You’ve likely been hearing about this on-set feud between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel on the set of the new ”Fast & Furious” movie. We got wind that things weren’t all that rosy between the muscly twosome when Johnson took to Instagram to vent about a ‘candy ass’ he was working with on the set of the movie (tentatively titled ”Fast 8”) – and it took off from there. Soon enough outlets were flooded with info on the reported feud – with most, funnily enough, seemingly siding with Johnson.
But now a rumour has hit that the feud is no more than a publicity stunt for their movie (released next April). Reportedly, Johnson and Diesel came up with the idea to stage a public feud between the two of them, which would let up to the two of them going head-to-head in the wrestling ring … just two weeks shy of the ”Fast 8” release. Hmmm…
“They are playing a huge prank, and it’s all for publicity,” an insider for Life and Style mag reveals. “The Rock convinced Vin to amp up the drama between them so they could turn it into a WWE match to help promote the April 2017 release of Fast 8″.
Yup, we’d believe it. It’s a great PR stunt. At the same time, a lot of the things John claims Diesel is guilty of… well, others have accused of him too. So maybe this is real and they are Patsy and Aurora from “The Evening Star”!?
