Eddie Murphy Reveals $100,000 Bet with Richard Pryor on Jimmy Kimmel Live

During his appearance on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Eddie Murphy shared some of the fascinating stories he has collected over the years in Hollywood. They shed light on his experiences with legends like Richard Pryor, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra. During the interview, Murphy discussed a surprising bet he made with Pryor, the star-studded event he hosted for Davis Jr.’s 60th Anniversary, and the surreal movie nights at Davis Jr.’s house.

One remarkable story Murphy shared was about a $100,000 bet with Richard Pryor. As Murphy revealed in the liner notes of his 1985 album, How Could It Be, he had a bet with Pryor that if he released an album composed purely of music, Pryor would have to pay him $100,000. Murphy won the bet when he released the album, but Pryor never paid him.

Murphy also reminisced about hosting Sammy Davis Jr.’s 60th Anniversary special, where he was surrounded by iconic figures like Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, and Stevie Wonder. He shared anecdotes about his encounters with these music legends and the surreal moments he experienced.

In addition to his past experiences, Murphy discussed his upcoming projects, including his new Christmas movie and the eagerly awaited Beverly Hills Cop 4. He humorously recounted an incident on set, where he couldn’t keep up with the physical demands of his iconic character, Axel Foley, despite his timeless appearance.

Despite his long and successful career, Murphy’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! demonstrated his enduring charm and charisma, leaving fans excited for what’s to come.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on ABC.
