Tyrese Gibson defended his emotional social media rants after he took to Instagram.com to beg 'Fast & Furious' co-star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson not to go forward with a Fast & Furious spin-off.

The drama unfolded when Tyrese, 38, spotted a photo Dwayne posted of himself sitting at a table in his trailer after finalizing a business deal to film a Luke Hobbs spin-off.

Dwayne, who portrays Hobbs in the movie franchise, captioned the image:

"Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD (Get S**t Done) table that's inside my trailer. This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes."

An emotional Tyrese then responded in the comments section:

"If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter - I don't wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about - I'm on your timeline cause you're not responding to my text messages - #FastFamily is just that a family... We don't fly solo."

In follow-up posts on Instagram.com, Tyrese complained that Dwayne was ignoring his text messages.

Later, Tyrese wrote a long, exhaustive post defending his emotional behavior, saying he has mouths to feed and patting himself on the back for taking private school children to one of Dwayne's movies.

"I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star he's my brother.... I repeat ever....... bro just being honest I didn't like Bay Watch lol - but I did rent out 2 full theaters and take a bunch of kids with my daughter from her #PrivateSchool to support Moana!!!! ( I was surprised you could sing so well ).... oh s**t!!"

"I'm simply trying to reach him cause he won't call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced and we can't let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal fast and furious FANS down on any level from pushing the date."

Tyrese hit a nerve when he added he only made his plea public "on behalf of our families so we keep them all in private school."

He told Johnson: "I never ever go public with private family issues. Once you hit me back I will delete every post."

When his followers slaughtered him in the comments section, Tyrese switched tactics by playing the sympathy card. He reminded his followers that he just got out of the hospital where he underwent a mysterious 3-hour surgery.

"Just got out of the hospital still recovering thank you guys for your prayers and love.... I'm a real champion and champions are never down for long.... This is not a #Rant I'm no Rock #Hater and I don't want his #Life I love my own...... I'm doing this for the #FastFamily I'm loyal and I apologize for being loyal but dammit I am."

He later deleted the rant and replaced it with a simple plea to Johnson, writing: "I don't do email bruh. You got my cell same San Diego # hit me."

  • Pnthr

    1. What does his daughter going private school have to do with anything? Why the hashtag?

    Tyrese, Boo, they didn't want you for the spin off. Your flame has died. Let it go. You are playing yourself, Dwayne don't know you like that.

  • Dahl

    Cryrese ???

  • LeeSeeCee

    Tyrese is so dang emo.. Dude, who do YOU think you are to tell another professional what he can or can not do when YOU have NO stake in any of the franchise other than that check for acting?? Or are you just mad that your character wasn't popular enough for it's own stand alone flick?

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Tyrese wrote a long, exhaustive post
    Per usual

    He is too damn emotional to be a biological male.

  • tunjie

    Serious femalian rant by baby boy.

  • Dahl

    He needs to be banned from all social media. He's worse than a PMS'ing teenager that just had her braces tightened and broke up with her boyfriend...

  • LeeSeeCee
  • Trey

    he sound like a thot

  • You Could Never

  • You Could Never

  • brownisback

    He's menopausing. Apparently they're still experimenting with his hormone meds from his recent hysterectomy

  • You Could Never

    He told Johnson: “I never ever go public with private family issues.

    This is a LIE and Tank proved it was almost two YEARS ago. #ICANNA

    His exact words. FAMILY.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    This would make me think twice about even being friends with Ty. If he couldn't reach me he might do the same thing to me. Watch out Celebs!

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lol??? drunk ass Ginuwine.

  • Moon Lee

    Is this the way men handle shit nowadays??? On social media, so Bitch like....

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    i swear Tyrese is SO HORMONAL ...he can really work my nerves sometimes! :-(

  • Vegas1989

    Make sure when you click on a story and start reading the comments section do the following. Put all drinks to the side. And make sure you don't have any food or drink in mouth upon reading a funny comment. I had to replace my keyboard twice already this year.....LOL..I don't want my IT peeps think that I'm touched...LOL

  • klwbaby

    He sound like a female who got rode hard and was sent home with a wet azz but never got that second date.

  • Vegas1989

    He don't like airing nothing in public!. But isn't FaceBook and the gram open to the public?...SMH....He has and keep telling his business to the public. He is a big cry baby

  • Phillybruh

    On a serious note, the rock in a stand alone film could ruin this franchise, when they decided to replace A team that worked Marlon and Channing in GI Joe with the Rock it ruined what could have been a decent franchise.

  • We Can Do This

    Tell that to the people riding the bus with you while you were singing holding a Coke bottle...

