Reality star Stephanie Moseley & husband Earl Hayes found dead after murder-suicide
A VH1 star and her rapper husband were found dead in their Los Angeles apartment Monday morning, and it appears a well-known boxer may have been the only witness to what police are calling a gruesome murder-suicide. Hit the Floor actress Stephanie Moseley is believed to have been shot dead by her husband, rapper Earl Hayes. Though the details surrounding this terrible tragedy remain murky, the few that have developed are almost too shocking to be true.

At present, the LAPD is working slowly but methodically to get to the bottom of what appears to be a murder-suicide. Makes sense. I would imagine it is especially difficult to piece together evidence when so much of it seems to be based on bochinche. So far, there aren't any actual witnesses, unless you believe the rumor that boxer Floyd Mayweather had been FaceTiming with Hayes at the time tragic series of events went down. TMZ reports the Hayes, who'd once been signed to Mayweather's record label, called the boxer "in a rage over claims his wife…had been unfaithful." What? All of this happened because of a cheating rumor? That's the story.
According to Mayweather's sources, Hayes said he was going to kill his wife. "The champ was pleading with him to get a grip ... to no avail," notes TMZ. Hayes allegedly shot his wife then himself while Mayweather watched on in horror. But that's all speculation. Nobody actually knows what went down. What we do know is this: Residents of a posh L.A. apartment complex near the Grove awoke to a woman screaming and the sound of a dozen or so gun shots ringing out at around 7:30 a.m. Monday. The SWAT team rushed to Moseley and Hayes' apartment to find them both lying dead inside of a locked bedroom located at the back of the couple's apartment.
Over the course of her career, dancer-turned-actress Moseley worked with several big time celebs, including Chris Brown, Rihanna and Beyoncé, many of whom have taken to social media to express their heartache and condolences. "RIP baby girl," wrote Brown on Instagram. "Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family." Actress Niecy Nash shared a pic of herself posing with a smiling Moseley on Instagram. "Rip in peace @haselstar so beautiful... So talented…" Nash wrote alongside the photo. "Heaven has a new dancer for her family & those who loved her." Nash's sentiments have since been echoed countless times over as Hollywood works hard to makes sense of this senseless tragedy.
