Vin Diesel’s Ego Is ‘Shattered’ Following Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Box Office Success w/ Film ‘Black Adam,’ Says Source
Actor Vin Diesel allegedly feels some type of way toward Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s most recent success.
According to RadarOnline, an insider shared Vin Diesel hasn’t been able to shake his jealousy toward his former “Fast & Furious” co-star, The Rock, 50.
Sources claim the 55-year-old entertainer has been feeling bitter after former wrestler-turned-actor The Rock smashed the box office with his latest thriller, “Black Adam.” The Rock’s latest accomplishments have allegedly shattered Vin Diesel’s precious ego. An insider shared,
“Vin tries so hard to be the man that other men want to be and women want to be with, but he’ll always be in The Rock’s shadow.”
The source continued,
“His ego is extremely fragile and he can’t shake the feeling that Dwayne’s the better man.”
Allegedly, Vin Diesel, real name Mark Sinclair, has been sucking up to A-listers in an attempt to outshine The Rock, who appeared in previous installments of the “Fast & Furious” franchise. A source added,
“The sad thing is this feud isn’t about two guys, it’s mostly a one-sided thing and it’s all on Vin, who’s become obsessed with Dwayne.”
The two famed actors have seemingly been feuding since filming began for “The Fate of the Furious.”
As previously reported, back in 2016, The Rock called out his male “Fast & Furious” co-stars on social media for not being stand-up men and being too “chicken sh-t” to confront him about issues. In the post, which has since been deleted, he said,
“Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh-t to do anything about it anyway.”
Sources close to Diesel claimed The Rock had problems with him making decisions on set as an executive producer.
Last year, tensions rose even higher between the two when The Rock said that Diesel tried to manipulate him into rejoining the cast. The Rock was referring to an Instagram post that Diesel made on November 7, 2021. He used an old screenshot of the two from the film they shared and captioned it,
“My little brother Dwayne… the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10. As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes… but the time has come. Legacy awaits.”
“I told you years ago that I was going to fulfill my promise to Pablo (Paul Walker). I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love… but you must show up, 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 fulfill your destiny.”
According to The Rock, he had spoken privately and directly with Diesel before the post about his desire to not return to the franchise. The Rock reportedly ended up returning for F9 in 2021 but the two have yet to resolve their beef.
