Tyrese is calling out his Fast & Furious franchise co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for breaking up the cast amid reports of a spinoff film starring Johnson, the AP reports. Tyrese posted a picture of the cast Thursday on Instagram and wrote in the caption he thinks Johnson "had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster." Calling Johnson "a clown," Tyrese says Johnson didn't have to accept the solo role. He also said Johnson and franchise producer Hiram Garcia "broke up the #FastFamily."

The Hollywood Reporter said Thursday that a 2019 Fast film is intended to be a spinoff starring Johnson and Jason Statham. Tyrese has starred in five Fast films, while Johnson has starred in four. Johnson's representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
