Rapper Earl Hayes allegedly murdered wife Stephanie Moseley on Monday in Los Angeles. Moseley, a beautiful and talented dancer who toured with the likes of Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Usher, and Chris Brown, starred in VH1’s dramatic series Hit the Floor.
TMZ reports that an angry Hayes, a member of Floyd Mayweather’s Team Money, talked to the undefeated boxer on FaceTime prior to the murder-suicide. The call allegedly continued through the event. The rapper, in the midst of a breakup, charged his wife with, according to TMZ, “infidelity with a famous singer.” The website reports that the welterweight fighter attempted to talk his friend down from his rage to no avail.
A Los Angeles SWAT team reportedly discovered the couple’s bodies in a high-end Los Angeles apartment. Neighbors report hearing an argument prefacing shots.
Hayes once belonged to Mayweather’s music label and frequently partied with the boxer. Hayes’s track last year, “On the Block,” combined a multitude of hip-hop clichés, boasting of expensive cars, selling narcotics, and living it up with strippers.
Great weekends with gorgeous b-tches/Bottles and ice for my crew/Gigantic guns for these n-ggas/F—ed up attitude—I’m cocky, arrogant, and chauvinist/Greedy and f—ing stubborn, I want more than I am supposed to get/Weed, coke, drank, pills/Half naked b-tches dancing/Shut the door, forget your problems/Enjoy this party we are having.
The “party,” and the rapper’s “great weekends,” ended, as weekends usually do, in the early hours of Monday.
