The Rock made headlines this week, when he went on a rant about his unprofessional male co-stars on the set of Fast 8.
He didn’t name anyone, but sources tell TMZ he was referring to franchise star, Vin Diesel.
If you missed it, The Rock revealed that he is in the final week of shooting for Fast 8, and while he praised the female cast, he had some words for his male counterparts. “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses,” The Rock wrote on Instagram.
It was unclear who he was referring to at the time, but now, TMZ reports that The Rock butted heads with Diesel during production. Diesel is a producer and has made decisions that Rock didn’t agree with.
Apparently, it was serious enough that both had a meeting on the Atlanta set mid-day Tuesday (Aug. 9) because tensions were running so high. In a separate TMZ report, its said that Vin went to Rock’s trailer and demanded to know why he dissed him, so the two spoke privately inside. Word is, nothing was resolved.
One source said it was all about egos.
