helfa

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Amen! I totally agree. I was always taught to never speak ill of the dead; show some respect for the person and their grieving family! Your name says it best: Karma(comes)BackAround ... that is why I will not entertain that foolishness!!! I am praying for those babies that lost their beautiful mother in 2009 due to cancer and now they are fatherless because of cancer!!! They will need strength during this time.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    You have messed me up for the day! LMBO...

    He was battling with leukemia

    He also was in the movie "Norbit" as Resputia. He and Eddie took turns as her.

    It got to that point for me too...so when I went on vacation I also took one from the blog. Came back and it's not the same as far as entertainment but it's the same NEGATIVE talk going on

  • Renee26

    I never knew that! That's one of my favs

  • hottlanta

    I knew all along Susan was in the right and they were as well. They were just talking smack about making her testify. They REALLY didn't want to go there because she would have been dropping more bombs than Dump fake raid on Syria. They are mad about the leak but ain't mad about Flynn being a foreign agent taking money on the side, Manafort 15 Russian bank accounts and Jared private meetings with Russia no one knew about.

  • Ms.Caramel

    ?

    Where is the hate?

    They reported that throughout her questioning, she didn't stutter, pause or stray from her original answers. She stood firm in that she did nothing that she was accused of and they had to say okay.

  • K_LE

    Sandra, you should be ashamed of yourself as usual. What does his past have to do with his death? I really think you do this on purpose just to get a rise out of people. It's either that, or you're just rotten to the core. Isn't there some sort of upcoming racial draft we can trade you in?

  • KcoolMuziq

    I worked with Charlie Murphy last year and noticed he didn't seem too well. He seemed in pain. He was such a real dude to me. What U saw is what U got from him. I always admired his honesty even jokingly about my musical idol Prince.

    He just shouted Prince out just a few weeks ago on twitter and Facebook. The anniversary of his transition is coming up 4/21. They both were 57 when passed away. Smh

    R.I.P. Charlie Murphy

    I know Eddie is heartbrokened.

    Aww... That's real thoughtful of you.

  • Luvn_it

    The media needs to have some respect and stop starting out story's referring to him as Eddie Murphy brother. And Sandra I want speak on you b/c its obvious you're nothing but a coon. Out of all the articles I have read only you decided to speak ill of the dead. Eddie wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for his brother( which he's acknowledged himself) since you want to throw his name into this. And this man career expand way before the Chapelle Show do some real research before you decide to write such a post.

    All of these celebrities who partied together in Rick James/Prince circle of friends are dying suddenly...THE TRUTH IS NOT BEING TOLD.

    They all had alot in common,

    Slept around with same people, used the same drugs, used the same drug dealer, hung out in the same old familiar places, and often ended up in the dinghy back warehouse, converted into an underground clinic, treating them over years for the same symptoms.

    You forgot to say they were all WEALTHY they didn't take no stuff from people that deliberately tried to disrespect them and their craft. . Leave out the important stuff.

  • hottlanta

    Sounds like they were mad they wasn't invited to the party. They were having flowing sex, flowing drugs and flowing money while their shyt was raggedy and just dripping.

    Rest n Paradise, Charlie Murphy, you will truly be missed! My condolences to the Murphy family.

  • Cricket404

    RIP Mr, Murphy. I saw him last year and it immediately broke my heart and brought me to tears. I remember going online to find out what was his illness and I couldn't find anything. He was very thin with a large protruding stomach (looked 6 months pregnant), it was obvious he was in his last days. He suffered many years, now he is at peace, sincere condolences to his family.

  • abby500

    Right...

    #RIP Charlie and #RIP to my buddy (and former client) Tish. My heart goes out to their children and family. Wow! *tears*

  • Cici

    So sad. I never cry over celebrities, but my heart breaks today for the Murphy family.

  • Tammie Reed

    I was supposed to do something with him a few months ago on social media but the gig ended abruptly asking me to take down my post, delete tweets etc. The pr agency never told me why, but know I see, so sad! May he RIP.

  • Cici

    ???

  • SummerBaby

    Hey!!!

  • hottlanta

    You expect for us to forget about Dump when he makes comments about a possible nuclear war with North Korea he is trying to start knowing good and well his son's are not going to the front lines to fight. We are not sad we are aware and if we had an adult/liar-in-chief we wouldn't have to keep our eyes/ears on the news 24/7 to see what is going on that will affect out daily lives in a negative way.

  • JJSPLAYHOUSE

    Thank You! They're still HIS children and their father has passed. No remorse or compassion what so ever.

  • Angel Harvey

    What was the point in saying a third child was born out of wedlock...too messy

  • reddfoxxy16

    Catch the ice grill from "Ms.Tigah" in the back honey....LOL...

  • reddfoxxy16

    This was 2 cute, LOL..thanx 4 sharing...

    This is sad news. RIP Mr. Murphy. ?

  • Shanna Brown

    This is unfortunate. RIP...

    BUT Black ladies, please guard yourselves. I can't say it applies to this situation but please read between the lines.

    Black men will have HIV and be taking their meds and NOT tell you out of fear that they are "outed." You MUST get tested regularly, YES, especially if you are married to a Black man.

    Research for yourselves, cervical cancers. And leukemia are cited as HIV related cancers. 1st the wife gone (likely had no idea she may have had it) now him?

    Please get tested regularly for HIV because you never know.Untreated HIV can often cause cancer.

    Again, I am not necessarily saying this is what happened in this situation, but sunn in the buttermilk wun clean.

  • hottlanta

    I just stumped my toe, that is AIDS related. Stop the silliness please.

  • Shanna Brown

    From cancer.org

    Cervical cancer is a cancer of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus (womb). Like Kaposi sarcoma, cervical cancer is strongly linked to infection with a virus. In this case, the virus is the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV can be spread from person to person through skin-to-skin contact, including through sex.

