Niko McKnight Claps Back at Tyrese for Supporting Brian McKnight Amid Family Drama

As Niko McKnight undergoes chemotherapy, he criticizes Tyrese's involvement in his estranged relationship with his father, Brian McKnight, urging him to focus on his own familial issues.

Brian McKnight's son, Niko, has some words for Tyrese, who showed the singer some support amid their fractured father-son relationship.

In his Instagram story, Niko unloaded the clip on the "Lately" singer, according to PEOPLE.

“Tyrese used to sleep under our pool table when I was a kid,” said Niko about the singer.

Brian McKnight's Ex-Wife Responds After He Calls Their Children 'Products Of Sin'

“I know the 90s RnB brotherhood blood is thicker than anything but you should sit this one out champ. You have relationships to fix with your own children and your own past decisions you've made on behalf of p - - - y and power."

He continued, "The allegiance to those two things is what keeps you guys from seeing that the only thing that matters in the end is family. Real men can see past the bulls - - -t. Let me stop though. This 46-hr chemo infusion has me ready to fade Jody," while throwing a nod to the 2001 film "Baby Boy" that he starred in as Jody. Niko is also undergoing chemotherapy as he battles cancer.

Niko wrapped his message to Tyrese, saying, “That's not right. Peace and Prosperity."

The drama between this trio began when Brian posted a video on IG in April saying, “In order to live a life that you love, you have to get rid of the evil and the negativity — even if that evil and negativity is related [to you].”

Then, a user on the platform accused the singer of disowning his eldest children, Brian Jr. and Niko, whom he shares with Julie McKnight and his daughter Brianna, all from previous relationships.

On Tuesday (May 7), Rickey Smiley entered the chat, supporting Brian's eldest kids.

" I want the adult children of #BrianMcKnight who’ve been #disowned to know they have a lot of support out here. You are not thrown away," he said in the caption of an IG video.

“...You are not thrown away, you are not garbage, you are loved..." he said in the video.

After that, Tyrese responded to Smiley's post in a series of IG Stories.

“Whatever their specific dynamic is, is a bunch of things that have been done over the years that is nobody’s business that has contributed to where they are," Gibson said, adding, "Kids out here be going above and beyond to cross you. I do not what that man… or his kids.. or anything about anything.”

“What I am talking about is I feel like it is not fair to act as if relationships between men and their children… can’t fall apart,” according to The Shade Room
