Floyd Mayweather Pleaded With Earl Hayes Over FaceTime
According to TMZ, Floyd told detectives that Earl called him on FaceTime at 7am, where they discussed Stephanie’s alleged infidelity, but denies inflaming the rapper.
During the course of the conversation, Floyd explained that Earl put the phone down, walked into the bathroom and shot his wife 10-12 times as she took a bath. He then came back to the phone where he told Floyd he was going to shoot himself. Despite begging him to reconsider, his friend took his own life. Whether Floyd witnessed this or not has not been revealed.
The police were called about hearing shots being fired and a woman screaming. When they arrived at the scene, they found the couple’s bodies.
Although a source told TMZ that, “Floyd is in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder/suicide,” he has been universally criticized for attending a Los Angeles Clippers game only hours after the incident on Dec 8.
An eyewitness source tells Hollywoodlife.com, “He was laughing, on his phone and having a great time at the game, he didn’t show any signs of being in a weird or bad mood. He was in bright spirits and looking back at the night now knowing what everyone knows, it is extremely odd.”
