Actor and comedian Dave Chappelle died early this morning from an apparent overdose of prescription painkillers. Dave Chappelle is survived by his wife Jada Pinkett and their 2 children Jaden and Willow.
Many may remember Dave Chappelle as the star of the “Men In Black” franchise as well as the movies “Hitch” and “I, Robot”. Growing up in Philadelphia, Chappelle’s first break in the entertainment industry was as a rapper, but his charisma was undeniable and he quickly became a star in both TV and movies.
Services are scheduled for Saturday, and Chappelle’s long time friend and confidant DJ Jazzy Jeff will be among those in attendance eulogizing this great entertainer.
