Often, bad things happen to people who have worked hard all their lives. Sometimes it might be ignorance, and other times, it might be a stroke of bad luck, but whatever the case, it is often sad to see someone who has struggled die moneyless.

Known for his raunchy and scatological style of comedy, Redd Foxx, was one comedian to watch out for back in the ’80s and ‘90s. But with a series of unfortunate events befalling him, Eddie Murphy had to pay for his funeral.

PAYING FOR FOXX’S FUNERAL
According to Murphy, he and Foxx shared a close and beautiful relationship. In an interview with Vanity Fair, when asked about his relationship with his late friend, Eddie Murphy revealed that they were close and he did love Foxx.

“Redd Foxx, I had to physically pay for his funeral, and buy his headstone, and do all that stuff.”
