The South Coast premiere of "The Fate of The Furious”, aka Fast & Furious 8, was held at SCAD Theater in Atlanta on Tuesday, April 4. The film's stars in attendance included Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges, left, and Tyrese "Chocolate Ty" Gibson.

The movie's other stars, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron are currently over in Europe attending premieres and screenings.

Ludacris and his lovely wife Eudoxie "Fab" Bridges looked happy together on the red carpet.

Luda and his wife posed with her sister, far left, and Luda's daughter Karma Bridges, far right. I often see Karma spending daddy's money at the upscale Phipps Plaza mall in the trendy Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta.

I'm not sure if Gabrielle Union was in the movie. But she was at the Atlanta premiere.

Socialite Monyetta Shaw, left, and actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, center, attended the event with Keshia's brother.

Reality TV star Sheree Whitfield attended the premiere with her handsome 20-year-old son, Kairo Whitfield, whose father is retired NFL player Bob Whitfield.

Keshia's ex-boyfriend Big Tigger was also in attendance.

The Fate of the Furious is set in New York City, where it returns to its street racing roots. If you recall, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson got into it on and off the set because Johnson, who produced the movie, thought Diesel was disrespecting him by not showing up on set and keeping hundreds of crew and cast waiting.

Fed up, Johnson posted on Instagram: "This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one… When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right."

Afterwards, Diesel and Johnson met in a closed door meeting to iron out their differences.

  • Real Name

    I hope that Tyresse know that those weave wearing heavy makeup applying sisters will not be supporting him in this movie. I hope the sisters dont dont do it, he makes me sick!

  • Ms.Caramel

    Publicity stunting is getting old. Just let the movie play already, damn.

  • Renee26

    Kairo gets that slow look from his daddy....he is a fine specimen though

  • Renee26

    His legs were hanging off the end even back then

  • Mel

    Sheree girl I already seen what that son of yours working with and it ain't impressive so he can keep his tall ass over there. look at tyrese with all his back teefs showing in the pics. Glad Keisha is out smiling and living life.

  • Tammie Reed

    It was a fun event! Loved Sheree's makeup. Funny how after Tyrese took a few photos on the carpet then he ducked out and exited stage left, he did NO interviews lol!

  • Renee26

    Whaaat he didn't do interviews?? He's one of the last originals he needs to do his job....seems like he and Vin are being Diva's

  • Kbellaluvvs

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He was ducking those inevitable questions about his latest rants and opinions. CTHU- naw, Resee Cup...man up and get reamed a new one.

  • Scromes1212

    They tried to act like it was over after Paul died cause he was so important to the franchise smh this a money grab.

  • Sunny Days

    Tyrese looks nice but seemed over dressed compared to the others. Keisha looks great, after just having a baby and dealing with Ed's bullshit. I could only imagine the conversations she and Monyetta have ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    When will they stop ??with these movies?

  • Sunny Days

    Yeah I've been over it for a while now... Its the exact same story line.. Nothing to see

  • Rayne

    I've been over this franchise. They are the ones who got Mexicans in Chicago with them lil cars with lights up under them zooming thru traffic with all those friends with lil cars. I hate em.

  • MsPam

    How come the darkest people where in Atlanta and the lighter people were in Europe? ?

  • Scromes1212

  • Libra80sBaby

  • Libra80sBaby

    QTNA

  • shun king

    Sent the bi racial and whites to Europe and kept the dark blacks in America

  • Anunnaki

    bible scholars , is it really 2017, or could it be "14,600,589.00 year if the earth is millions of years old, how did we get 2017 and say that is accurate

    sleepy yes, need to wake up...lol

  • CrunchyBlack1

    i think they catering to the asain market to be honest, cuz i haven't watched any past the first one.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    the way they jumped the shark, is so typical of these money grab type movies that only exist to set up the sequel. miss me with that sh!t

  • CrunchyBlack1

    i just typed this to someone else. nah folk im good.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    hollyweird only cares about opening weekend numbers, back end profits and dvd sales unfortunately.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Is it me or does Sheree' son doesn't enunciate enough?? He's nice to look at if you like that type of stuff but when he's on RHOA I have to turn my volume all the way up or put on the CC when he comes into a scene....

  • pure_rachet

    I'm no scholar but I think it's 2017 years since the calendar and time keeping was started?

  • MsPam

    What does that mean?

  • MsPam

    That's what I said. I was accused of being petty!????

  • Diva4lyfe

    Yes I am with you on that one once Paul passed that should have been a wrap so I am wondering how they going to portray him not being on this one.

  • Diva4lyfe

    lmao bahahahahahaha

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Don't like Ludacris or Tyrese, they really think they are real actors!

