Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Responds To Tyrese Calling Him Out On Social Media

Dwayne Responds to Tyrese


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has no interest in patching things up with his “Fast & Furious” co-star Tyrese, which he said during an interview on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live!”

If you recall, Tyrese blasted Johnson for taking an offer to star in a “Fast & Furious” spinoff, and the former wrestler hasn’t responded until now.

“Congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock,” wrote Tyrese in 2017. “You guys are just amazing. You really broke up the #FastFamily. I tried to warn you guys. You thought I was hating. I was simply fighting to keep the family together.”

“If you move forward with that #Hobbs movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter,” he also wrote. “I don’t wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about. I’m on your timeline, ‘cause you’re not responding to my text messages.”

Johnson said he was saddened by the whole ordeal but sees no reason to smooth things over with the actor and R&B singer.

“The answer is no,” he stated when a caller asked if he’s spoken to Tyrese since those scathing messages. “You know, that whole thing with Tyrese was pretty disappointing because I’d been friends with Tyrese for a very long time.”

“And I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it,” Johnson continued. “And it was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media. We haven’t talked, and I don’t see where we would, and to me there’s no need to have a conversation.”

It was about 10 months that Tyrese took Johnson to task, which was right around the time he had a public meltdown on social media. Besides getting into it with his “Fast & Furious” co-host, the Watts, Calif. native cried about his daughter, talked about his financial woes and said he couldn’t secure work.

Tyrese also lied about Will and Jada Pinkett Smith giving him $5 million to keep him afloat, then chalked up his behavior to medication he was taking.

There’s no word if he has any major acting gigs on the horizon since his last film was 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” and his last TV gig was Fox’s “Star,” also last year.
