*Floyd Mayweather was finally interviewed by Los Angeles police regarding the murder-suicide case of his friend Earl Hayes and Hayes’ wife Stephanie Moseley.
In a two-hour interview Wednesday, the boxer told detectives he desperately tried to talk Hayes out of killing himself, reports TMZ. He also confirmed that he was on FaceTime Monday morning with Hayes when the rapper walked away from the phone, into the bathroom and shot his wife several times.
Floyd told detectives after Hayes shot his wife, he came back to the phone and continued their conversation, saying he was going to shoot himself. Mayweather pleaded with him … to no avail.
Before the shooting, Mayweather also acknowledged he was talking with Hayes about Stephanie’s infidelity, but denies riling the rapper up.
Detectives asked Floyd why Hayes called him at 7 a.m. Mayweather said it was because they were best friends and Hayes was trying to say goodbye.
In the days following the incident, Mayweather was spotted at the Staples Center laughing and smiling alongside model Liza Hernandez in courtside Lakers seats.
