- Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says he hasn’t talked to Tyrese Gibson since their “beef” started and doesn’t plan to.
- “There’s no need to have a conversation,” Johnson said Thursday on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
- Gibson has blamed Johnson for delays with the ninth “Fast and Furious” movie.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his “Fast and Furious” costar Tyrese Gibson still aren’t on speaking terms, and there doesn’t seem to be any plans to change that.
Johnson opened up about the seemingly one-sided beef with Gibson, who he’s starred with in four “Fast and Furious” movies, on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on Thursday.
Someone called into the show to ask whether Johnson had spoken to Gibson recently. Johnson said that not only had they not spoken, there was “no need to have a conversation.”
“No, we haven’t talked at all, and, you know, that whole thing with Tyrese was pretty disappointing because I’d been friends with Tyrese for a very long time,” Johnson said. “And I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media … We haven’t talked, and I don’t see where we would, and, to me, there’s no need to have a conversation.”
In October, Gibson blamed the delay of the next movie in the franchise on Johnson, who is starring in the spinoff “Hobbs and Shaw” next year alongside Jason Statham. The ninth “Fast and Furious” is set to come to theaters in 2020 but was originally scheduled for 2019.
Gibson isn’t the only “Fast and Furious” star Johnson has been caught up in drama with. When last year’s “The Fate of the Furious” was wrapping production, Johnson accused Vin Diesel of being unprofessional, and he recently implied he still has ill will toward Diesel.
But Johnson wasn’t as open about Diesel on “Watch What Happens Live.” When Cohen asked what the most unprofessional thing Johnson witnessed Diesel do on set was, Johnson said he’d “plead the Fifth.”
Despite what his costars may think of him, Johnson has no roadblocks on the horizon. You can see him in theaters this weekend in “Skyscraper.”
