vin diesel has finally spoken up to clarify some misunderstandings on the highly anticipated "Fast & Furious 9" after it was announced that the release date has been pushed back. According to an IGN report, the ninth installment will be released on April 10, 2020, from its original schedule of April 19, 2019. No further details were given to explain the delay.

But it appears like Tyrese Gibson was not pleased with the changes on the release date after he accused his co-star, Dwayne Johnson, of causing the delay. It was recently revealed that the wrestler-turned-actor is set to star in a "Fast & Furious" spin-off that will focus on his character as Luke Hobbs.

Tension builds among 'Fast & Furious' cast

Dwayne Johnson announced that his upcoming solo movie had been confirmed for a 2019 release. Tyrese Gibson, on the other hand, revealed he tried to reach out to his co-actor to ask if he could delay his solo film since the release date for "Fast & Furious 9" has already been announced even before he signed for the spin-off.

The former MTV star added he did not want to disappoint their loyal fans who have been waiting for the new installment of the franchise. He clarified that all was well between him and his co-actor until it was confirmed that "Fast & Furious" fans will have to wait until 2020 to watch the new movie.

Tyrese Gibson also uploaded a photo of his Fast Family and claimed that the actors get along well until Dwayne Johnson joined the scene.

"Congratulations to [Hiram Garcia] and [Dwayne Johnson]! You guys are just amazing you broke up the Fast Family," he wrote.

He went on and said that he tried to warn his co-actors about the issue although some people thought he hated on the wrestler-turned-actor. "I was simply fighting to keep the family together. What makes us great is when you see us all together we don't fly solo," he added.

Diesel responds to Gibson's attack against Johnson

The former model continued to criticize Dwayne Johnson for accepting the project which he believed has caused the delay of "Fast & Furious 9" release date. Following his online tirade, Vin Diesel also took to Instagram to set the record straight on the issue.

Although he did not provide the reason behind the delay, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star thought it would be unfair to blame anyone. "Like any vehicle that has run around the globe eight times, the franchise is in need of maintenance," he captioned his photo with Dwayne Johnson.

He also teased the "Fast & Furious" fans to stay tuned for some good news about the franchise.
