The news of a very tragic story has been developing today involving rapper, Earl Hayes, son of legendary singer, Isaac Hayes. The rapper, once signed to boxing superstar, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.'s Philthy Rich record label, allegedly shot his wife, VH1's Hit the Floor star, Stephanie Moseley, and then turned the gun on himself.

According to multiple reports, Mayweather witnessed the entire thing via Facetime video chat. MSN News and TMZ report more on the story:

Hayes called Floyd on FaceTime Monday morning in a rage, over claims his wife had been unfaithful. According to our Floyd sources, Earl said he was going to kill his wife. The champ was pleading with him to get a grip ... to no avail. Floyd will not say how much he saw, but he acknowledges he was a witness and heard everything. Floyd is in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder/suicide.

Police responded to reports of multiple gunshots emanating from an upscale residential complex near The Grove in Los Angeles, California. First responders -- including the local SWAT Team -- discovered the bodies in what is being described as a grisly scene.

Mayweather has yet to comment on the story, however, he did retweet ex-best friend, 50 Cent's Instagram post which appears to be an olive branch extension.

"RIP Hayes, @floydmayweather you are my little brother. All can think about is what you said to me up stairs. Don't you ever do nothing to your self no matter what champ. We can fall out and fight or what ever,but I don't want to see you go out like that. #SMSAUDIO #POWER #FRIGO"
