Dave Chappelle And John Mayer Pay Tribute To Charlie Murphy

Murphy, who was a comedian and Eddie Murphy's older brother, passed away Wednesday at age 57, after battling leukemia. Last night, Dave Chappelle reportedly spoke about the loss of his close friend and comedian colleague by stating, "Today I got some bad news".

Charlie was undergoing chemotherapy in a NY hospital, and kept his illness a secret from the public. He had said that he loved Eddie so much and found him so amusing that he didn't hesitate to confront people who did not laugh during his appearances. Murphy's heartbreaking final tweet, posted Tuesday, reads: "One to Sleep On: Release the past to rest as deeply as possible".

Charlie Murphy died knowing that his death was imminent, and he wanted to help his movie fans live a better life. The duo solidified a long-lasting friendship when Mayer appeared in the sketch "White People Dancing" on Chappelle's Show, and Chappelle was hanging out backstage during the set.

Mayer brought Chappelle onstage to close out his tour stop at the Value City Arena last night. "I'm thinking of all of you", Sandler said.
