AceShowbiz - It seems that Tyrese Gibson is still upset after his meltdown video. Now, his frustration apparently comes from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's involvement in the upcoming "Fast and Furious" spin-off which consequently delays "Fast and Furious 9". On Wednesday, November 1, the actor announced that he wouldn't reprise his role as Roman Pearce if Johnson was involved in the upcoming movie. "I'm sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce," Gibson wrote his ultimatum on his personal Instagram account.
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
The hostility toward Johnson started when Gibson pleaded his co-star not to delay the development of "Fast and Furious 9". But it turned out that the ninth installment of the series was pushed back in order to prioritize a standalone film centering on Johnson's character. Gibson's annoyance then grew into a feud. "Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU," the actor ranted. Then Gibson shared a video of the former wrestler calling his latest album "Black Rose" "a big piece of dog s**t," stating that "haters come in many forms."
Another "Fast and Furious" star, Vin Diesel, reacted to the feud. "I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed... but it would be unfair to say it is anyone's fault," Diesel commented. "As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan's perspective has been instrumental in procuring success."
This isn't the first time that Gibson's social media posts have been covered in the news. The actor, who has portrayed Roman Pearce since the second installment of the "Fast and Furious" movie franchise, is now locked in a custody battle with his former wife over their daughter, Shayla. The star posted his gut-wrenching Instagram meltdown video, claiming that he had to pay $13,000 a month in legal fees, but his wealthy friends were not showing up for him in his time of need.
After his meltdown, Gibson posted another video saying he was okay, but he was not "putting this up to calm people down." He stated that he was simply a father and implied that he only wanted her daughter back with him.
