The Loyal hitmaker appeared to be jealous of Beckford partying with fellow model Tran in Las Vegas, where the fashion hunk is appearing as part of male stripper troupe the Chippendales, and he fired off a series of angry tweets on Sunday (24May15).

The messages, which have since been deleted, reportedly included a thinly-veiled threat seemingly aimed at Beckford, which read: "U wanna keep walking them runways. I need ta legs for that (sic). Keep playing like I ain't wit the bulls**t."

Beckford subsequently hit back, urging Brown to confront him in person, stating, "It's all about fun in Vegas, come thru papa (sic)."

He then posted video footage of himself at a gun range, with the caption, "Just in case your (sic) forgot!"

A riled up Brown, who performed in Sin City on Sunday night, later returned to Twitter to taunt Beckford, suggesting he had called on local police for protection by uploading a picture of a group of cops standing outside a building.

He captioned it, "This n**ga Tyson got the whole Vegas PD out here. Suckah (sic)!"

Tran dumped Brown in March (15) after it emerged he had fathered a baby daughter with his friend Nia Guzman last year (14). The singer and Guzman have since become embroiled in a fight over child support for little Royalty.
