Floyd Mayweather “had conversations with” friend and rapper Earl Hayes before Hayes allegedly gunned down his wife, VH1 star Stephanie Moseley, while she was in the bathtub Monday morning before turning the gun on himself, a law enforcement source confirmed to the Los Angeles Times.
Hayes, who was once signed with the boxer’s record label, allegedly called Mayweather “in a rage” over his wife’s infidelity while in his Los Angeles apartment. TMZ reports that it was over FaceTime when Mayweather told Hayes to leave Moseley, claiming she was “bad for his career.” Mayweather apparently didn’t realize Moseley was in the apartment.
Investigators are now trying to obtain electronic records of the incident, and LAPD Lt. John Ratke wants to question Mayweather about any conversations he had with Hayes the day of the shootings.
From the LA Times:
“Los Angeles police received calls about 7:30 a.m. that shots had been fired and a woman was screaming in the apartment in the 300 block of Hauser Boulevard in the city’s Fairfax neighborhood, LAPD Officer Jack Richter said. SWAT officers were summoned after the incident turned into a barricade situation.
When officers arrived, they heard additional gunshots and rushed into the apartment. There they found Hayes’ and Moseley’s bodies.”
A Los Angeles County coroner’s official said the autopsies’ results won’t be expected for another day.
