Vin Diesel found himself the subject of some rather bad publicity following an explosive Facebook rant posted by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson who labelled his male Fast 8 co-stars 'candy asses'.
But the action star's week went from bad to worse on Thursday when reports emerged that the Fast 8 crew are siding with his rival in the row.
Sources from the multi-million pound production told TMZ that Vin was often '30 minutes to an hour late to shoot scenes', adding that the star's tardiness was apparently down to him simply remaining in his trailer.
The spat - which according to TMZ has been brewing for some time - came to a head on Monday with Dwayne's controversial Facebook post.
He wrote: 'This is my final week of shooting Fast & Furious 8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one.
'An incredible hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story (sic).
'Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.'
The actor in his typically slow drawl then revealed that his one-year-old daughter Pauline had learned a new word.
'I'm gonna have to share it with you, it's more important than anything. Her new word kind of describes my spirit and my soul and most people who stay positive. The new word is ''happy'',' he said.
'When I heard her say happy I just lit up in ways I can't even describe. I said give me a second and I will tell you everything,' he whispered.
'Everything,' he added with emphasis.
Fast 8 is due out in cinemas in April 2017.
