In an Instagram announcement, the singer/actor claimed that their “history and mutual respect” would make it difficult for Tank and himself to find a new third member.
Not too long after, Tyrese posted a video response to Tank.
"Why don't you tell them the truth? I get $150,000 a show, what do you get per show?" Tyrese said, with the caption, "Being #1 for 16 weeks has its benefits fellas - I guess I'm the real #RnBMoney."
Tank fired back with a meme claiming that he wrote and produced TGT's music.

Reports from earlier this week claimed the Empire actor wanted to leave the show because he thought his character was beneath him.
But in an Instagram posted late Thursday night, Byers refuted the rumors, writing he has nothing but love and respect for the series.
"How could I think of demanding something larger than Andre," he noted, "where I get to express a man with Bipolar disorder, who is on a spiritual journey to find his identity?"
Byers's message comes ahead of the second half of Empire's second season, which returns March 30.

I'm so proud, so happy, and so lucky to be a part of this cast. This show has started my career. See you in Season Three!"
Previous reports indicated the Yale-educated actor grew unhappy with the direction of "Empire" and his character, and wanted to cut ties with the No. 1 television show to pursue a movie career.
