CELEBRITY Rivalries

Feuds are surprisingly common in the world of celebrities. From actors who can't stand working together, to rappers who take constant potshots at each other in their songs, there's no doubt that these stars can hold a serious grudge. With that many big egos in a relatively small community, it's bound to happen.

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson have been at war since things turned nasty on the set of the 2017 movie, 'The Fate of the Furious.' Diesel even slammed the actor in a since-deleted Instagram post. He said that fans would be able to tell he wasn't acting in scenes where his blood was boiling in the movie. The two haven't worked together since and have made various comments about each other in interviews that show they're not on good terms.

However, Diesel has publicly addressed Johnson in an open letter, asking him to return for the series' tenth and final instalment.  He appealed to their old friendship, calling him his "little brother" and reminding him that his children think of him as an uncle. Diesel claimed that he made a promise to his deceased friend and co-star Paul Walker to give the franchise a perfect conclusion, and said that he needed Johnson to return in order to keep that promise: "Do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can't be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfil your destiny."

A month later, Johnson gave his response in a frank interview with CNN. He called Diesel's public request an "example of his manipulation," and stated that he had already informed Diesel that he would not return to the franchise in a private face-to-face conversation. As such, he was surprised to see the open letter, and wasn't pleased about the references to his children and the loss of a mutual friend.  "I didn't like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker's death. Leave them out of it." Johnson reiterated that he will not return for 10th and final film in the 'Fast & Furious' series.
