Floyd Mayweather Finally Sits Down With LAPD Regarding Earl Hayes Murder-Suicide
Earlier this week, we told you that Floyd Mayweather was wanted for questioning by the detectives investigating the murder-suicide involving his friend, Earl Hayes. As you may call, it was reported that Mayweather was on the phone with Hayes discussing his wife, Stephanie Moseley’s alleged infidelity prior to storming into the bathroom and killing her.
“We know that there’s a relationship there,” said Detective Scott Masterson. “If he has anything significant to add to the investigation, we want to know.”
According to TMZ, the boxing champ finally sat down with the LAPD for what turned out to be a 2-hour interview to discuss the shooting.
During the interview, Mayweather reportedly told investigators that he was on FaceTime with Hayes Monday morning and that the troubled rapper walked away from the phone and shot Moseley. He confessed to discussing the dancer’s supposed infidelity, but denied riling him up. After shooting Moseley, Mayweather says that Hayes returned to the phone and continued talking. Hayes then began telling the boxer that he intended to shoot himself and Mayweather says that he pleaded with him not to. Unfortunately, his pleas fell on deaf ears.
When questioned by detectives about why Hayes chose to call him, of all people, Mayweather expressed that he and Hayes were best friends and that he was trying to say goodbye.
