Los Angeles police have asked to interview boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. following reports that he may have spoken to Earl Warren Hayes before the rapper killed his wife, then himself.

Detective Scott Masterson said Tuesday that Hayes and actress Stephanie Moseley had recently gotten back together.

The detective says Moseley, who'd appeared on the TV series "Hit the Floor," called relatives last week to say things were going well.

But police said on Monday, Hayes shot her and himself in their Fairfax-area apartment.

Hayes was an acquaintance of the professional boxer.

The bodies of Hayes, 34, and Moseley, 30, were found inside an apartment at the Palazzo complex in the 300 block of Hauser Boulevard and Park La Brea around 7:30 a.m. Monday, police said.

Moseley was Canadian and had moved to Los Angeles from her birthplace of Vancouver in 2004. Moseley's Internet movie database site said she appeared in a comedy, "The Best Thanksgiving Ever," which is due for release in 2015, and appeared throughout 2014 in the VH1 reality series "Hit the Floor."

The couple were married in 2008.
