Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was on Facetime when he witnessed rapper Earl Hayes allegedly murder his wife, VH1 star Stephanie Moseley, and then turn the gun on himself, TMZ reports.
Sources say Hayes called Mayweather Monday morning on iPhone’s FaceTime video service that allows you to see the person you’re talking to.
Hayes was reportedly in a rage over allegations that his wife was cheating on him.
“Earl (Hayes) said he was going to kill his wife. The champ was pleading with him to get a grip, to no avail. Floyd will not say how much he saw, but he acknowledges he was a witness and heard everything,” TMZ reports.
KTLA-TV in Los Angeles reports that the LAPD responded to the Palazzo East apartments at 7:30 a.m. Monday, after a neighbor reported a woman’s screams and a barrage of ten gunshots.
Officers found a back bedroom door closed inside the apartment. They heard two more gunshots when they tried to go into the room.
Police found 31-year-old Hayes and 30-year-old Moseley dead inside.
Hayes is a rapper on Mayweather’s Money Team record label. Moseley is a dancer and actress on the cast of the VH1 drama series “Hit the Floor” about NBA cheerleaders.
US Magazine reports that over the years, Moseley’s worked with Britney Spears, Chris Brown, Pharrell, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Beyonce. She’s also done some modeling.
Mayweather is reportedly in shock and having a hard time dealing with the fact that he actually witnessed a murder-suicide.
