Good news, Fast and Furious fans: It looks like Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne Johnson‘s issues are officially over. The Fast and Furious conflict has been ongoing. And only a few days ago, Tyrese Gibson posted a picture of himself, The Rock, and Vin Diesel to Instagram, with a caption that claimed he would he would leave Fast & Furious 9 if Dwayne Johnson was part of it.
Although in another post he was clear that he wasn’t “mad at the Rock,” the fact that Johnson had negotiated a spinoff for himself bothered Tyrese, who’s been going through a particularly difficult custody battle with his ex. He apparently felt the spinoff (and delay of Fast 9) hurt him financially — and in effect, hurt his progress with the custody battle. We’re sure The Rock wasn’t trying to hurt anybody with his actions — c’mon, look at this guy — but we see how it bothered Tyrese.
Luckily, today Tyrese took back his promise not to appear in another Fast and Furious movie with The Rock, and we’re super glad.
We just love everybody and want all of our boys to get along, okay!
Although it isn’t clear if Tyrese and The Rock actually talked it out, Tyrese shared an Instagram post with another caption about the issue. This time, he said that he had a “heart to heart” with someone in The Rock’s camp, and the problem was resolved.
The caption further expressed Tyrese’s enthusiasm for the franchise and his excitement to get back to the original fam. He even included a touching shout-out to the late Paul Walker.
I think we’re all looking forward to seeing this #FastFamily united again.