  • You Could Never

    Elgin be tore UP

  • Pamela

    He's so unlikable.

  • Cali

    BWAHHHHHHH, I stole Tyreka from somewhere, felt that summed him up perfectly, but Cyrese is funny as hell too lololololololol

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Don't he? I'm thinking it might be a lil more than just hitting the bottle.
    Your crazy ass done called him by his government name...i can't with you?

  • Cali


  • Renee26

    Can't tell another man how to make his coins GTFOH

  • Renee26

    It's past time for the F& F franchise to die IJS

  • Phillybruh

    Well they make that rock spin off and it will...lol

  • stav

    Long overdue!

  • Reina1718

    Look this franchise need to go!

  • Reina1718

    Thank u!

  • Dowoop

    More and more.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    So basically he is afraid that the fans will split their viewing dollars between seeing the Rock movie and Fast and Furious huh.. mkay..

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Tyrese wasn't invited to the party and now he wants Dwayne to stay home, too. I hope Dwayne realizes Tyrese is not his friend. Jealousy and manipulation can't live in the same space with love.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    So when it's convenient for Tyrese to make more more than Ginuwine and Tank, it's all good. But for the Rock to get a spin-off from Fast and Furious it's about loyalty and keeping his already rich kids in private school. Tyrese simply feels entitled to be at the top of everyone's list and when he isn't, he starts with scriptures, lectures, and let's keep it in the fake family. The producers asked Rock to do a spin off because they think he will be a hit.
    If Ty was really a friend he would want Rock to succeed and be happy for him, but he's not, because it's not about Tyrese. Does he ever take his own advice?

  • i troll it like i see it

    What a disgusting selfish piece of crap Tyrese turned out to be! And to begging someone, ANYONE publically to please, please, please, contact you is pathetic! What kind of man is he?! Dewayne Johnson has the right to make any movie he wants! Now THIS is hating on someone else's success! If they offered him a spin off he would accept in a heartbeat! And I'm sure he is in no danger of losing his kids slot at a private school! He needs to stop being so trifling!

  • my view


  • Tish


  • i troll it like i see it

    I have trouble even listening to his music, and "How you gonna act like that" was one of my favorites! Now this man's voice makes me want to turn stations.

  • my view

    right...enough already..we get it cars go fast

  • Jen_no_juice

    Tyrese ain't this the same plea Tank and Ginuwine (and TGT fans) made to you which you ignored saying you had to make money for YOUR family????? But when it's done to you its a problem

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Tyrese mad because he won't have a role in that film...

  • Look@m3

    Did anyone see the open post Tyrese penned to the mother of his child. Lawd I'm so done with him....I have officially placed him in that bucket with Gabe, Wade, Usher and Luda! Ugh...

  • jussaying

    The Rock is the one who saved this franchise to begin with. It didn't get huge again till Fast Five.

  • Vonn

    The Rock knows tyrese is self serving & not a friend...that's why he's ignoring him. Lol

  • Vonn

    They'll be doing this franchise until the only thing fast & furious about them is their bowel movements. They really do need to stop.

  • darealwifey

    Didn't see it...what had happened? lol

  • Look@m3

    Hunty he pretty told Norma that I'm sorry you never found any one. Im sorry I got married...m sorry we didn't work out and Im sorry you never found another man.... This should give you a Jist....

  • Liah

    He talk too much!!!

  • Jen_no_juice

    He told Johnson: “I never ever go public with private family issues.
    But one of your last IG post was about the mother of your child and y'all business. Guess it's only ok when HE goes public

  • darealwifey

    Tyrese is def in self-preservation mode "we don't fly solo." Right...No doubt he would've been singing God's praises had he been given a high-paying, solo offer. It's like he's solely banking on F&F franchise for the rest of his career. Rock has TOO many credits under his name. He will eat with or without F&F.

  • Renee26


  • Naomi

    Exactly. The first one was good. All the hype around it blah blah blah. The second one didn't even have Vin Diesel in it so that flopped. Tokyo Drift was good, but people never remember that it's a part of the franchise. The fourth one...I fall asleep to it every time LOL so when the fifth one came out and they added the Rock into it, it was a HUGE deal and since then they've been raking in the cash. I completely agree that he saved the franchise.

  • wonderwoman

    Tyrese!Tyrese!Tyrese! What are we going to do with you. The Rock is the #1 male movie star out today. He doesn't need the FF, the FF needs him, that is why they offered him a spinoff. You big dummy!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I bet he is the biggest bitch in a relationship. I see mommy and daddy issues every time I hear about him speaking on anything. He is ALWAYS crying about something. Social media is his nipple and he always sucking on it like a damn baby. I CAN'T STAND HIM. He is worse than that dreaded up dude SR subjects us to with his annoying letters.... glad I can't think of his name right now.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He wasn't in the last Transformers movie I see.

