Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson says his relationship with Tyrese Gibson has been damaged beyond repair, insisting he won't even speak with his former friend ever again.

The Fast and Furious co-stars haven't spoken since Gibson suffered a breakdown in 2017, when he posted several tearful videos online and threatened Johnson's family, among other outbursts.

Later, Gibson apologised for lying to his fans in the videos, blaming his actions on a medication called Rexulti and also his star sign (Capricorn).

Johnson refrained from publicly commenting on Gibson's insults and threats, but has now responded when he was asked about them directly by a fan on US TV show Watch What Happens Live!.

"We haven't talked at all. That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I'd been friends with Tyrese for a very long time," said Johnson.

"I always feel like a beef requires two people to actually jump in it. It was really one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media and apparently he was going through some stuff too in his personal life, but no, we haven't talked and I don't see where we would.

"To me, there's no need to have a conversation."

Johnson is set to star in Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw next year, before Gibson returns in Fast & Furious 9 in 2020.
