Yep, Tyrese is still mad at The Rock for delaying 'Fast & Furious 9'

Friday, 13 October 2017, 08:19:07 PM. The 'Fast & Furious' cast member says the franchise has only pushed a film's release date once: After the death of original star Paul Walker in 2013.

Tyrese says he's not mad at Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson because his character's spinoff film is delaying the release of the ninth Fast & Furious movie until April 10, 2020. Except he still seems to be holding a grudge.

When the move was announced Oct. 5, Tyrese, who's been with the franchise since the second film, wrote an angry Instagram post accusing Johnson of making the franchise about himself.

TMZ caught him chilling in his limo Tuesday in Los Angeles and took the liberty of asking him about the spinoff.

"Congrats to him," Tyrese grumbled, before saying, “Everyone is coming at me like I’m hating on Dwayne about his spinoff. I’m not.”

Gibson added: “The truth is, I just wish he was releasing it at a different time.”

A release date has only been pushed one time in the 16-year history of the franchise, he noted: "When we lost our brother Paul Walker. So what's the reason we're pushing the release date back now?"

Production on the seventh film began in September 2013 but was put on hold when Walker died in a car accident that November. It resumed shooting in late March 2014 and was released in 2015.

Tyrese suggested Johnson is making decisions that affect the entire cast to accommodate his schedule for the spinoff, which was announced the same day the release date for Fast & Furious 9 was bumped.

"It's (messed) up," he told TMZ.

Tyrese was still stewing Wednesday when he dug up an old, NSFW video of Johnson comparing his 2015 album Black Rose to "dog (expletive)."

Tyrese fired back in the caption, running down the album's sales stats.

"Haters come in many forms ... In my Kanye voice,  #BlackRose is one of the greatest R&B Soul Albums of all time my single Shame was #1 on Billboard for 16 weeks my album came in #1 on the TOP 200!!! Real R&B music lovers know ... This album is in a league of its own."