  • jussaying

    Also... numbers wise, The Rock did not ruin GI Joe. When he was added to the franchise, the box office gross income including domestic and worldwide made more than the first film (about 75 mili more to be exact). This has actually been the trend anytime he is added to a franchise. The GI Joe movies were horrible though before and after they added Dwayne. This is why they keep adding him to franchises... Same thing happened for that Escape to Witch Mountain or whatever Disney movie where he replaced Brendan Fraiser.

  • Guest©

    The woman was probably so traumatized by Tyrese that she's not even interested in a relationship. Tyrese needs mental health services asap!

  • Guest©

    Thanks for this info. Seems Tyrese is eating his words as it seems he wants the Rocks life, smh. Poor, poor Cryrese, lol.

  • EntrepreneurialSpirit

    Listen to me Black Ty is not here to play with y'all. He trying to win the chip and Finals MVP in the B.A.N. league, and y'all will deal. Although T.I., Kevin Hart, Tre Songz, Future, Slim, 50 and a few others around the league have proven to be worthy contenders, Mr. Gibson is going for the 3-peat. His level of petty has resulted in whispers of possible hall of fame induction. His declaration of his wife's blackness and this recent unnecessary, hating ass rant is just some light work to get a feel for the competition. Stay tuned because if know I Coke And A Smile like I think I know him he's saving his best stuff for the Finals also known as Black History Month. When all the fake woke B.A.N.s come to play. It's the Rucker if you will. He's embarking on a dynasty ladies and gentlemen???. Stay tuned

  • yvette46

    Tyrese truly have emotional problems. .

  • pure_rachet

    Haven't had a Slim post in a while huh? Wonder if he and auntie fell out? Or maybe he's just too busy finalizing production on his feminine hygiene products? Idk ?

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Reina1718

    & tyrese the only one left lol

  • Blue

    Hahahaha. He don’t do email. He’d rather air everything out on social media for all to see?????

  • Blue

    Hahahahaha. Smh

  • Shaun M

    I can't! Lol

  • TeeTee

    dam you got a goof point

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yes, exactly! And, I believe The Rock is going to run for President with the GOP behind him! He is a huge movie star, he delivers, not a one-note actor!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    My sentiments, too...celebrities who I just can't...list!

  • abby500

    This bum is one of THE most annoying IDIOTS on the scene now.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I hope his new wife is seeing his true state, and their unraveling, he's ill to come at the Rock in this cheap social media fashion! Has no self-awareness at all!

  • MythCalledLove

    I know right. I would respect his concern and not question his motive if he would hv picked up the phone, text, like you said email. Taking it public was tacky

  • MythCalledLove

    See now a damn 4 part series followed by weekly affirmations about to happen.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Never trust a man who talks like a little b****.

  • yvette46

    His wife knows ..money talks louder than his craziness, he is truly annoying he really do act like Jody always whining. .you're right about everything you said..

  • Ajavee

    Love your entire post?. Sadly I do see mommy and daddy issues when he posts on social media.

  • Fire & Ice

    They need to follow his lead and do more outside of ff. The rock has all kinds of stuff going on.....movies Ballers on HBO,and the list goes onnnn. Honestly that franchise has ran it's course!

  • 4RGSpot

    He's so nauseating. I wish he, along with the Kardashians, Jenners, Black Chyna and Amber Rose would all just go away FORRRRRRRREVERRRRR!!!!

  • Shaylove1975

    If Dwayne isn't answering it means that he doesn't want to be bothered. He acts like he has a problem and is very controlling.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    After the first two, I just couldn't do it anymore.




    (Sips HOLY tea)


    After Paul died the F&F franchise should have ended anyway. They've done 4 too many already. The Rock is a moneymaker due to his awesome personality, attitude, humility and selflessness. Ty you need to sit your @$$ down and learn from Mr.Johnson before your career is dead.

  • Liah


  • Lady Elle

    After a certain number of sequels the movie shouldn't keep repeating itself. I give you one, two, hell maybe even three. But, after that...wrap it up...don't make no more.

    As of Ty and his whinning about Rock not calling or texting him back uhh, have you ever thought that maybe he doesn't want to talk to you? Rock doesn't owe Ty or anybody else an explanation on how he makes his cash.

    If Ty don't get like Michael Jackson and beat it with all this foolishness! Ugh!
