Tyrese Gibson Threatens To Quit Fast & Furious Franchise If Dwayne Johnson Renews His Contract

Following the recent feud rocking the family, Tyrese Gibson is threatening to quit the Fast & Furious franchise if Dwayne Johnson, who he calls a “clown” and a “selfish champ,” is in the upcoming ninth film.

His rant, posted on Instagram on Wednesday, marked his harshest words yet against the actor, with whom he has feuded over the movie’s delayed release date.

Last month, Universal Pictures announced a standalone spinoff movie starring The Rock and fellow cast member Jason Statham would hit theaters in 2019, the year the ninth Fast & Furious film was originally supposed to hit theaters. The studio said the latter flick’s release date would be moved to 2020. Tyrese, who plays recurring character Roman Pearce, blames Dwayne for the delay.

“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 (sic),” Tyrese wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, alongside a selfie of main star Vin Diesel with his arm around him, standing next to Dwayne. “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.”

“I was never mad at The Rock – I was just mad that he was ‘pitched’ an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally,” Tyrese said in another Instagram post on Wednesday. “I’m almost broke paying legal fees and is doing what we committed to doing for the #FastFans and #FastFamily cause the fast is tradition it’s not just another Movie…Fast was created to COUNTER images of racism to counter that WE ARE NOT ONE RACE…… So the rock how does it feel bro?…. going home to your daughter every night…. it’s was 60 days before I seen my baby….. and all I asked you to do ‘privately’ was NOT accept a role that would deeply effect us all.”

“You are simply NOT the people’s champ,” Tyrese continued, referring to Dwayne’s WWE nickname. “You are a selfish champ.”

He said that in addition to his legal fees, a top talent agency has been unable to book him work because his ex-wife Norma Gibson “killed” his reputation. She has not commented. The actor and his ex-wife are involved in a child custody battle over their daughter Shayla, 10. She recently obtained a temporary domestic violence restraining order, claiming he physically abused her and their child when she was married to him between 2007 and 2009.
