Tyrese Gibson Seems To Be Developing Some Sort Of Beef With The Rock
They've been on-screen buddies across five installments of the Fast and Furious film franchise, but now it looks as though there might be a little rift emerging between Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
Apparently, the former WWE wrestler hasn't been replying to calls and texts from the multi-talented actor, so in response Gibson, who plays Roman Pearce in the series, has delivered a savage rip to his co-star for his Fast And Furious spin-off.
It all started three days ago when The Rock posted on Instagram saying that he had a day of 'productive meetings' and 'big business deals' - in his words, getting shit done.
Secret weapon. Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD (Get Shit Done) table that's inside my trailer. This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes.

Tyrese's response was less positive. He wrote: "If you move forward with that #HobbsMovie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter - I don't wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about - I'm on your timeline cause you're not responding to my text messages - #FastFamily is just that, a family... We don't fly solo."
Clearly, it would seem Johnson was struggling to recall whatever it was they had previously chatted about, as Gibson soon turned to memes.
His next post, using the kid with veins popping out of his head, read: "When you see the bullshit with @TheRock playing out in front of you and you can't say anything cause they don't want you to win the battles and lose the war - reckless?"
When you see the bullshit with @TheRock playing out in front of you and you can't say anything cause they don't want you to win the battles and lose the war - reckless? Who me? Nah........ I'm just the last of the real ones in this town who speaks his mind openly and hope that folks grow from the truth........... The real ones do........ The real ones know that God is mad at us all cause we are NOT honoring him and giving him all the praise and glory for our BLESSED and significant life..... We have convinced ourselves that we live this life cause we work hard?? What about God? God has nothing to do with this?? Nothing? He's made - He's reminding us all that HE IS GOD he can givith life and in a blink of an eyes taketh it away....... What profits a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul... I thank God everyday that I still have my SOUL..... Without God and my soul I would be empty chasing things and people that literally mean nothing to me...... praying for all of you guys who Were directly effected by these hurricanes and these natural disasters worldwide, africa, india, and Bahamas and in Turks and Caicos and here in America- I've been in and out of the hospital 5 times dealing with health issues and I still sent 50k to houston to help in anyway I can cause it's about being selfless......... I went as far as I could go to help the cause I hope they do right by those funds and get it to the people....... You're on the Forbes list is that all you're donating? Oh ok........ God bless

Tyrese then spilt over into a longwinded post about his faith and helping those who have become victims of hurricanes Irma and Harvey in the Caribbean and South America.
He may have taken another dig at The Rock towards the end when he said: "You're on the Forbes list. Is that all you're donating? Oh OK..." This is presumably in relation to the $25,000 (£19,000) The Rock said he would donate towards the Red Cross relief aid.
Tyrese then posted another lengthy post to his wall - we've summarised the key parts below - before later deleting.
- "I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star, he's my brother."
- "I'm simply trying to reach him cause he won't call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie. I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced."
- "I never ever go public with private family issues... Once you hit me back I will delete every post."
- "Love you bro and I love that Sept 11th post you just up about the families and friends of that horrific tragedy."
- "This is not a #Rant I'm no Rock #Hater and I don't want his #Life I love my own."
- "I'm doing this for the #FastFamily, I'm loyal and I apologize for being loyal but dammit I am."
Tyrese's most recent post again stated how his preferred method of communication goes.
I don't do email bruh You got my cell same San Diego # hit me

Maybe The Rock is just too busy building his campaign to run for president...?
