Tyrese Says The Rock Is a Selfish Person: ‘That’s F—ed Up’ [VIDEO]
The drama between Tyrese and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson still rages on as the R&B singer recently explained why he has an issue with his Fast and Furious co-star.
In an interview with TMZ, Tyrese, sitting in his Rolls Royce Wraith vehicle, said that he’s not mad at the Rock for getting a spinoff, which subsequently postponed the next Fast and Furious installment.
“The truth is, I just wish he was releasing it at a different time,” he said. “He’s the reason we’re pushing the release date back now.”
“I just got a problem with Dwayne, it appears that he’s being selfish, it appears that he’s so focused on furthering his own self-interests,” he continued.
On Monday (Oct. 9), the Rock announced that he is indeed working on a “Hobbs” movie, which is slated to hit theaters in 2019. Of course, this will push back the next Fast and the Furious movie until April 2020.
“Fast and the Furious 9 is not coming out until 2020,” Tyrese tells the TMZ photog. “That’s f—ed up.”
The Rock seems to take his tiff with Tyrese in stride. In the video below, the 45-year-old actor films himself in his SUV (named “Skyscraper”) driving to work when he decides to “troll for compliments” from kids walking to school. “It’s tough being the king,” he says with a hearty laugh.
We can only guess that was a subliminal shot at Tyrese.
Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs. Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz. Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool. I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business. Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum. #HOBBS #SevenBucksProds #NewOpportunities #CandyAssesNeedNotApply JULY 2019
