The two actors' public spat first went public in 2017 when Tyrese publicly criticized The Rock for signing on to do the "Hobbs & Shaw" movie, which was a spinoff of the "Fast & Furious" franchise. At the time, Tyrese called Dwayne "selfish" for agreeing to do the spinoff, while also accusing him of making decisions based on "his own self interests."

Around the same time, Tyrese also said The Rock wouldn't respond to his text messages despite the two being friends and having starred in four "Fast & Furious" films together.

The following year, Dwayne said the public disagreement was "pretty disappointing." 

"I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it, and it was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media," Dwayne said. "Apparently, he was going through some stuff too in his personal life. We haven't talked and I don't see where we would, and to me, there's no need to have a conversation."

Last year, Tyrese slammed The Rock after the "Hobbs & Shaw" opening

Now, though, things have apparently simmered. 

"We talked," Tyrese told Comedy Central's Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz this week. "We talked for at least four hours. It was great."

"What's interesting about 'The Fast and The Furious' is it's not about any of us individually," he continued, speaking specifically about the franchise's spinoffs. "We're like the UN at this point. Everyone gets to go to the theater and say, 'He and she looks like me.' If I did it with [Ludacris' Tej], then who are we going to play off of? I could not just make it about me. I just could not."
