The Rock really opened a can of worms when he slammed his ‘Fast 8’ male co-stars in a wild Facebook rant. The actor was reportedly calling out Vin Diesel, specifically, and HolllywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Michelle Rodriguez is totally torn over the whole thing. Which side will she choose?
“Michelle is in such a tough spot because she really likes Dwayne [The Rock] and has a lot of respect for him,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But Vin is her boy, he’s been there for her since day one.”
It all started when The Rock blasted unnamed Fast 8 co-stars as “unprofessional” and called them “chicken s***,” revealing that they literally made his blood boil on set. While it was originally suspected that he was referring to newcomer, Scott Eastwood, in the message, it was later reported that Vin Diesel is actually the guy The Rock is talking about, according to TMZ.
Even though the well-known actors reportedly met to squash their beef, TMZ claims that Vin still fled from the Fast & Furious set immediately after he was done filming on Aug. 9 because he was so angry with his co-star. Yikes!
Meanwhile, The Rock took to Instagram to defend himself after the controversy began, and explained to fans that he thinks “conflict can be a good thing.” That is, of course, “when it’s followed by great resolution.” He also referred to the FF8 cast as a “family,” and admitted that he thinks they’ll get better from the “conflict” has erupted.
It doesn’t seem like Vin is ready to let things go just yet, though — he uploaded a cryptic Instagram video of his own in which he promises to “tell everything.” What does that MEAN?! We’ll be waiting!
HollywoodLifers, whose side do you think Michelle will take in this feud? Do you think the guys will ever get over it?
