Nooooo!!! Two of my fave celebs ever are in a beef?!?! Noooooo! No. Okay. So, newly-single Leonardo DiCaprio had a big blowout birthday bashment the other day and every body was in the building. Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Emma Watson, the incomparable Robert De Niro, and everyone else everywhere. But a party ain’t a party unless someone gets in someone else’s face about how they never returned their calls regarding the Tribeca Film Festival... lol. Click inside to learn more!
The NY Post has the story:
Robert De Niro and Jay-Z got into a tense beef atLeonardo DiCaprio’s birthday bash the other night, when De Niro called the rapper disrespectful, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
Spies say “Godfather II” and “Taxi Driver” star De Niro gave Jay a dressing-down in a roomful of celebs including Martin Scorsese because the rap mogul had refused to return De Niro’s calls.
Sources add that Jay tried to joke his way out of the situation, and even his wife, Beyoncé, tried to intervene, but De Niro wouldn’t back down.
“Bob was sitting at a table, and when Jay-Z went over to say hello, De Niro told Jay that he never called him back,” a source says.
A spy then overheard De Niro complaining to the rapper, a fellow TriBeCa resident, about a song Jay-Z agreed to record for the Tribeca Film Festival. De Niro had reached out to discuss further details, but Jay never returned his calls.
“Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation,” the spy says. “He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude.”
When Jay-Z tried to make a joke of it, saying he is terrible on the phone, a source says, “De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful.’ ”
“Beyoncé came over, but that didn’t calm Bob down,” the source said, adding that afterward, “It was the talk of the party. Everyone was saying there’s only one star in New York bigger and badder than Jay-Z, and that’s Robert De Niro. He can be quite scary when he’s angry.”
But a source close to De Niro told us, “It was a low-key private conversation between two people that was apparently overheard. It was not a heated discussion.”
OMG. Jay?!?!?! Seriously?! I mean… y’all know I lurve me some Jigga man but who doesn’t return Bob De Niro’s phone calls?! That ish (completely and utterly) cray! Of all the things Jay-Z has done in the life & times of Shawn Carter, this disappoints me the most. Sort of. I’m kinda glad that– assuming the report is true– De Niro held his ground because that really is hella disrespectful.
But it is a rumored story, so I gotta ask if you guys believe it. Can you see a De Niro/Jay-Z beef going down at Leo’s spot???
