One gone, too early; Charlie Murphy who opened for Comedy Central sketch-comedy series Chappelle's Show used to say that he is worth every penny that people pay for his shows, which is totally true. His legacy isn't his $2 million net worth, or earnings from 28 movies, 25 series, or 2 video games he has been in! It actually is his children that he left behind.
Charlie Murphy grew up as a middle child of Charles Edward Murphy & mother, Lillian Murphy, after his father passed away when he was a teenager, Charlie was arrested and spent one year in jail, and after he was released he joined the Navy as a boiler technician and received $26,810.
After Five years, in Navy, he took the voluntary retirement and started accompanying Eddie on his shows, back in the 80s.
God Loving Christian Who Lived a Simple Life
Despite being remembered for Harlem Nights, The Boondocks, Black Jesus, Norbit, and The Chapple show, the Yankee lived a normal life.
Despite having cancer, he toured with certain comedy groups, took care of his wife Tisha Taylor, who also died of cancer before Charlie and was raising two children alongside his wife.
Not only that, he even supported his former girlfriend and her son who was 21 years old while he died. He was so much influential, that his brother Eddie named his 10th child after Charlie.
Lived in a Three Bedroom House In NY
Yes! Though he was one of the most successful comedians from NY, he along with his family lived in a three bedroom house in NY City. Most people think that he was earning enough to support his family but his children's education, his wife's medication along with his medical bills were always one withstanding problem in his life.
Reportedly, his first born adult son is in-charge of his property that would be distributed equally after his children with Tisha are of a legal age.
