When they sought to go into the room, they heard two more gunshots, police said. ‘I suddenly heard screaming,’ neighbor Charles Segal told NBC ‘and then the screaming stopped and the next minute cops all over.’
Burrel Wilks, Hayes’ life coach and close friend, described the married couple as longtime partners who were in the process of breaking up, reports KTLA. ‘I’ve had sit downs with both of them so whatever happened behind those doors we’ll never know, but I heard out of her own mouth, he never raised a hand on her so this is kind of stunning,’ he said.
Moseley played ‘Devil Girl/Arelly’ in Hit The Floor, the VH1 drama series about an NBA Cheerleading team called the Los Angeles Devil Girls. She had also appeared in movies including The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Mirror Mirror and Sparkle and as a backing dancer for singers including Janet Jackson, Chris Brown and Britney Spears.
On Monday, Brown posted a tribute to Moseley on Instagram. ‘RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family,’ he wrote. Rapper Hayes was once signed to Mayweather’s record label Philthy Rich Records and the couple regularly partied with the boxing champ.
