Close friends and family including Dave Chappelle have farewelled comedian Charlie Murphy at a private ceremony in New Jersey.

 Murphy passed away last week after a long battle with leukaemia.

 The news of his death came as a shock to many who didn't know the 57-year-old comedian was ill.

 Not pictured at the farewell was his brother Eddie Murphy who released a statement last week following his brother's death.

 “Our hearts are heavy with the loss today of our son, brother, father, uncle and friend Charlie. He filled our family with love and laughter and there won't be a day that goes by that his presence will not be missed.”

 R.I.P Charlie Murphy.
