Tyrese Gibson has been very vocal about his distaste for his co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who's signed up to do a spin-off, which will star Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw alongside his Hobbs character. That spin-off has delayed Fast & Furious 9, which Gibson has repeatedly labeled as "selfish." Now, it looks like Gibson may leave the Fast and Furious franchise entirely if The Rock stars in Fast and Furious 9.
In a recent social media post, Tyrese Gibson, who has been present in the Fast and Furious franchise since 2 Fast 2 Furious, says his character Roman Pierce will be "no more" if Dwayne Johnson is in Fast and Furious 9. That's a bold move to make, but it makes it very clear just how upset Gibson is over this spin-off, which is set for release in 2019.
