Robert De Niro made it clear last year that he wasn’t a big fan of Jay-Z. Well, it looks like the feeling is mutual.
The hip hop mogul opened up about his relationship with the movie star today during an interview with radio station Power 105.1.
Jay-Z said: “I treat people based on who they are… who they REALLY are. Not their name, like Robert De Niro. Who they are as a person. It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone has to be respectful… we’re all human beings and we’re supposed to be respectful to one another.”
Jay-Z and De Niro reportedly had a falling out last November at Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday party. De Niro reportedly confronted the singer, telling him that he was disrespectful for not returning his calls. De Niro was trying to use a Jay-Z song for a project at the Tribeca Film Festival and had been trying to get a hold of Jay-Z. De Niro reportedly left messages for the singer but Hova never called him back.
When asked if he had talked to De Niro since the incident, Jay-Z responded: “No, I haven’t.”
Jay-Z doesn’t like Robert De Niro because he doesn’t think that the actor is respectful. Robert De Niro doesn’t like Jay-Z because he does’t think that the singer is respectful. Hey, it looks like these two already have something in common.
