Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson FINALLY Explains What Caused His Fast & Furious Feud With Vin Diesel!

no title
Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are just two wheels spinning in opposite directions — which is apparently what led to lots of friction between the two on The Fate of the Furious set in 2016.
At least that’s what The Rock says was the cause of his now-famous beef with his Fast 8 costar in a new interview with Rolling Stone.
The feud first came to light in August 2016, when the Rampage star wrote an Instagram caption thanking his hard-working crew and female costars, but slammed an unnamed “candy ass” male costar.

After a few more passive aggressive social media posts, it became clear the candy ass in question was Diesel. But we still never found out what when down between the two… until now!
Johnson confirms he and Diesel “were not in any scenes together” in the new interview, revealing that their trouble basically came down to a disagreement about professionalism. He told the publication:

“Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer. And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach movie-making and collaborating.”

Makes sense, given that Johnson’s original post blasted male costars that don’t “conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals” on set.

While the two still may not completely see eye to eye, the conversations helped the WWE star gain a better understanding of Diesel:

“It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not. But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have.”

Wait, so the drama is completely over? Not so fast…

“Actually, you can erase that last part about ├óΓé¼╦£no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”

There’s our alpha male!
The Rock is “not quite sure” whether he will return for the ninth Fast & Furious installment, but confirms he’s hard at work making the upcoming Hobbs and Shaw spinoff, in which he will star alongside Jason Statham, “as good as it can be.”
No one tell Tyrese Gibson, or we’re gonna have more Fast & Furious drama than we can keep up with.
