Prince and Eddie Murphy.

Though Eddie Murphy's brother Charlie may have had one of the most memorable Prince stories of all (he famously recreated it for Chappelle's Show on Comedy Central), Eddie has a few of his own to tell.

During his appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday, the 58-year-old comedian and actor talked about a "surreal" episode in which the Purple One invited Murphy to go rollerskating:

He also told Fallon about the time Prince's car lost a hubcap outside Murphy's home, and the music star's bizarre reaction afterwards.

The "Beverly Hills Cop" star was on Fallon to talk about hosting tonight's Saturday Night Live, for which he'll be joined by musical guest Lizzo — another Minnesota music star.
