Everyone’s talking about aging rapper Jay Z and acting legend Robert DeNiro beefing at Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday bash the other night.
Page Six reports that DeNiro was heated at Jay Z who refused to return his repeated phone calls. Jay Z supposedly promised to record a rap song for the Tribeca Film Festival. But for whatever reason, he backed out of his commitment at the last minute.
Hoping to make him change his mind, DeNiro called the 43-year-old rapper to give him an offer he couldn’t refuse. But Jigga refused to call DeNiro back.
So when Jay Z strolled over to Bob’s table at DiCaprio’s party, DeNiro called him out for being a fake and a fraud. Even Beyonce couldn’t calm the actor down.
I guess camel lips thought he was too important to call DeNiro back?
From Page Six:
“Bob was sitting at a table, and when Jay-Z went over to say hello, De Niro told Jay that he never called him back,” a source says.
A spy then overheard De Niro complaining to the rapper, a fellow TriBeCa resident, about a song Jay-Z agreed to record for the Tribeca Film Festival. De Niro had reached out to discuss further details, but Jay never returned his calls.
“Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation,” the spy says. “He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude.”
When Jay-Z tried to make a joke of it, saying he is terrible on the phone, a source says, “De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful.’”
“Beyoncé came over, but that didn’t calm Bob down,” the source said, adding that afterward, “It was the talk of the party.
