- Tyrese Gibson said, in an Instagram post, that if Dwayne Johnson is in the ninth “Fast and Furious” movie, he will not return to the franchise. Gibson blamed the one-year delay of the movie on Johnson agreeing the make a spinoff movie to be released next year. Gibson said he needs the work because he’s “almost broke swimming in legal fees.”
Tyrese Gibson’s feud with Dwayne Johnson has entered a new realm: The Ultimatum.
On Wednesday, Gibson, who plays Roman in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, took to his Instagram and continued his mostly one-sided feud with costar Johnson, who plays Hobbs in the movie, by stating that if The Rock returns for the ninth “Fast” movie, he will not return as Roman.
“You mess with family and my daughter’s survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a ‘Clown,'” Gibson wrote in his post.
Here it is:
Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone – #OurChildrenMatter
Gibson has taken to Instagram numerous times since news broke that the ninth movie in Universal’s lucrative “Fast” franchise won’t be coming until 2020. The actor-musician has put the blame on Johnson, believing that the movie was pushed so a spinoff movie starring Johnson’s Hobbs character, and Jason Statham’s Shaw, could be released in 2019.
Another Instagram post by Gibson on Wednesday went a little deeper into why Gibson is so angry at Johnson – or the situation Johnson has put him in.
“I was never mad at The Rock – I was just mad that he was ‘pitched’ an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally,” Gibson wrote. “I’m almost broke paying legal fees.”
Gibson continued: “Going home to your daughter every night…. it’s was 60 days before I seen my baby….. and all I asked you to do ‘privately’ was NOT accept a role that would deeply effect us all……. You are simply NOT the people’s champ….. you are a selfish champ…..,” he wrote. “I’m almost broke swimming in legal fees, CAA tried but couldn’t book me anything cause my ex wife killed my reputation so no one wants to hire me.”
Gibson is currently in a custody battle with his ex-wife for his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.
Here’s that post:

It sounds like Gibson is in a tough spot, but butting heads with one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars at the moment might not be the right play.
