Tyrese says there’s no more beef between him and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
During a conversation with Comedy Central’s Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz, Tyrese opened up about his longtime feud with the fellow actor. “Me and The Rock peaced up, by the way… We talked for like four hours about three weeks ago,” he said.
He continued, “What’s interesting about ‘The Fast and The Furious’ is it’s not about any of us individually. We’re like the UN at this point. Everyone gets to go to the theater and say, ‘He and she look like me.’ If I did it with [Ludacris’ Tej], then who are we going to play off of? I could not just make it about me. I just could not.”
The bad blood between the former buds started back in 2017 when Tyrese was in a financial bind and needed the paycheck from the next franchise installment. However, Johnson ended up signing on for a solo ‘The Fast and The Furious’ spinoff, which delayed the film Tyrese was set to appear in before that one.
Johnson won’t be appearing in Fast 9, which will reportedly be released on May 28, BET.com reports.
