"I'm sorry to announce that if Dewayne (sic) is in Fast9, there will no more Roman Peirce (sic)", Tyrese wrote. Tyrese allegedly pleaded with his costar not to make the film as it would, in his opinion, "hurt" the Fast franchise.
Johnson hasn't addressed the critical Instagram post or previous posts made by Gibson.
Without specifying the nature of his complaints, Gibson then went on to call Johnson a number of names with "clown" being the main printable term.
The Grammy-nominated performer called out Johnson in an Instagram post last month around the time The Hollywood Reporter said that a 2019 "Fast" film is meant to be a spinoff starring Johnson and Jason Statham.More news: Hardik Patel threatens Congress with protest at Rahul Gandhi's Surat rally
"All my real one [sic]", he continued.
Last week, Tyrese's ex-wife Norma Gibson took the stand and detailed an alleged history of abuse by the actor, claiming he punched her in the stomach when she was pregnant with their daughter. In a series of posts on Instagram Wednesday, Nov. 1, Gibson caused concern among fans for once again blasting his "Fast and Furious" co-star.
"Notice who's got his arms around my shoulder and who's standing alone - #OurChildrenMatter", Mr. Gibson wrote.
For several weeks and months, we've seen Tyrese unravel while embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-wife and expressing frustration over the direction of the Fast & Furious franchise. Slated for a 2019 release, Johnson's spin-off film will delay production of Fast & Furious 9 a full year and will be released in 2020, thus affecting Tyrese's job security. Tyrese has starred in five "Fast" films, while Johnson has starred in four.
