You'll Definitely Be Teary-Eyed Once You Read The Story of Charlie Murphy's Wife's Death
The death of comedian/actor Charlie Murphy has touched so many people. After years of being behind the scenes and in the background of the entertainment industry, Charlie spent the last decade of his life finally in the spotlight. Even though his passing has taken a toll on all of us, what’s even more heartbreaking is the death of his wife.

In 2009, Charlie’s wife, Tisha Taylor, died after battling cancer. Charlie has admitted on multiple occasions that it was a devastating loss that he almost couldn’t handle. In an interview with “Black Doctor”, he revealed all of the things that he dealt with when she was fighting for her life. He says that he first found out that she had Cervical cancer when he found her one day, crying in their kids’ room. It was even more devastating because his wife was always a health conscious person. 

Tisha did not smoke, drink or did drugs. She was perfect compared to the people who are still living that did all of the and above. It’s rare to find a person who doesn’t partake in a little bit of sinful fun. Most of us can’t even imagine having dinner without a good cocktail. 

Charlie went on to say that even as her health continued to deteriorate, his wife continued to help her family. She even made her own arrangements for her funeral. Everything was taken care of when she died. Tisha was the type of woman who made sure that everything was organized and taken care of.

Unfortunately, Charlie died earlier Wednesday after secretly battling Leukemia. Even though he was on chemotherapy and seemed to be getting better, it wasn’t enough. His family is shocked by this loss and misses him dearly. 

Charlie had been in the entertainment since the late 80s. He didn’t become famous until he appeared on “The Chappelle Show”. The show became a springboard for his comedy career.
