Rapper and songwriter Earl Hayes shot and killed his VH1 star wife, Stephanie Moseley, before turning the gun on himself.
Hayes was reportedly FaceTiming with boxing champ Floyd Mayweather during the incident.
Earl Hayes, a friend and associate of Mayweather Jr., reportedly killed his “Hit The Floor” star wife over her alleged infidelity with singer Trey Songz.
Insiders reveal that Hayes and Moseley split two years ago because of her cheating with Songz.
The couple reconciled, but a source said that Earl “was crushed and never got over it”.
Hours after the news of the deaths broke, Trey Songz tweeted, “R.I.P babygirl. Once an angel on earth, now watching over us from Heaven. You’ll b missed but never forgotten. Love.”
Mayweather was a witness to the murder-suicide and heard everything after Hayes called him in a rage over his wife’s alleged infidelity.
The rapper said he was going to kill his wife and Mayweather reportedly begged him not to go through with it.
The LAPD raced to the Palazzo East apartments at 7:30 a.m. after residents heard a woman screaming and up to 10 gunshots, a police spokesperson said.
A SWAT team was forced to knock down the door of the apartment and once inside found a back bedroom door closed.
They started to go into the room when they heard two more gunshots.
Burrel Wilks, Hayes’ life coach and close friend, described the married couple as longtime partners who were in the process of breaking up.
Wilks stated, “I’ve had sit downs with both of them so whatever happened behind those doors we’ll never know, but I heard out of her own mouth, he never raised a hand on her so this is kind of stunning”.
Moseley played ‘Devil Girl/Arelly’ in Hit The Floor, the VH1 drama series about an NBA Cheerleading team called the Los Angeles Devil Girls.
She had also been a back-up dancer for Chris Brown, Britney Spears, Beyonce, and Janet Jackson.
On Monday, Chris Brown posted a tribute to Moseley on Instagram, writing, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family”.
