Reports say "The Rock" was sniping at Diesel
Earlier this week Dwayne 'The Rock" Johnson called out some of his male co-stars in the upcoming Fast 8 movie for being "candy-asses." While Johnson didn't say who exactly got him riled up, a report by TMZ claims that the star and Vin Diesel – an actor and a producer in the upcoming film – were quarreling.
According to TMZ, Johnson, who plays Luke Hobbs in the franchise, and Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto, were butting heads on the set. Unnamed sources claim the feud started because of decisions Diesel made that didn't sit well with Johnson. The two reportedly had a secret meeting on the set in Atlanta on Tuesday, as tension between the two made filming nearly impossible.
"The Rock" took to Instagram to acknowledge that conflict is occurring on the set, but didn't state who the conflict was with or if it was settled. "And like with any team - that's a family - there's gonna be conflict," Johnson said in the post.
People magazine reports that tension between Johnson and Diesel has been brewing for some time, with sources reporting that the former wrestler could be to blame. Unnamed sources claim that Johnson shows up late for production, and sometimes doesn't show up at all. Other sources claim that Diesel is a diva on set and continuously holds up production.
It looks like the two stars will bury the hatchet to get Fast 8 out on time, but the conflict between the two is obviously ongoing.
