It has been reported that rapper Jay-Z and actor Robert De Niro are at war with each other, following an argument they had at a recent birthday dinner for Leonardo DiCaprio. De Niro was supposedly annoyed with Jay-Z for not getting back in touch with him after he tried to contact the rapper.
It is believed that Jay-Z had agreed on doing a song for the Tribeca Film Festival but when Robert De Niro tried to get in touch with him about it, Jay-Z failed to return any of his calls. This led to De Niro calling the rapper rude and admitting that he expected more from him.
An insider told New York Post, “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. 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.”
The birthday bash for Leonardo DiCaprio took place at The Darby and fellow guests included Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Jonah Hill, Jamie Foxx, Mark Ruffalo, Edward Norton and Emma Watson. The event was also used as a fund-raiser and managed to fetch $3m for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
