Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather claims to have witnessed a horrifying murder-suicide happen in real-time as he was on “FaceTime,” a video chat service, with one of his best friends on Monday morning.
Rapper Earl Hayes, furious over allegations that his wife had been unfaithful, called Mayweather on FaceTime Monday morning, TMZ reports. Hayes reportedly told Mayweather that he was going to kill his wife, VH1 star Stephanie Moseley.
Sources close to Mayweather reportedly told TMZ that the boxer attempted to talk down the rapper and prevent him from doing something extreme.
Sadly, the boxer’s pleas didn’t work as Hayes allegedly pulled out a gun and shot his wife before turning the weapon on himself. It wasn’t immediately clear exactly what Mayweather witnessed on FaceTime, but he has apparently confirmed he was a witness and “heard everything,” the report adds.
Law enforcement sources said residents heard screaming before gunshots rang out on monday morning. When officers responded to calls of shots fired, they found both Hayes and Moseley shot dead.
Hayes was apparently part of Mayweather’s “Money Team.” The rapper allegedly accused his wife of cheating on him with a famous singer, TMZ notes.
