Tyrese Gibson has branded Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson "selfish".

The 38-year-old singer-actor insisted he doesn't have a problem with his Fast and the Furious co-star, but is upset that the ninth instalment of the popular franchise was recently delayed until 2020 because a spin-off movie starring the former wrestler and Jason Statham is slated for a 2019 release, and thinks the decision to push it back is "f***ed up".

Speaking to TMZ, he said: "I don't know what they are doing. Everybody is coming at me like I am hating on Dwayne for the spin-off, but I'm not. The truth is, I just wish he was releasing it at a different time."

Gibson said it wasn't a conflict and that Fast and the Furious is like a holiday.

"The Fast and the Furious family, the trucks, the people who have been with us for 16 years, you know, pushing our release date back. It's only happened one time in The Fast and the Furious franchise when we lost our brother, Paul Walker," he said. "So you know, I just got a problem with the way it appears Dwayne is selfish, it appears he is so focused of furthering his own self-interest.

Tyrese previously hit out at his co-star on Instagram.
