Earl Hayes & Stephanie Moseley Death: Chris Brown, Rihanna + More React
Moseley's untimely death, which was caused by the hands of aspiring rapper Earl Hayes, prompted both Rihanna and Chris Brown to show their respect for the late dancer. After the news of Hayes and Moseley’s death broke on Monday (Dec. 8), Breezy took to Instagram and posted an old photo of him and Moseley together. The singer wrote in the caption, “RIP baby girl. Danced with me on tour and was always the coolest person. My prayers go out to you and HAZE family.”
Later, on that same day, RiRi posted an image of Moseley with the caption, “r.i.p. Stephanie.”
Family members and friends are also grieving over the loss of the married couple, who were having problems in their marriage.
"No situation’s perfect,” said actress-model Eva Marcille Pigford, Moseley’s friend (quotes courtesy of KTLA 5). “Stephanie was an absolute angel. She’s just loved. She will never, ever, ever, ever be forgotten.”
As we previously reported, world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. was apparently in contact with Hayes before the murder-suicide. Unfortunately, according to TMZ, Mayweather was unable to reach him before the tragic incident.
Moseley, who starred in VH1's 'Hit the Floor,' was known in the music world as a background dancer for such artists as Britney Spears, Pharrell Williams, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Rihanna and Chris Brown. Hayes was a rapper and a member of Mayweather's Money Team.
Meanwhile, the LAPD are still investigating the case as they continue to look for answers in this sad story.
