    Charlie Murphy

    I loved his True Hollywood Stories on Chappelle's Show.

    He had leukemia.

    RIP

    R.I.P. His story on playing B Ball with Prince still cracks me up.

    Micki Free confirms that the "basketball with Prince" story really did happen:

    I had no idea he had leukemia. A lot of people didn't even know he existed. What a shame because he was a talented man in his own right. Did any of you see his last tweet?

    Which lends credence to the saying "You can't make this stuff up."

    It was my favorite skit from his true Hollywood stories, but I always thought it was made up.
