Fans have been speculating this for a while and now Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has finally addressed it. He has revealed that he will no longer be a part of the Fast & Furious franchise.
It’s no secret that Johnson and Vin Diesel, the franchise’s star, have been feuding with each other for a while. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, Diesel confessed that he gave The Rock, “tough love.”
“I could give a lot of tough love. Not Fellini-esque, but I would do anything I’d have to do to get performances in anything I’m producing.”
According to Bustle, the Rock would respond to Diesel’s statement and say, “ I laughed and I laughed hard. I think everyone laughed at that. And I’ll leave it at that. And that I’ve wished them well. I wish them well on Fast 9. And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me.”
The Rock first appeared in Fast Five in 2011, and it was later reported that the two of them had beef in 2016, while filming The Fate of the Furious.
