Eddie Murphy’s older brother, Charlie Murphy died from leukemia yesterday morning (April 12) in a New York hospital, TMZ reports.

The 57 year old is famously known for co-starring on the “Chappelle Show,” including his skits about Prince and Rick James. He co-wrote “Norbit” and “Vampire in Brooklyn” and starred in “Are We There Yet?” His wife, Tisha died in 2009 from cervical cancer as well.

Murphy has been undergoing chemo, so the death came as a shock to his family members because they thought he was doing better. The family released a statement:

“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 outpouring of condolences and prayers. We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us.”

The latest victims of celebrity photo hacking are Kate Hudson and Miley Cyrus!!

Alleged nude photos have leaked online but it might be fake because it has NOT been “officially” confirmed. The batch of pictures show a woman that looks like Hudson both with clothes and without.

It’s still unclear whether Hudson will take legal action but she’s known to fight back. Back in 2005, she sued a publication after numerous gossip magazines claimed she had an eating disorder.

Shia LaBeouf will be spending a month in complete isolation in a cabin in Finland. The project is called #ALONETOGETHER and involves two other members- Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner.

Their only way of communication with the outside world is coming via text to visitors in a Helsinki museum. You can visit the cabin in the museum and send them a text, which they can ONLY respond to visitors and not talk to one another.

Plus, you can view a livestream of all of this!

Lastly, Orlando Weekly reports on the Star Wars Convention taking place at the Orange County Convention Center.

This event is a BIG deal, in fact there’s tons of fans lining up early to get into the panels- some are even pitching a tent!! Pretty much everyone will be there including Company President and Executive Producer, Kathleen Kennedy, “The Last Jedi” director, Rian Johnson and even Luke Skywalker himself!!

There’s four straight days of panels, screenings, droids, workshops and exhibits starting TODAY and goes through Sunday, April 16.
