Fists flying over a female! Tyson Beckford and DJ Ruckus got into "an all out brawl" over a violation of the unofficial bro code.

"Bro code," for all intensive purposes, states that you don't go after a friend's girl without prior approval from said friend.

TMZ reports that the incident between the two one-time friends occurred last week in New York at Up & Down nightclub and it was all over Tyson's ex, Victoria's Secret model Shanina Shaik. The website says that Tyson was infuriated that Ruckus, a DJ popular with many celebrities, maintained a friendship with Shanina after their split. The two eventually began dating, sending Tyson into a fit of anger.

Over the last several months, Ruckus has posted images of Shanina several times. In April he posted a photo of he and Shanina at Coachella, telling her "love you with all my heart!"

There is no love lost between Ruckus and Tyson though.

According to TMZ, Ruckus saw Tyson in the nightclub last week and flipped him off. Tyson then approached Ruckus and said if he had beef with him they should "take it out in the street."

Ask and ye shall receive.

The two former friends got reportedly violent. "At one point Tyson was on top of Ruckus, pounding away, when one of Ruckus' friends began punching Beckford in the head," the website said, adding that "Ruckus punched Tyson in the groin, and Tyson returned the favor with his knee."

Police eventually showed up but the fight was over and all the men had already left. No arrests have been made.

Tyson has been known to mix it up from time to time, or at least never back down from a challenge. Last year he and Chris Brown beefed over social media after the model posted an Instagram photo of himself with Chris' ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

Chris implied that he was going to break Tyson's legs. Tyson posted a video of himself at a gun range.

The singer eventually apologized.

"I'm light skin! I'm always in my feelings," Chris said on Twitter. "No drama! People are really starting to make this s--- an issue. I can be a real one and say that I was wrong for even pressing an issue." He then followed that up with a third tweet that read, "I can be a man about it."
