“I have yet to talk to The Rock to this day, and we will have a conversation,” he told Lathan. “[…] I found myself being the messenger on behalf of various people associated to the franchise, but stupid me was the only one who went public about those feelings, which is my own fault. You know, it's not professional, it's not cool.”
Tyrese started the seemingly one-sided beef in late 2017, when he suggested Johnson was to blame for Fast and Furious 9’s delay:
Tyrese went on to say he intends to speak to Johnson at some point, and also admitted the action star never fired any noticeable shots.
“I don't really recall anything that [Johnson] either said directly or subliminally being as big a deal as the way I was going at him, which was not cool. There's a way of going about communicating and dealing with issues. There's issues on all movie sets and TV shows,” he said, before suggesting medication played a role in his decisions. “I do regret those psych meds and letting that stuff influence me. It's like being drunk, you gotta say exactly how you feel and you're not in your right state of mind.”

Johnson—who is set to star in the Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs and Shaw—addressed Tyrese’s previous comments during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last week. The 46-year-old actor insisted there was no bad blood on his part.
“That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I’d been friends with Tyrese for a very long time,” he said. “I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it. It was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media and apparently, he was going through some stuff too in his personal life, but no, we haven’t talked and I don’t see where we would.”
