The 26-year-old singer reacted angrily to an image Tyson, 44, shared of himself and his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran on his Instagram account, but Chris has subsequently acknowledged he overreacted and has issued an apology.
The 'Loyal' hitmaker tweeted: ''I'm light skin! I'm always in my feelings.
''No drama! People are really starting to make this s**t an issue. I can be a real one and say that I was wrong for even pressing an issue. (sic)''
Chris - whose on/off relationship with Karrueche dates back to 2011 - later added: ''I can be a man about it.''
Relations between Chris and Tyson turned sour over the weekend, when Chris reacted furiously to the photo of the model alongside his former girlfriend.
He wrote: ''U wanna keep walking them runways. I need ta legs for that. Keep playing like I ain't with the bulls**t (sic).''
The controversial star also ridiculed Tyson's stint at Chippendales in Las Vegas.
He said: ''Be in Vegas soon. Keep playing ima f**k ya baby momma and then whoop yo child like he mine. (sic)''
However, Tyson refused to back down and responded by tweeting: ''It's all about fun in Vegas. Come thru papa. (sic)''
And their feud escalated further when he shared a video of himself down the shooting range, captioning it: ''Just in case you forgot! #pewpew #nra #bang. (sic)''
It's time for a riot grrrl revolution.
