In a direct jab at Tyrese, Niko revealed their shared past, highlighting the close-knit bond of the 90s R&B brotherhood. “Tyrese used to sleep under our pool table when I was a kid,” Niko wrote. “I know the 90s RnB brotherhood blood is thicker than anything you should sit this one out champ.”

The rift between Brian McKnight and his eldest biological children has been a subject of controversy, with the singer facing criticism for publicly disowning them in favor of his stepchildren and newborn son. Brian’s actions have sparked outrage and condemnation, especially in light of his recent claims that his ex-wife, Julie, hindered him from supporting Niko during his cancer battle.

In response to the ongoing drama, Tyrese came to Brian’s defense, emphasizing that the intricacies of family dynamics are often misunderstood by outsiders. He argued against the notion of condemning parents for strained relationships with their adult children, citing the complexities and challenges that can arise over time.

Despite Tyrese’s attempt to mediate the situation, tensions continue to simmer, it remains to be seen whether reconciliation will happen between McKnight and his family.
