Catwalk hunk Tyson Beckford is facing the wrath of Nick Lachey after the supermodel allegedly tried to muscle in on his new girlfriend. MTV host VANESSA MINNILLO has been dating Jessica Simpson's ex-husband after starring in his music video WHAT'S LEFT OF ME, but was targetted by Beckford at New York City nightclub Stereo last week (begs26JUN06). The supermodel reportedly grinded against Minnillo on the dance floor, before lashing out at Hollywood columnist PEREZ HILTON who rushed to the pretty brunette's aid. Stereo owner MIKE SATSKY tells website PageSix.com, "When Perez started dancing with her, Tyson put his hand up and said, 'Yo, you're trying to put a cool on my steam. Back up.' "Tyson was about to throw a punch. I jumped down from the banquette and was like, 'Yo, Tyson, chill out.' We had to break it up. He was being unreasonable and extremely rash."
