Earlier today, American rapper Earl Hayes and wife Stephanie Moseley, a star on VH1's Hit The Floor drama series, made the rounds in social networks today in a grisly case of murder-suicide. Hayes allegedly shot Moseley at their apartment in L.A., Monday morning, U.S. time, before turning the gun on himself. The couple was in the process of splitting up, and the incident arose from Hayes accusing his wife of infidelity, according to reports by Entertainment Tonight.
Here's where this sad turn of events turns even more interesting. Hayes is apparently a member of Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s "Money Team," and, according to reports by TMZ, Floyd witnessed the entire thing.

Earl reportedly called Floyd through FaceTime angry over his wife's supposed unfaithfulness. While on FaceTime, Earl told Floyd that he was going to kill his wife, and Floyd pleaded with him to not do it. The pleas went unheard.
Floyd saw the ordeal, and as TMZ reports, "Floyd is in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder-suicide."
Man, we've never liked Floyd much around here, but this is something we'd never wish on our enemies.
