Hayes, an artist on Mayweather’s Money Team record label, was on the phone (via FaceTime) with Mayweather when things went left between him and Moseley and the boxing champ was a witness to the horrific event, according to TMZ:
Sources tell us … rapper Earl Hayes called Floyd on FaceTime Monday morning in a rage, over claims his wife — VH1 star Stephanie Moseley — had been unfaithful.
According to our Floyd sources, Earl said he was going to kill his wife. The champ was pleading with him to get a grip … to no avail. Floyd will not say how much he saw, but he acknowledges he was a witness and heard everything.
Floyd is in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder/suicide.
Naturally, the violent and tragic incident stunned friends and associates.
“I’ve had sit-downs with both of them so whatever happened behind those doors we’ll never know,” Burrel L. Wilks, who described himself as a friend and life coach to Hayes, told NBC Los Angeles.
“But I heard out of her own mouth, he never raised a hand on her so this is kind of stunning,” Wilks said.
It’s also worth noting that some media outlets had reported that Hayes was the son of the late singer/actor Isaac Hayes. That has been refuted by one of the singer’s daughter, who tweeted this message: “my father #IsaacHayes had 11 children Earl Hayes is not one of them.”
