Dallas Austin’s son Tron Austin unloaded on his father in social media posts over the weekend. In one post, the 21-year-old called his music producer father a “clown”. And in another post, he wrote “f-ck Dallas”.

Tron posted an image of Dallas posing with singer Usher Raymond. The young man captioned the image “#clowns Lmao can’t get much cringier than this Lmaoo #heartbrokeboys”.

In a third image, Tron posed with his Bachelor of Science degree in music from Full Sail University in Florida. He captioned the image: “And don’t talk sh-t unless you’re educated.”

It isn’t clear what provoked the lad’s outburst at his dad. But some social media users suggest he hates both Usher and Dallas because they dumped his mother, TLC singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas.

Another motive could be financial. The child support checks stopped when Tron turned 18.

Dallas, Tron and Chilli are pictured below at Dallas’ Atlanta home during happier times in this photo dated May 27, 2011.
