Yesterday, Stephanie Moseley, star of VH1’s Hit the Floor, was found dead of an apparent murder/suicide at the hands of her rapper husband, Earl Hayes.
According to TMZ, the horrifying incident was reported after neighbors heard the sound of her screaming followed by gunshots. When the SWAT team arrived, they discovered the two bodies.
It has since been revealed boxer Floyd Mayweather was on Facetime when he “witnessed” the rapper shooting his wife in their LA home before taking his own life.

Sources close to the 37-year-old featherweight champ say he was trying to calm down his friend, who said he was going to kill his wife because he believed she had been unfaithful. Despite Floyd’s best efforts, he wasn’t able to talk Earl down.
The boxing champ won’t say what he witnessed on the other end — but acknowledges he heard “everything.” Understandably, he’s still in shock and is having a difficult time having seen the horrific incident unfold.

TMZ is now reporting it was an affair with Trey Songz that haunted Earl, causing him to kill his wife and end his own life. Sources close to Earl say the couple broke up two years ago after Stephanie — a well-known and accomplished backup dancer — had a fling with the 30-year-old singer. Though the two have since reconciled, the alleged affair continued to trouble Earl.
Trey Songz remained silent when reached for a comment, but he did take to Twitter to express his grief. He wrote, “R.I.P. babygirl. Once an angel on earth, now watching over us from Heaven. You’ll b missed but never forgotten. Love”
