As the rap and dance worlds mourn the loss of Earl and Stephanie, a shocking new report claims that his friend Floyd urged him to end things with his wife moments before their deaths.
HollywoodLife.com previously reported that Floyd Mayweather, 37, allegedly witnessed the Dec. 8 murder-suicide of Earl Hayes, 34, and Stephanie Moseley, 30, via FaceTime but now it sounds like the boxer could have been even more involved in their tragic deaths that we thought. A new report claims that Floyd pushed Earl to leave his wife “to the point [where] Hayes gunned her down.”
Floyd Mayweather: Earl Hayes & Stephanie Moseley’s Deaths Prompted By His Advice?
TMZ is reporting that Floyd “whipped his friend Earl Hayes into a frenzy over his wife’s infidelity, to the point [where] Hayes gunned her down.”
Floyd encouraged Earl to leave Stephanie not only because she was reportedly unfaithful with R&B star Trey Songz, 30, but also because Floyd believed she was “bad for [Earl’s] career,” according to the site. During the FaceTime call that reportedly took place before and during the final moments of the couple’s lives, Floyd even told aspiring rapper Earl that he was “weak” for not divorcing the VH1 Hit the Floor star.
That’s when, according to TMZ, Earl told Floyd that he “was going to gun down Stephanie,” and Floyd “begged” him not to pull the trigger.

Despite Floyd’s attempt to calm Earl down, his friend then allegedly went into the bathroom and fired 10 to 12 shots at Stephanie while she was in the bathtub, TMZ reports. When police arrived at the scene, Earl reportedly fired one last shot from inside his home, taking his own life.
The LAPD now wants to question Floyd about the murder-suicide, sources tell TMZ.
So tragic. Our thoughts go out to Stephanie and Earl’s loved ones during this very difficult time.
