Tyrese Gibson: Wait, I Love Vin Diesel, Too!

by at .

Tyrese Gibson is full of love, people.

He wants you to know that.

Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson

Earlier this week, Dwayne Johnson caused quite an uproar online when he shared a rant on Instagram that called out one of his Fast 8 co-stars.

He didn't name this individual, but he did say he it was a "male" and he railed against this actor's unprofessionalism, referring to him as a "candy ass."

In Dwayne Johnson parlance, this is as serious as it gets.

It didn't take long for sources to reveal that Johnson's beef was with Vin Diesel.

A producer on Fast 8 (which hits theaters in April), Diesel allegedly let the power go to his head, showing up late to set, insulting other stars and acting like a general jackass.

Conversely, according those in the know who spoke to TMZ, Johnson was a delight to work with.

He even filmed a video with members of the crew that drove this point home.

Here it is:

Soon after news of this feud broke, Tyrese Gibson jumped on Instagram to clear the air.

At least as far as he was concerned at least.

In a heartfelt post, Gibson referred to Johnson as his "brother."

He even shared a video of Johnson singing to his daughter, writing that "a man wouldn't be singing from his heart and soul to another mans little angel if he had a problem with her dad."

In other words: don't look at me! Me and The Rock are cool!

But perhaps afraid as if this would make it look like he was on Team Johnson and against Team Vin Diesel, Tyrese has returned to social media with a new message.

"Spreading love always," he wrote as a lengthy caption to a photo of himself and Diesel on the red carpet.

He continued:

Without saying I've had too many moments to counts, too many heart too hearts, we've celebrated in too many countries, too many exchanges, too many play dates with our angels......

"Our brotherhood and every moment has inspired me to be a better man and father.... So much strength to pull from......"

Tyrese just wants everyone to get along, guys.

This is how he concluded his Diesel shout-out:

"I'm so f--king proud to call you my family and my brother.... even now I'm learning so much about sitting still and being centered in the mist of all of this unexpected energy.......

"I've always said that if ONLY people knew how hard you work to protect this franchise and characters, minds would be blown...... The fans around the world who continue to show UP for us are just all around amazing......

"And if no one else will jump out there and stand up I will - You're my brother for life let's keep it positive and keep rockin this thing...... My proudest post......"

Co-star Ludacris, meanwhile, seemed to give his silent co-sign to Tyrese's post, following it with a throwback photo of the Fast cast (below) WITHOUT Johnson.

Guess someone has chosen to take a side in this rivalry, huh?

We'd say this feud could be nearing its end, but there are a couple things to note:

Cast members will need to do press in a few months to promote the film. That ought to be interesting.

And Diesel has said he'll soon tell everyone everything... so buckle up, readers!

Nothing is over just yet.