    HIV-infected women are at high risk for getting cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). CIN is the growth of abnormal, pre-cancerous cells in the cervix. Over time, CIN can progress to invasive cervical cancer, in which the cancer cells grow into deeper layers of the cervix

  • Allihave2say

    I grew up a die hard MJ fan; Prince died with me as a die hard fan. I didn't know I missed his voice until now. Thx for sharing.

  • Tea??

    This is a fúcked up write up. RIP Charlie

  • Allihave2say

    So Prince died on 04/21 & Charlie on 04/12? I'm now officially a conspiracy theorist and a numerologist.

  • iyonah

    May he rest, peacefully. Love and light to his family.

  • leapyearpisces

    yep!

  • Alicia.Ashe

  • klwbaby

    What's unfortunate is that their children have lost both of their parents. What's unfortunate is that they now to hear/read people say "hey, I don't want to gossip but yo daddy might have been a DL gay man who because he was in denial, actually had HIV and since HIV exposure have been linked to cervical cancer is the reason yo momma is dead"...

  • Oya Shango

    They also don't state what kind of cancer caused his death. AML?
    . . . The Navy is also dominated by gay men. Always has been. Just like the catholic ministry.

  • friendofblog

    She's so negative and just downright evil. What is the root that causes her to constantly spit hatred? Such bitterness. SMH

  • KcoolMuziq

    OMG!

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lol

  • Mahogany?Bronze

    This was a shocker cause I wasn't even aware the he was ill. I thought he became a vegan/vegetarian...WOW. Well he is with his beloved wife now. My condolences to the Murphy Family. RIP Charlie!

  • Jussjess25

    Aww man this is a sad one! Rip kiddo?

  • Jussjess25

    Your right! ?

  • Jussjess25

    O wow

  • Shanna Brown

    I said nothing about gay anything. HIV can be contracted through drug use,hetro sex, bloof transfusion, etc. Regardless WOMEN should get tested regardless on a regular basis as symptoms can take YEARS to show.

  • Shanna Brown

    Its no secret HPV ( an STD) in many cases leads to cervival cancer. We need awareness...PERIOD.

  • Shanna Brown

    So true

  • Shanna Brown

    What's unfortunate is that Black women are dying at a substantially higher rate than other races of women due to cancers linked to STDs, yet it is being swept under the rug. MARRIED BLACK WOMEN, especially those married to Black men MUST get HIV. and regular cancer screenings regularly to help protect ourselves. sad but true.

  • charallday

    Thats the first thing my hubby

  • Ridingfinest

    It's a damn shame Sandrarose is so disrespectful. No one else reported about his run in with the law but her ass....smfh!

  • sunni_daze

    Wow the man just died and you choose to comment on something that happened 39 yrs ago. I am convinced you are the white media and a stone cold hater of anything black. RIP Charlie Murphy

  • sunni_daze

    I saw him about 2 months ago and was shocked. His suit looked like it belonged on Bruce Bruce and you could see some type of medical bag under it.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    All the reports have listed it as Leukemia

  • Birdman24

    Couldnt have said it better myself

  • Birdman24

    Disgraceful.... Wrong forum for your discussion, this man just died. You dont know him and even to hint at such a thing is malice.

  • Birdman24

    Wrong FORUM.......

  • Kimberly Booth

    Why couldn't you just say RIP. This was not the forum for you to spread your assumption on how and why concerning him or his wife's health issues. Two souls lost their lives leaving behind kids...I understand you want to spread awareness but don't do it under this man's passing away post. I find it very disrespectful and people like myself will see past what you are gearing towards and take it as blatant disrespect but kudos to you for trying....smh

  • Guess Who

    Sandra is a very unhappy person with no self love.

    She hates being black - especially a dark black - and she hates being gay. She hates those things which makes up a part of her.

    I'm not throwing shade. I throwing what she has GIVEN the board. I'm just glad all of her readers are not mindless sheep who turn a blind eye, agreeing with her nonsense.

  • Guess Who

    LOL..it would have been awesome if prince really made them. That was such a random thing to happen after playing basketball, lol.

  • Kanyade

    RIP Charlie Murphy. Saw the news and was saddened. Condolences to his family.

  • EScrazy

  • Shanna Brown

    You give Dave Chapelle a pass who said worse when the man was alive and suffering, but want to trash me over an imaginary hint. Ok love.

  • Shanna Brown

    You pressed or nah?

  • Shanna Brown

    This is a disrespectful blog lol. Why even post him passing on here on general? Are you new?

  • Birdman24

  • SpillyNillie

    Just when I thought Sandy was no longer running this blog. Silly me! Hey, Sandra!

    I LOVED me some Charlie Murphy! RIP CHARLIE!

  • Genia W-m

    HIV has never been related to leukemia. Where are you getting your medical info from? Cervical cancer either.

  • Genia W-m

    Where? I haven't read that in any public health journals. Cancers period have high #s annually.

  • Genia W-m

    Yes, HPV can lead to cervical cancer but it doesn't always. Some diseases also have opportunistic infections too. What are you trying to do here? Label this poor man with no information?

  • Genia W-m

    Leukemia also killed Temptations singer Allie Ollie Woodson. One of the greatest singers on the planet.

    Some celebrities want to entertain until the end. Look at Eddie Kendricks. He could barely stand up at his last show but he did it. Charley probably was booked in advance and filled those gigs.

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    I am enjoying your responses. If one has HIV untreated, they are susceptible to opportunistic infections....one being Kaposi's sarcoma and cervical cancer was also listed beside that disease. We need Sandra to do a medical minute!!!

    micky blue was also there and said it was a lady chef.
