The Rock is currently on the promo trail for his new movie “Skyscrapper,” and during his stop in the clubhouse to chop it up with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” he opened up about his “Fast & Furious” co-star.
“We haven’t talked at all,” The Rock explained after a caller asked him if he had spoken to Tyrese since their feud last year.
“That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I’ve been friends with Tyrese for a very long time. And, you know, I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was really one-sided and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media.”

Johnson continued: “Apparently, he was going through some stuff too in his personal life. We haven’t talked and I don’t see where we would, and to me, there’s no need to have a conversation.”
At this point, The Rock says he’s over it…and Tyrese.
“To me, there’s no need to have a conversation,” he added.
Tyrese previously said he squashed his beef with The Rock after having a heart-to-heart with one of the actor’s associates. However, the two still haven’t talked it out.
At of the time of this post, Tyrese had not responded to The Rock’s latest comments.
In another segment, Johnson said his ‘Fast & Furious’ spin-off will help bring “more freshness and longevity” to the franchise but he’s “not quite sure” whether he’ll appear in the 9th film.
Hear what Dwayne said about Idris Elba’s character being the main villain in the spin-off series via the clip below:
The Rock’s “Fast & Furious” drama with Tyrese seemed to have started when he called an unnamed co-star “chicken sh*t,” “unprofessional,” and “candy a**” on social media. Fans assumed he was firing shots at his co-star Vin Diesel.
The “Baywatch” actor was asked what was the most unprofessional behavior he witnessed from Vin on set and if he would ever film a scene with him ever again, he pleaded the fifth.
Peep the clip below:
Dwayne also dished on “tension” between himself and fellow WWE star John Cena.
“I had left and he had done a series of interviews and I just felt … somebody had referenced me and said ‘Is Rock ever come back?” and he was saying, ‘I’m not quite too sure,’ and I didn’t like how he said it and it stuck with me,” The Rock said. “Years later when I went back, I talked to Vince McMahon and we thought what if we took that and created this thing and I said perfect. Once it was all done, like all silly beef like that, it was all cool.”
“I think we squashed that,” he added. “As a matter of fact, John is going to star in one of my movies that I’m producing. He’s doing great in his transition (to acting) and really wants to work hard.”
