TYRESE Gibson has branded Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson “selfish”.
The 38-year-old rapper-and-actor insisted he doesn’t have a problem with his ‘Fast and Furious’ co-star but is upset the ninth instalment of the popular franchise was recently delayed until 2020 because a spin-off movie starring the former wrestler and Jason Statham is slated for a 2019 release and thinks the decision to push it back is outrageous.
Speaking to TMZ, he said, “I don’t know what they are doing. Everybody is coming at me like I am hating on Dwayne for the spinoff but I’m not. The truth is I just wish he was releasing it at a different time. It’s not a conflict. ‘Fast and the Furious’ is like a holiday. The ‘Fast and the Furious’ family, the trucks the people who have been with us for 16 years, you know, pushing our release date back. It’s only happened one time in the fast and furious franchise when we lost our brother Paul Walker.
“You know, so what’s the reason we are pushing the date back for this one? So you know, I just got a problem with the way it appears Dwayne is selfish, it appears he is so focussed of furthering his own self-interest. He is making decisions from the seat he is sitting in.” – BANG!
