A horrific murder suicide took place in a high-end Los Angeles apartment building on Monday, but the only character in this story you’ll have heard of before is champion heavyweight boxer Floyd Mayweather. TMZ reports that Mayweather was FaceTiming with his friend Earl Hayes, when Hayes threatened to kill his wife for cheating.
Floyd Mayweather is reported to have witnessed the murder/suicide of his close friend and rapper Earl Hayes and his wife Stephanie Moseley over a Facetime call on Monday.
According to United States’ news outlet TMZ, Mayweather is said to have been called by Hayes on Monday morning, with the rapper claiming that his wife had been cheating on him.
Moseley, 30, was a star on VH1’s drama series Hit The Floor, but Los Angeles police confirmed yesterday that she had been shot by her husband Hayes, 36. Hayes was the son of singer-songwriter and actor Isaac Hayes.
Hayes believed his wife, dancer and actress Stephanie Moseley, was having an affair with another rapper, reported by TMZ to be Trey Songz. Mayweather pleaded with Hayes not to shoot Moseley, but he shot her nearly 10 times anyway.
Neighbors heard the woman’s screams and the ensuing gunshots and called police. A SWAT team broke down the apartment door. But when Hayes heard them he fired two more times, killing himself with the last shot and scaring the SWAT team back out of the apartment.
Hayes and Moseley’s bodies were found in the bedroom, with the only witness to the crime scene being Mayweather, who heard or saw the whole thing over FaceTime.
Floyd is in shock and is having extreme difficulty facing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder/suicide.
