Absolutely Devastating News For Eddie Murphy This Morning

News has just come in that Eddie Murphy’s older brother, Charlie Murphy, has passed away from leukaemia, aged just 57.

A stand-up performer in his own right, Charlie helped to write many of his brother’s most famous films, including Norbit and Vampire in Brooklyn.

Tributes are flooding in for the star, who say they were touched by his sense of humour, when they honoured him on social media.

Fellow comedian Chris Rock was among the first to tweet his condolences, writing: “We just lost one of the funniest most real brothers of all time.”

Former basketball great Magic Johnson tweeted: “I haven’t seen anything as funny as Charlie Murphy & Dave Chappelle’s skits on the Chappelle’s Show!”

Rest in peace, Charlie.
