Fast and the Furious star Tyrese Gibson has "reconnected" with Dwayne' The Rock' Johnson following their long-standing feud. The two actors had been at loggerheads since 2017 when it was first reported that Dwayne had plans to make a spinoff movie based on his character Luke Hobbs, which eventually pushed back the release of the recently released 'F9' movie.
Speaking to Tiffany Haddish on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', Tyrese stated,
"We've reconnected in a real way. I think we're both better men on the other side of all that stuff that went down.
"To be honest, [I] did not know when or how the phone call was going to happen, but it did happen. We're about 20 phone calls in, and we're in competition right now on who can leave the longest voice note."
Previously, Dwayne spoke about their feud back in 2018, when he said he hadn't talked to Tyrese since the actor blasted him on Twitter and blamed him for delaying 'F9'.
"The answer is no. No, we haven't talked at all.
"That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I'd been friends with Tyrese for a very long time.
"I always feel like a beef requires two people to jump in it. It was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media, and apparently, he was going through some stuff too in his personal life, but no, we haven't talked, and I don't see where we would.
"To me, there's no need to have a conversation."
