Rapper shot dead his VH1 star wife, then killed himself as ‘Floyd Mayweather watched on FaceTime’

The rapper who shot his VH1 star wife and then turned the gun on himself while FaceTiming boxing champ Floyd Mayweather had flown into a rage over her alleged fling with a singer known as ‘Mr Steal Your Girl’.

Earl Hayes, a friend and associate of Mayweather Jr., shot wife Stephanie Moseley, a dancer who starred in the show Hit The Floor, over her alleged infidelity with singer Trey Songz.

Hayes is believed to have shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself at a high-end L.A. apartment complex, according to police sources.

Sources connected with Hayes told TMZ that roughly two years ago the rapper separated from Stephanie because of her alleged affair with Songz.
The couple reconciled, but a source told the news site that Hayes ‘was crushed and never got over it’.

He is said to have continuously brought up the affair and accused his wife of having multiple flings with various other entertainers.

Hours after the news of the deaths broke, on Monday night 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.’

Grammy-nominated Songz – real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson – earned the nickname ‘Mr Steal Your Girl’ from his songs that talk about his various conquests and brag about stealing other men’s girlfriends.

He also has a song called I Invented Sex and will be supporting Nicki Minaj on her European tour next year.

TMZ reported that Mayweather was a witness to the murder-suicide and heard everything after Hayes called him in a rage over his wife’s alleged infidelity.

When the rapper said he was going to kill his wife, Mayweather pleaded with him not to – but to no avail.

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.

When they sought to go into the room, they heard two more gunshots, police said.

‘I suddenly heard screaming,’ neighbor Charles Segal told NBC ‘and then the screaming stopped and the next minute cops all over.’

Burrel Wilks, Hayes’ life coach and close friend, described the married couple as longtime partners who were in the process of breaking up, reports KTLA.

‘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,’ he said.

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 appeared in movies including The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Mirror Mirror and Sparkle and as a backing dancer for singers including Janet Jackson, Chris Brown and Britney Spears.

On Monday, Chris Brown posted a tribute to Moseley on Instagram. ‘RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family,’ he wrote.

Rapper Hayes was once signed to Mayweather’s record label Philthy Rich Records and the couple regularly partied with the boxing champ.
