In today's horrible news, boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. was reportedly witness to a friend's murder-suicide, by way of FaceTime video chat, according to multiple online reports. Rapper Earl Hayes (son of singer Isaac Hayes), once signed to Mayweather's "Philthy Rich" record label, allegedly shot and killed his wife, VH1 star Stephanie Moseley, before turning the gun on himself.

TMZ has more:

Hayes called Floyd on FaceTime Monday morning in a rage, over claims his wife had been unfaithful. According to our Floyd sources, Earl said he was going to kill his wife. The champ was pleading with him to get a grip ... to no avail. Floyd will not say how much he saw, but he acknowledges he was a witness and heard everything. Floyd is in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder/suicide.

Police responded to reports of multiple gunshots emanating from an upscale residential complex near The Grove in Los Angeles, California. First responders -- including the local SWAT Team -- discovered the bodies in what is being described as a grisly scene.

Mayweather has yet to comment publicly.
