It’s been one of the most talked about rivalries in recent cinema, with some massive egos in the centre of it all.
We’ve spoken about it before here at WTNH, but there is some good (?) news to talk about now.
It seems that Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Fast & Furious feud has come to an end.
Yep, the most ridiculous series of quips and gripes has seemingly been put to an end, at least for now.
Taking to Instagram, Tyrese Gibson uploaded a post where he details how he had a “heart to heart” with one of Johnson’s representatives, complete with a photo of him, Dwayne, and co-star Vin Diesel standing together with Johnson’s arms most definitely draped over the shoulder of his F&F co-stars.
Want you guys to know I️ had a real Heart to Heart with one of Dewayne’s associates and this will be my last post about him…….. I️ repeat my last…. I️ respect the associate who called.. My story will never change I️ was never DJ’s Co-Star… I’m Shayla’s Father first…. Justin Lin is back in the driver seat that’s exciting cause it going to feel like the true #FastFamily all over again….. When we see Justin we see Paul…..
Granted, no-one in the picture looks particularly happy to be in the picture, but still.
This post came just a few days after Tyrese Gibson threatened to leave the franchise if Dwayne Johnson was still on-board when Fast 9 came out.
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
So, it’s all been sorted seemingly.
Of course, there was probably never any doubt that Tyrese would ever really leave the Fast & Furious franchise, especially as you consider how much money he’s earned from it.
So, we can safely close the book on this entry in WTNH.
As many of you know, we don’t really touch anything F&F related, but we thought we’d let you know.
Fear not, regular service will resume immediately.
