Tyrese Gibson speaks out on Fast 8 row
Tyrese Gibson insists Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson hasn't got a problem with him.
The former WWE star hit out on Instagram earlier this week about his "unprofessional" 'Fast 8' co-stars, but Tyrese, 37, insists he has no idea who his pal was referring to, but knows he has no "problem" with him.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, Tyrese shared a video of The Rock singing to his daughter Shayla, eight, and wrote:
"Let me calm you guys all the way down........ I don't know WHO he has a problem [WITH]and I don't have any details of WHAT those problems are - as a matter of fact if I DID know I would tell you s--t!!!
"Why are you guys so impressionable? A man wouldn't be singing from his heart and soul to another mans little angel if he had a problem with her dad (sic)"
Tyrese went on to praise his friend as "humble and professional" but admitted he felt it was wrong of him not to make clear who he was referring to in his post.
He continued: "Does any of us know why bro decided to jump out there with his post? No...... Would one assume that IF he's going to jump out there and generalize and say 'Male Co-Stars' he would be more clear and call out names??? Of course he should of.
"DJ happens to be one of the most humble, down to earth and professional people I've ever worked with and more importantly he's my brother we have NEVER had a problem and will never have a problem (sic)"
Following The Rock's rant, it has been claimed it was aimed at Vin Diesel and the two stars have now held a meeting to settle their differences.
The wrestling champion - who also stars alongside
Scott Eastwood, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell and Ludacris in the next installment of the action franchise - no doubt angered his castmates by saying aside from working with Charlize Theron, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez and a great backroom staff, the experience he's had making the movie genuinely makes his "blood boil".
Dwayne - who plays bounty hunter Luke Hobbs - wrote on Facebook: "This is my final week of shooting Fast & Furious 8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one.
"An incredible hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story (sic).
"Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses."
