Nothing was the same after Tyrese sarcastically congratulated Dwayne Johnson for getting a Fast & Furious spinoff. They haven’t spoken to each other since, and Tyrese now feels like maybe he shouldn’t have said some of the sentences he said out loud about it.


The idea of a spin-off starring Johnson’s character Hobbs has never sat well with Tyrese, who felt like it ruined the family and compromised the release date of yet another Fast & Furious sequel. Tyrese has since calmed down and realized he shouldn’t have been so grumpy in public. “I have yet to talk to The Rock to this day, and we will have a conversation,” Tyrese said during an interview on Van Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast. “I found myself being the messenger on behalf of various people associated to the franchise, but stupid me was the only one who went public about those feelings, which is my own fault. It’s not professional. It’s not cool.”

Mmm, retrospection hurts sometimes, doesn’t it? Glad this one-sided feud may be coming to an end soon.


When asked about their fracture during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last week, Johnson said, “No, no, we haven’t talked at all. That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I’ve been friends with Tyrese for a very long time.”

Johnson added, probably because he read my post, “I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was really one-sided and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media.”

What Tyrese said about being a messenger for other people’s opinions is hilarious to me because I see this happen a lot in corporate settings: a group of people talk shit together then one gets ballsy and speaks to their conversations in public thinking they’ll have support, and then the other gossipers back off leaving that one person looking foolish on their own. smh

Also, Tyrese is likely medicated now so hindsight is more like 40/20 for him, right?
