Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather witnessed the horrifying murder-suicide of two of his friends during a FaceTime call yesterday (Dec, 8).
The undefeated world champ was on the call to close friend and rapper Earl Hayes who was apparently furious over claims that his wife had been cheating on him.
However things started to turn serious when Earl told Floyd he had a gun and was going to shoot VH1 star Stephanie Mosely.
Attempts to talk his rapper friend out of it fell on flat ears, because within seconds of her appearing in the room, Earl drew his weapon, shot her dead, then shot himself while Floyd was still watching.
Floyd reports that even though the phone was dropped, he “heard everything”. At this point, LAPD had raced to the Palazzo East apartments after residents heard a woman screaming and up to 10 gunshots, a police spokesperson said.
And while Floyd was still on the phone to Earl, the attending SWAT team were knocking down the door of the apartment. Once inside they found a back bedroom door closed, and upon approaching it heard two more gunshots. Possibly the fatal ones.
Police confirmed the pair dead on entering the room and broke the news. Tributes have been flooding in on social media all day.
According to TMZ, Floyd is currently in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the situation.
