Several hours after news surfaced of Charlie Murphy’s tragic passing, his younger brother, Eddie Murphy, spoke out.

The family released a statement late Wednesday that read:

“Our hearts are heavy with the loss today of our son, brother, father, uncle and friend Charlie. Charlie filled our family with love and laughter and there won’t be a day that goes by that his presence will not be missed. Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and prayers. We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us.”

Charlie died on Wednesday morning following what appears to be a very private battle with leukemia. He died in a hospital in New York City. According to reports, the family was shocked by the news because they thought he was on the verge of getting better.

The comedian, however, was well enough to post one last and final tweet before he passed. The message, that will literally give you chills, read: “One to Sleep On: Release the past to rest as deeply as possible.”

Just one day prior, the 57-year-old wrote: “Rise & Grind: Wake up with the rising sun and seize the day!”

RIP, Charlie.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
