Sad news to report. Floyd Mayweather jr. was on Facetime with his friend, Earl Hayes- an aspiring rapper- went to the home of his estrange wife- actress and dancer, Stephanie Mosley- and shot her, then himself. Hayes was upset because he believed that Stephanie was cheating on him.
Stephanie Moseley was gunned down in the Palazzo apartments near The Grove shopping plaza around 7:30 AM Monday morning. Neighbors heard her screaming and approximately 10 Shots, the SWAT team came, busted through the barcaded door and discovered the 2 bodies.
Earl reportedly called Floyd and told him he was going to kill his wife. Per TMZ, The champ was pleading with him not to do it. Floyd won’t reveal how much he saw, but he acknowledges he was a witness and heard everything.
Sources connected with Hayes tell us … around 2 years ago he separated from Stephanie because of what he says was her affair with singer, Trey Songz. They couple got back together but, as one friend put it, “He was crushed and never got over it.”
Hayes appeared on VH1’s “Hit the Floor” as one of the Devil Girls, and was a back up dancer for Chris Brown and Usher.
50 Cent posted a message to Instagram saying he was there for the boxer, and to never “go out like that,” seemingly imply that Floyd may have had thoughts of suicide at one point. Floyd followed and reposted the message.
RIP Hayes, @floydmayweather you are my little brother. All can think about is what you said to me up stairs. Don’t you ever do nothing to your self no matter what champ. We can fall out and fight or what ever,but I don’t want to see you go out like that. #SMSAUDIO #POWER #FRIGO
Prayers out to the family and friends of Stephanie and Earl. Sending love and light to Floyd also.