  • stav

    He has this slow quality to his look!

  • stav

    sounds fair to me!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    "The Fate of The Furious"?
    Sounds like they're running out of good names.

    ... which is fine. Probably time for them to retire this series of endless sequels anyway.

  • Ms. Cree

    Tyrese is hella annoying these days

  • Ms. Cree

    LOL. Me too

  • Ms. Cree

    Kairo is young meat! Nice, real nice.

  • V Dubb

  • V Dubb

    Didn't he say he grew up under women? Where did this animosity come from with him?

  • V Dubb

    The chick in the black dress is from my Saints and Sinners show. Don't know her name though

  • Libra80sBaby

    IDK...but it's disgusting

  • Ms. Cree

    LOL

  • Quitedeliteful

    Tyrese looks like he's the groom in a wedding...

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • V Dubb

    Yea I don't even try defending him anymore. I thought it was a bad breakup that set him off or something but he goes out of his way to get philosophical and degrading. No one is really here for it.

  • V Dubb

    Yea my thought too. Couldve had one more had they not wasted our time with Tokyo Drift.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    She does!

  • MissyJ

    Yeah no clue where youve been the the franchise is already set up for 10 installments, every two years. They dont plan to to retire it for 4 years minimum.

  • Oh Tommie

    Ludacris is just not attractive

  • Ms.Caramel

    And the body language of his wife let's you know she thinks the same thing.

  • stav

    He looks like a primate!

  • Ms.Caramel

    From that fact...

  • V Dubb

    Got you!! Yea its too much

  • V Dubb

    Oh nooooo I thought dem was 4EVER!!!!!!! I mean you left your medical degree for him he gotta be fiah right?

  • V Dubb

    What????? But damn where are they going after this? They've already been all of the world? And someone else must die then.

  • Wile E. Coli

    I love movies that have NO actors in them.

  • Wile E. Coli

    really?

  • Wile E. Coli

    It's called "AD" for a reason.

  • V Dubb

    Yea I've seen it. He must then allow this woman to love him and show him different. He was hanging with REV run and I was like...they must not be talking about this stuff cause nothing rubbed off on him. Not going to get our support by beating us down and insulting us. Don't work like that.

  • V Dubb

    Bwahahahahaha get gone now!!!

  • Wile E. Coli

    you mean like.. in 60 seconds?

  • Dahl

    What's up with Gabrielle Union's hair?

  • MsPam

    Thanks fellow Libra!

  • Ms.Caramel

    ..?

  • bemetoo

    Kids are off limits still??? Because??? never mind

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Hehehe

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Exactly cause that house.....

  • Ms.Caramel

    They already did that. Just like Friday the 13th... Jason takes Manhattan was too much.

  • CCW47

    I genuinely think that she is attracted to him and is in-love with him. I do not think she is big on the red carpet, she has been with him for a long time and this is not the first red carpet appearance for him while they have been a couple.

  • Yetunde

    The young man captioned as Tyler Williams is actually Caleb McLaughlin.

  • CCW47

    Gurl he is beyond annoying. He is so narcissistic. He had to do an interview at the production company and I was called to get him from the reception area. The entire time, he was beyond rude, not humble at all.

  • Ms.Caramel

    I miss the good ole days... 80s and 90s when real movies were made.

  • V Dubb

    Yes. I can't with you today. I'm trying to figure out what movies you've watched without people!

  • Yetunde

    He's been annoying for a long time, not just these days.

  • Wile E. Coli

    That might be because I said "without actors" not without 'people'. Could you see Vin Diesel doing Shakespeare?

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Gabby U looks "off" as always. Keshia needs a stylist ASAP. I don't care for Tyrese or Ludacris (they both seem a bit lame to me). The young lady in the yellow looks refreshing.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Hilarious! But I completely agree

  • Taylordanes

    My exact thought

  • Taylordanes

    Her outfit is a no for me

  • KarmaBackAround

    Chocolate ty...where the hell that come from ??

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Ikr ?? A few of them were good, but that was like 5 movies ago. I wish they wouldn't mess up a good (I use that term loosely LOL) thing! ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I loathe that everything is popcorn made now. Meaning, rushed through and distributed to hopefully make some $$.

    They're focusing on quantity vs quality clearly!

  • tintin

    Well Tyrese and Luda need the cheque right so they helping them out. Luda was blaming not having the ability to pay the child support before getting his side baby was because Paul died and the previous f&f had to be put on hold. Using the poor dead man as an excuse.

    As I always say f**k Luda and Tyrese can go suck a egg with his non back wife

  • tintin

    I honestly haven't watched the last 3. I haven't even seen the last one with Paul Walker

  • V Dubb

    What?!?!?! She's trying the simple look. But some can never get the outfits together for premieres....and I don't know why.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She is wearing it natural ....

