LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Vin Diesel continues to tease fans that he will reveal "everything" regarding his alleged Fast 8 feud with Dwayne Johnson.

"I will tell you everything," the actor promised for the second time with a deep voice during a Facebook live video that streamed Thursday which featured Diesel discussing his next film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

According to Diesel, who was about to view the first cut of the action sequel, the truth about what happened between himself and Johnson will come to light after he watches xXx.

"Once I see the movie, I'll come back and tell you everything," he said hinting that a reveal could be imminent.

The drama all started Monday when Johnson took to Instagram to slam an unnamed Fast 8 male co-star whom he deemed unprofessional. "My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't," the former WWE Superstar wrote at the time.

On Tuesday, reports surfaced that Diesel was who Johnson was referring to. The pair also reportedly met on the film's set to hash out their differences. Seemingly aware of the reports, Diesel responded on Instagram stating that it due time, he will explain exactly what happened.

Fast and Furious star Tyrese Gibson has stayed in the conversation as well, originally stating on a now deleted post how he was not the star Johnson was referring to earlier. On Thursday, Gibson paid tribute to Diesel.

"If ONLY people knew how hard you work to protect this franchise and characters, minds would be blown," Gibson wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself standing next to Diesel. "And if no one else will jump out there and stand up I will - You're my brother for life let's keep it positive and keep rockin this thing...... My proudest post," he continued.
