Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is not out here for one-sided beef! The dynamic actor appeared on Andy Cohen’s talk show to address the ongoing feud he has been involved in, with fellow actor Tyrese Gibson.
He revealed that the feud has been going on since 2017 and, according to him, it has been mostly from Tyrese’s side.
“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,” he said, smiling as he spoke to Cohen. Dwayne also said that most of the feud had occurred when Tyrese took to social media and ranted against Dwayne multiple times. He did not respond and is only speaking out now since a new ‘Fast and Furious’ spin-off is about to drop soon.
Tyrese Gibson, who has played Roman Pearce in the ‘FnF’ series, accused Dwayne of being selfish. He said Dwayne was ‘making the fast and furious franchise about himself’ and even threatened to quit if Dwayne continued with the movie. Dwayne, however, revealed that he has not talked to Tyrese at all and feels there is ‘no need’ to do so either. He just doesn’t see the point of stepping into an ongoing beef when he isn’t really part of it.
He also brought Tyrese’s personal issues to light. While he didn’t reveal what the actor had been going through, he did say that there was some stuff going on at the time that Tyrese decided to film the social media rants against him. Dwayne said Tyrese’s behavior might or might not have stemmed from his personal issues, and added that ‘there’s no need to have a conversation’ with him.
Tyrese had many conversations, though, most of them with his fans on social media. He shared two long and emotional videos in which he spoke about how torn up he was. He was not allowed to meet his beloved daughter Shayla since him and ex-wife Norma Gibson were fighting a custody battle at the time. Tyrese appeared to cry in the videos and urged the media not to take his daughter away from him, an occurrence he somehow blames Dwayne for.
“Don’t take my baby. This is all I got. Don’t take my baby, okay? I’ve been away from my baby for two months. I just want my baby and no one’s listening cause no one’s in the courtroom,” he said with tears in his eyes. He also wore a ‘Shayla Rocks’ sweatshirt and continued to break down during the video. Tyrese then told his fans there ‘will be no more Roman Pearce’ if Dwayne acted in ‘Fast and Furious 9’ and that the actor had messed with his ‘family and my daughter’s survival.’ However, he then uploaded another video in which he apologized for lying, saying he was on medication and it had influenced him. He also blamed his zodiac sign, Capricorn, for his erratic behavior.
Tyrese also urged people to stay out of his private life while simultaneously inviting them in with his emotional displays. “My private life has always been private. Do your research,” he said. He then alluded to Dwayne again when he said, “this is not about men vs. women. This is men vs. liars.”
Dwayne did not respond to any of Tyrese’s rants until now. And even then, he hasn’t revealed much of how he feels. All he has said is that he doesn’t want to engage with it. Tyrese has not yet responded and fans are awaiting a conclusion to this ongoing ‘FnF’ feud!
