It seems all is not well in the Fast and Furious family following the recent announcement that the movie release date has been delayed by a year.

The ninth installment of the popular franchise was initially due to be released in April 2019 but executives at Universal announced it will now be released on April 10, 2020.

Reasons for the delays are unknown but it seems actor and singer Tyrese Gibson may have an idea.

Gibson took to Instagram on Thursday, accusing his co-star, Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock for holding up the next installment of the franchise.

Fast and Furious 9 delayed to 2020

Gibson who is known for his role as Roman Pearce in the movie franchise, later posted another lengthy statement with an old image of the Fast and Furious cast.

“Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family...... Until Dewayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster........... I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys... 

"You thought I was hating...... I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don't fly solo..... #MyLastPost today.....
