Stephanie Moseley, VH1 Hit the Floor Star, Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide With Rapper Boyfriend Earl Hayes
Stephanie Moseley, who appeared on the VH1 show “Hit the Floor,” is dead in an apparent murder-suicide involving her husband, rapper Earl Hayes. Police made the grisly discovery in Los Angeles on Monday. Moseley starred as a Devil Girl cheerleader on the series, and had previously appeared on “Hellcats.” She also served as a choreographer and dancer in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Mirror Mirror.
According to TMZ, residents of the La Palazzo apartment building near The Grove heard gunshots early Monday morning, leading to a response from a SWAT team. When police knocked down the door, they discovered the bodies of Moseley and Hayes. Both had died of gunshot wounds.
The initial radio call to police reportedly indicated that there were approximately a dozen shots. Police heard additional shots fired after they entered the building. Law enforcement sources are now saying it appears Hayes shot Moseley and then killed himself.
TMZ is reporting that Hayes had accused Moseley of cheating with a famous singer. Hayes was at one time signed to Floyd Mayweather’s record label. Mayweather was reportedly on FaceTime with Hayes during this morning’s tragedy, attempting to get his close friend to remain calm. The champion boxer is said to have heard the shots ring out through the phone.
In addition to her acting roles, Moseley had served as a backup dancer for stars like Britney Spears and Chris Brown, who took to Instagram to share a picture of himself with Moseley, writing, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family.” And Moseley’s “Hellcats” co-star Ashley Tisdale tweeted, “RIP Stephanie Moseley. I’ll always remember dancing with you on #hellcats. Such a beautiful kind spirit. I’m praying for your family.”
In a statement, VH1 says, “We are incredibly saddened to hear the news of the passing of Stephanie Moseley. VH1 and the entire ‘Hit The Floor’ family send our thoughts and condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time.” Gossip Cop will have updates.
