News broke earlier this week that the Money Team rapper shot the Hit The Floor starlet in their L.A. home before turning the gun on himself. Details also emerged that Floyd Mayweather, who was a very close friend of Earl’s, was on FaceTime with him just before the incident took place.
TMZ reports that the boxer sat down with police for questioning, which took about two hours, and revealed that he tried to talk his friend out of killing himself, rather than instigating it like previously rumored.
The site reports:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Floyd confirmed the story first reported on TMZ … that he was on FaceTime Monday morning with Hayes when the rapper walked away from the phone, into the bathroom and pumped multiple bullets into his wife, Stephanie Moseley.
Floyd told detectives after Hayes shot his wife, he came back to the phone and continued talking with Floyd. The boxer says Hayes said he was going to shoot himself and Mayweather pleaded with him … to no avail.
As for what happened before shots rang out … Mayweather acknowledged he was talking with Hayes about Stephanie’s infidelity, but denies riling the rapper up.
Floyd also told authorities Hayes called him at 7 a.m. that morning because he had been trying to say his goodbyes.