  • TheRider

    Neither is Vin Diesel, he looks like Dino on the Flintstones to me.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Irks my eyes

    Tyrese is still breathing air I see, unfortunately.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That was the absolute worst! LOL

  • pure_rachet

    He made it up because he thinks he's every women's chocolate fantasy.

  • pure_rachet

    y'all see his solo sex tape? I did.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Ew! He is such a turn off!

  • V Dubb

    I wasn't foND of him taking that child from her mama but he'll what do I know. He has been pretty quiet in the news as of late.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Not at all smh but arrogant as hell

  • Keesh5000

    Crazy thing is y'all....I've never watched any of the Fast and Furious????. One day, when I turn 70 or 80, I'm gonna sit down and watch all of them

  • Keesh5000

    I actually Like Gabbys hair. She is a very string dumb young lady when it come to her hubby.... My friend wanted me to say this

  • Keesh5000

    Ludichris wife is not as pretty as she use to be.
    Keyshia P.just look crazy fr9m here on out!!!
    Is Tyga still bi-sexual?
    Lady in the little black dress is beautiful

  • T Kenny

    ludacris is a crap actor but i suppose im the only one who thinks this because somehow he keeps popping up in movies.

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

    I was thinking the same thing about Luda wife. She look so tired now. She was drop dead gorgeous to me. I wonder what happened?

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Ludacris looks like Stinky Peterson from Hey Arnold.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Lol

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I only see the 2nd one bc I was a tyrese fan at the time. Not any more tho. He turned me off on Instagram

  • shay2shaymd

    She saw all of the tweets about Michelle Obama's hair and figured she would get in on the attention.

  • Ant Hill

    #Salute Tyrese

  • Blaque Mahogany

    You're not alone. But he only has like 7-10 lines (if that) per F&F movie, so I can deal.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Love Love Love Gabby.
    Like the look. Fresh faced.
    Hate the eyebrows. She must have done them herself.
    Mind look like that.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Soooooo French Montana called some black girl (on Twitter), amongst other things, a nappy headed heaux. He's not black. Period. We have got to stop letting these appropriating culture vultures disrespect black women. Idc. Idc. Idc. It's not cool. But who's going to check him? Definitely none of the black male artists (e.g. T.I., Lil Wayne) because they are just as disrespectful.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Eudoxie blink twice if u in danger girl...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    And he like 5 ft 5 smh...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    He has that "duh" look with him... you know the type of man who always running into doors and cant do math worth a damn....

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    ...

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    I agree with you baby girl. Alot of New Yorkers co-sign the N word and other disrespectful terms by who ever is "good in the hood" He also left behind and abandoned a black wife ( brown skin sista and a black child, a son) , as soon as felt he made it.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    ??

  • Libra80sBaby

    lmaooooooo

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Bravo, I agree, he also doesnt have the fan base to carry a movie or bring numbers to the theatre.

    Popular Rappers are given parts because their fans will flock to see them, Luda destroyed his female fans base and hasnt had any hit music for quite some time.His agent must have made an amazing deal with the Fast and Furious Franchise in the very begining before the first one.It will be interesting to see who gives him roles after the movie series is done.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Sadly most black men do this. Once they "make" it, the black woman is deemed not good enough. But nigga, we were the ones putting shrimp in Top Ramen to make a meal when you were broke AF

  • Libra80sBaby

    lmao...bye fool

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    She has the medicated face like depression meds are a steady diet. Luda is alot to handle, side baby to boot,serial cheater is very mild, and there are a ton of down lo and trans rumors. As a African woman with a traditional family, and considering she left her dreams of being a doctor on the floor....I feel bad for her.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Where is Eucerin from?

  • Libra80sBaby

    I dont feel bad for her. You are never supposed to lose sight of self for anyone. Not even a rich husband. SHE decided to stay after the break baby. This was a decison. If she REALLY wanted to be a doctor, she could have...No matter if her husband is a rich star, SHE chose this life.

  • Ms Thang

    I think he looks like Elmer Fudd.

  • Ms Thang

    She always looks so tight around the mouf. It's like her jaw is broken and she's trying to squeeze out a smile.

  • Ms Thang

    What happened to her house

  • Guess Who

    Luda's wife looks very old to me.

    I don't see what the hoopla is over Sheree Whitfield's son. He's just OK looking, nothing special.

    UGH..every time I see Tigga, I think of him allegedly getting caught being screwed bloody raw by a man.

    What does Monyetta Shaw do for a living outside of going to events with the same folks in attendance or being on reality tv?

  • Tynamight

    Everyone looks great. It's okay to smile Luda.
