Tyrese Gibson says he'll quit "Fast & Furious" franchise if The Rock stays


Tyrese Gibson says he's not making any more "Fast and Furious" movies if Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is on board. Several of the franchise blockbusters including the most recent, "Fate of the Furious," filmed in Atlanta. That was the eighth one. No. 9 is on the horizon. (BTW The Rock celebrated Christmas instead of Halloween this week .. but he had a good reason .)

"Hello world.......... hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe........ I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman," he posted on Instagram. Here's a link to the entire post, which is not entirely SFW or a family-friendly news blog.

Tyrese also posted this recent clip of The Rock zinging his album. It's also NSFW.

Their feud seems totally legit and not at all like a quirky publicity stunt, sort of like this pair of Instagram videos The Rock and Kevin Hart posted:
