Report: Earl Hayes, Stephanie Moseley Die in Murder-Suicide

VH1 star and husband found dead in Los Angeles apartment.

Stephanie Moseley, star of VH1's Hit the Floor and her husband, rapper Earl Hayes, were found dead in Los Angeles Monday (Dec. 8) in an apparent murder-suicide, TMZ reports. Hayes reportedly shot Moseley inside their apartment complex before turning the gun on himself.

Moseley, 30, was a budding actress and accomplished backup dancer who toured with the likes of Chris Brown, Britney Spears, Usher and Rihanna. Sources say Hayes accused Moseley of cheating with a singer, rumors of which have not been substantiated. 

Hayes, 34, was once signed to Floyd Mayweather’s TMT record label, and was a friend of Keyshia Cole. The singer announced on Instagram today that Hayes had “passed on” without going into detail. “Be kind to people,” Cole wrote. “You never kno the fight they may be fighting. #RiP @earlhayes gonna miss your crazy self!!! #LoveForLife!!!!

Tributes have been pouring in for Moseley as well. Brown posted a message on Instagram about the Canadian beauty, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family.”
