Tyson and Ruckus were at the Up & Down nightclub and reportedly started trading blows after the DJ made an inappropriate gesture towards Beckford.

According to TMZ.com, Beckford previously dated Australian model Shanina Shaik and remained friends with her after they split and she began dating Ruckus, who proposed to her in January (16).

"There's history here," a source tells the New York Post's Page Six column. "Tyson and Ruckus used to be friends and Tyson got really upset when Ruckus and Shanina started dating.

"He has previously made comments about them being a couple, and this has been building up for some time."

The reported fight continued outside the club and police officers were called to the scene, but the two left before cops arrived.
