A VH1 star and her rapper husband are dead after a suspected murder-suicide in a ritzy LA apartment complex, Us reports. Another resident of the complex called police around 7:30am yesterday after hearing gunshots and a woman's screams; authorities arrived to find rapper Earl Hayes and dancer/actress Stephanie Moseley, who starred on the drama series Hit the Floor, dead of gunshot wounds. Police believe Hayes shot Moseley, then himself.

Hayes was once signed to Floyd Mayweather's record label—and TMZ reports that Mayweather was one of Hayes' best friends and was on FaceTime with the rapper when he witnessed Hayes allegedly shoot Moseley and then himself. Sources say Hayes called Mayweather angry over claims his wife had cheated on him and killed her despite Mayweather pleading with him to calm down. (More murder-suicide stories.)
