Tyrese Gibson has threatened to quit the Fast and the Furious franchise amid his ongoing feud with co-star Dwayne Johnson.
Gibson posted on Instagram Wednesday, telling “loyal fans and loved ones from OUR Fast universe” that he won’t appear in “Fast 9” if Johnson is involved.
“I’m sorry to announce that if [Dwayne] is in Fast 9, there will no more Roman [Pearce]. You mess with family and my daughter’s survival I mess with yours,” Gibson captioned a selfie of him, Johnson, and Vin Diesel. Gibson is currently in a legal battle with his ex-wife over custody of their daughter.
This latest rant comes after Gibson criticized Johnson on Instagram in October when Universal Pictures announced the ninth Fast instalment was being pushed back a year to accommodate a spinoff around Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters.
Gibson joined the Fast franchise with 2 Fast 2 Furious in 2003, with Johnson coming on board in 2011’s Fast Five.
“Congratulations to [The Rock] and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner [Hiram Garcia] for making the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise about YOU,” Gibson wrote.
