Before her gig on “Hit the Floor,” Moseley also appeared on the big screen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Mirror Mirror and Sparkle.
HollywoodLife.com reports Moseley had an affair with Trey Songz a few years back and her husband evidently never got over it. Sources close to the couple told HollywoodLife.com;
“He was always a controlling guy, but things were getting out of hand. [Earl] was paranoid that [Stephanie] was cheating on him and had threatened to kill himself in the past if she ever left him. The tragic part is that she wanted to leave him at least two months ago and was afraid to end things. She said she didn’t want to hurt him and now she’s no longer with us.”
According to Fox411, Earl Hayes was the son of soul legend Isaac Hayes, the rapper was known to run with boxer Floyd Mayweather’s Money Team. In fact they were known to be good friends. Speaking of which, Floyd may have witnessed the murder/suicide. Apparently, Hayes and Mayweather were FaceTime with on another prior to the shooting.
According to TMZ, Money May was pleading with Hayes to get himself together, but his efforts fell of deaf ears. The boxer has since acknowledged he was a witness and heard everything. Mayweather is said to be in shock and having an extremely difficult time dealing with seeing the horrifying murder/suicide unfold.
Trey Songz was devastated by the news and took to Twitter to acknowledge Moseley's death.
