CHARLIE MURPHY DEAD AT 57...mia Battle

EXCLUSIVE

0412-charlie-murphy-remembering-launch-5.jpgCharlie Murphy, Eddie's older brother, and a very successful and popular stand-up comedian in his own right ... TMZ has learned.

According to Charlie's manager, he died from leukemia Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. He'd been going undergoing chemotherapy.

Charlie famously co-starred on "Chappelle's Show" in some of Dave's most memorable skits ... including the nights Charlie partied with Rick James and Prince.

Oh how sad. sad rose

I hope it wasn't the same kind of allergic reaction my auntie suffered. She survived but she was in hospital getting chemo, went to the restroom and nearly passed out because she couldn't breathe.

Wow mister! That's ....no words. And I didn't connect about the age either.

RIP Charlie. Your talent for story telling will be missed.

I was so sad and shocked to hear that Charlie Murphy passed away. I did not even know he was terminally ill. What a heartbreaking story; he lost his wife and now their children are left without a mother and father. God, please give his children and family your love and strength during this difficult time.

.

Charlie Murphy was incredibly talented and funny as hell. I will always remember his hilarious Prince and Rick James skits he did on the Chappelle show. Good memories. Now, Prince, Rick & Charlie are all up in heaven, laughing their asses off and listening to some good jams! I will miss him! sad
