Po­lice to in­ter­view May­weather after boxer al­legedly wit­nessed grue­some mur­der-sui­cide

The Star (St. Lucia) - - INTERNATIONAL -

Los An­ge­les cops this week were look­ing to in­ter­view box­ing champ Floyd May­weather fol­low­ing a shock­ing re­port that he was on Face Time with a rap­per when the lat­ter sud­denly shot his wife to death. He then turned the gun on him­self. It was been de­scribed as a hor­rific mur­der­sui­cide.

The New York Daily News quotes Det. Scott Master­son as say­ing, “We’re reach­ing out to Floyd May­weather, try­ing to set up an in­ter­view. We haven’t spo­ken with him yet. We’re try­ing to set some­thing up.”

Rap­per Earl Hayes on Mon­day shot and killed his wife Stephanie Mose­ley a VH1 re­al­ity show star, and then shot him­self. The rap­per was signed to May­weather’s Money Team la­bel and re­port­edly shot her over al­le­ga­tions of in­fi­delity. Hayes was said to be on Face Time with May­weather on Mon­day morn­ing, rant­ing about his mar­i­tal woes, and was al­legedly irked even fur­ther through May­weather’s prod­ding. Hayes threat­ened to gun down Mose­ley dur­ing the Face Time con­ver­sa­tion and May­weather, who hadn’t re­al­ized she was in the apart­ment, begged him not to go through with it, TMZ re­ports. It is said that he then lost it and shot his wife who at the time was in a bath­tub inside their up­scale apart­ment near the fa­mous Grove shop­ping cen­ter in L.A.

Po­lice went to the Palazzo East com­plex, where the apart­ment is lo­cated Mon­day morn­ing, after a neigh­bour re­ported hear­ing a woman’s screams and a bar­rage of gun­shots at around 7:30. “Once at that lo­ca­tion, of­fi­cers went to the apart­ment but couldn’t make con­tact. It fit the pa­ram­e­ters for a bar­ri­caded sus­pect, so SWAT came in, breached the door and made en­try shortly after 9 a.m. They found two in­di­vid­u­als shot to death,” Of­fi­cer Jack Richter told The News.

TMZ is also re­port­ing that Hayes was tor­tured over Mose­ley’s al­leged in­fi­deli­ties with R&B singer Trey Songz. Mose­ley was a well-known dancer who per­formed along­side Brit­ney Spears and Chris Brown and ap­peared on the VH1 show “Hit the Floor”, a scripted drama about dancers on a fic­tional NBA cheer­lead­ing team. Her re­ported hookup with Songz took place about two years ago and was the rea­son for the cou­ple’s break-up ac­cord­ing to TMZ.

Hayes, 34, and Mose­ley, 30, were mar­ried in 2008.
