Floyd "Money" Mayweather, is reportedly in shock after being a witness to the murder-suicide of Earl Hayes, 34, and wife, Stephanie Moseley, 30, via FaceTime with Hayes.

Earl, a close friend, entourage regular and once-rapper with the former Mayweather-owned Philthy Rich Records, reportedly called the boxing champ via FaceTime early Monday morning in a rage after hearing that his wife had allegedly been unfaithful. According to TMZ, Hayes then pulled out a gun and shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself — all while the undefeated champ was still on the phone.
