Bikini snap of Karrueche Tran triggers death threats from member of Chris Brown's crew after R&B star complimented her 'booty'
A bikini snap of Karrueche Tran has sparked death threats.
The model, who split from Chris Brown earlier this year, received some flattering compliments from R&B star Marques Houston after sharing a sultry picture of herself to Instagram.
Houston's online praise, however, caught the attention of a member of her ex boyfriend Brown's crew, who promptly made a less than veiled threat by posting a picture of automatic firearms.
Controversial: A bikini snap of Karrueche Tran posted to Instagram on Thursday has sparked death threats
Houston commented on Tran's bikini snap: 'dizayum look at all that booty, can't even see your face cuz that booty in the way'.
But his online note was noticed by a member of Brown's crew, who TMZ claim is a known gangmember.
Brown's friend wrote alongside a snap of two firearms: 'N***'s show no how to disrespect, I don't care if they not still together #MH'.
Brown also weighed in (before deleting his comment), writing 'Go home Rodger', a reference to Houston's famous line on 1990s sitcom Sister Sister, according to Urban Islandz.

Karrueche dated Brown on and off from 2011 until earlier this year when it was revealed he had secretly fathered a baby girl.
And it would seem her fans approved, with the saucy image clocking up a staggering 100,000 likes from her 3.4million Instagram followers.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time since their split that threats have been made in relation to Tran following her split from Brown.
A history of it: In April, Brown made thinly veiled threats toward Tyson Beckford on social media after the model posted a selfie with Tran
In April, Brown and Tyson Beckford made thinly veiled threats toward each other on social media.
Problems between the two appear to have stemmed from a selfie Tyson took of himself posing with Chris' ex.
Karrueche, who split with Chris after it was revealed he had fathered a child with another woman during their relationship, was in Las Vegas at the same time as former runway model Tyson.
The following day, Chris tweeted (it has since been deleted): 'Be in Vegas soon. Keep playing ima f*** ya baby momma and then whoop yo child like he mine.'
Hitting back: Tyson, 44, shared a video on his Instagram account of himself shooting an AR15 (a high powered assault rifle) with the caption, 'Just in case you forgot!'
The Fine China singer included another note on his Twitter feed (which has also been subsequently deleted): 'U wanna keep walking them runways. I need ta legs for that. Keep playing like I ain't wit the bulls**t'.
Then a few hours later, in an apparent response, Tyson, 44, shared a video on his Instagram account of himself shooting an AR15 (a high powered assault rifle) with the caption, 'Just in case you forgot!'
Then, as if goading Chris, he wrote on Twitter: '@officialchrisbrown it's all about fun in vegas. Come thru papa.'
Police: Brown later insinuated that Tyson had gotten law enforcement involved
But while Tyson may have pretended to have the firepower, the singer certainly had the man power behind him.
The Forever hitmaker was joined upon arriving in Sin City the next day by a big group of people including his good friend, Kid Red, who also weighed in on the drama via Instagram.
He wrote: 'MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND aka the n***as will be out. We just came to party tho, unless a n***a wanna try us…
'And that includes u model n***as "Cough Cough #TysonBeckford. We see everything LiL n***a." #DontPlayYaSelf. …@tysoncbeckford'
Sexy: Karrueche was keen to direct her followers towards her new snapchat profile, sharing another bikini-clad snap along with her username on Wednesday
Fighting for her: The 27-year-old model showcased her naturally flawless complexion as she posed make-up free for another selfie
The post was apparently deleted by Instagram, as Kid Red then followed up with another photo showing him, Chris, and their friends.
He captioned this one: 'They deleted my last post LoL ... That's how they do the real n****s. I know one thing The Wolves is in Vegas'.
As they arrived in town, Chris later posted a picture of a large police presence, insinuating the 44-year-old had gotten law enforcement involved.
The picture was taken by Chris' pal Wack Star and makes references to the Bloods gang which the New Flame singer is affiliated with.
The 26-year-old captioned the image: '@wackstar damn blood ... This n***a Tyson got the whole Vegas PD out here. Suckah! This fruitz! #500.'
Since then Brown tendered an apology online, admitting things had gotten out of hand.
No more: It was Chris fathering a child with another woman that finally made Karrueche take a step away from her former lover and their volatile relationship
