Earl Hayes, the son of Isaac Hayes and one Floyd Mayweather's friends who was once signed to his label, Philthy Rich Records, was found dead earlier today. According to TMZ, neighbors in an L.A. apartment complex heard gunshots and a woman screaming earlier this morning. A SWAT team was called in, and upon arriving on the scene, found two bodies: Hayes' and his wife Stephanie Moseley. Moseley was a star of the VH1 show "Hit the Floor," and has done backup dancing for Chris Brown and Britney Spears.

Hayes' life coach, Burrel L. Wilks III, spoke to NBC Los Angeles earlier today"I've had sit downs with both of them so whatever happened behind those doors we'll never know, but I heard out of her own mouth, he never raised a hand on her so this is kind of stunning," Wilks told NBC.

We'll update as more details become available, but it's being reported as a murder suicide right now

UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that Floyd Mayweather Jr. was on Facetime with Hayes during the tragic incident. Hayes reportedly told Floyd what he was planning to do while Floyd pleaded with him to not go through with it. Floyd would not reveal how much he saw, but did confirm that he was a witness and heard everything.
