Tyrese Gibson's Feud With Fast And Furious Co-Star Dwayne Johnson Is Over
Good news for those worrying about the ongoing beef between Fast and Furious co-stars Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson - it's officially over.
Former model Gibson and wrestler turned Hollywood omnipresence Johnson had been battling it out since 2017 on social media, after the former took issue with his former colleague getting his own spin-off movie, Hobbs & Shaw.
However, talking on an episode of Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz, Gibson said: "Me and The Rock peaced up, by the way. We talked for, like, four hours about three weeks ago. It was great."
He added: "What's interesting about The Fast & Furious is: It's not about any of us individually.
"We're like the UN at this point. Everyone gets to go to the theatre and say, 'He and she looks like me.'"
Gibson didn't sound entirely over it when he said he wouldn't be looking to do his own spin-off, however, as he explained: "I just could not make it about me. That'd be really strange."
Back in 2017, Gibson had exploded on Instagram in reaction to the ninth instalment of the franchise's release date being changed at the request of his co-star.
He wrote: "#PSA Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU - And like you, DJ even if they call I will not be deleting this post - Gn folks see you in 2020 April #FastFamily right?"

Gibson also added, "Nah..... it's about #TeamDewayne #3yrs will it be worth the wait? #NoShaw just Hobbs will this be another #BayWatch? Guys guys just relax I'm just a passionate film critic."
In fairness to Johnson, he didn't really rise to Gibson and the beef very much seemed to be one way.
In fact, talking on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, he expressed his sadness at the issue, calling it 'disappointing'.
He said: "That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I had been friends with Tyrese for a very long time.
"I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was pretty one-sided and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media."
Johnson added: "Apparently, he was going through some stuff, too, in his personal life.
"But, no, we haven't talked and I don't see where we would and, to me, there's no need to have a conversation."
That now looks to have changed and, to be honest, it's probably good for Gibson that it has.
After all, would you want to pick a fight with The Rock?
