This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Tyson Beckford and DJ Ruckus reportedly got in a nasty fight on Thursday night outside of Up & Down nightclub in NYC over Shanina Shaik.
According to TMZ, the former friends have been going at it for some time because Ruckus hooked up with Shaik after she dated Beckford.
Bro code violation??
Apparently, the musician is pissed because Beckford still remains friends with Shanina even after their split.
So when the to dudes ran into each other in the club, Tyson reportedly approached Ruckus after Ruckus flipped him off. Things escalated when they decided to "take it out in the street."
The outlet reports the fight was extremely violent — with both parties taking several blows.
By the time cops arrived, everyone had fled the scene.
Yikes!! Not cool, guys.
