The Rock And Vin Diesel Finally Addressed The Reports That They Still Hate Each Other
A little over a week ago, just prior to WrestleMania, we brought you a report that said Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel were still beefing so hard that they had to be kept apart on the Fate of the Furious press tour.
According to The Hollywood Reporter…
Sources say the two tough-guy actors are being kept from one another as the Fast team continues its press tour in the run-up to the F. Gary Gray-helmed film hitting theaters April 14.
“They’re keeping them separated as much as possible,” says an insider.
That sequestering will be most obvious today when Universal brings footage of the film to CinemaCon in Las Vegas, where Diesel, Charlize Theron and the rest of the cast will be on hand to promote the eighth installment in the $4 billion franchise. That is minus Johnson, who is already back on the set of Ballers in Miami. But just 12 hours earlier, Johnson was in Las Vegas, participating in Paramount’s Baywatch presentation at CinemaCon. And Monday night, he introduced Sony’s Jumanji at the high-profile exhibition showcase.
This all stemmed from a post The Rock shared on Instagram at the close of filming Fast 8 where he called “someone” a candy ass and “chicken shit.”
Turns out that the tirade was reportedly directed at Vin Diesel.
In the months since it had been speculated that their feud was all a work for some kind of promo at WrestleMania.
That ended up not happening.
Nor did Vin Diesel ever come through on his promise to tell us “everything.”
