The ongoing beef that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has with fellow Fast 8 co-star Vin Diesel has now reached to almost a boiling point, according to reports.
TMZ reported recently that the tensions got so high during Fast 8 shooting that it was "almost impossible" to shoot, and the two action stars had a meeting. Apparently things didn't go well, as TMZ said that they did not resolve their issues. One source told TMZ that "it's all about big egos."
Diesel finished filming before August 11 and left the set immediately after. In a speech, Diesel told the crew that he was leaving and said "Daddy's gone," apparently because he thinks of himself as a father figure on the set.
The Rock also posted this video as well, speaking well about the crew as Vin Diesel was not in the video. On the post, it alluded to the "conflict" between Vin Diesel and The Rock
The incident first got out to the public after The Rock posted this Instagram post recently:
"My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken s--t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. 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."
Fast 8 is set to release in theaters on April 14, 2017.
