PAUL Walker‘s friends have been hating on Vin Diesel.
As previously reported, the actor — who died on November 30 — didn’t get along with his Fast and Furious costar, who’s apparently claiming he and Paul were like brothers.
Since Walker’s death in a fiery car crash on Nov. 30, Vin claims the two were like brothers. But, sources say, nothing could be further from the truth.
“Paul was close to several people on the set, but they were cameramen, stuntmen and other production people Paul genuinely liked,” said a pal.
“He tried to keep his feuding with Vin out of the public eye for the good of the franchise, but when the cameras were off, Paul avoided him like the plague.”
“Vin is determined to make amends and he’s doing everything he can to help Paul’s family and to honor his legacy.
“But Vin’s hypocrisy is making Paul’s true friends gag, because they know how nasty he was to Paul when Paul was alive.”
The Fast & Furious series has been a box-office bonanza, with the first six films making more than $1 billion in the U.S. and about $2.4 billion worldwide.
The last installment, Fast & Furious 6, was the biggest grossing movie of them all, pulling in more than $788 million worldwide. Industry insiders expected Fast & Furious 7, which was being filmed when Walker died, to top that by a wide margin.
Some feel the unfinished movie should be scrapped, but producers are scrambling to salvage it.
“Fast & Furious 7 should be shelved as a memorial to Paul,” a source close to the film said.
“But with mega-millions at stake, producers aren’t about to kiss that big money goodbye.”[imagebrowser id=1334]
