Tension is reported to have filled the air at Leonardo DiCaprio’s recent NYC birthday bash – after witnesses say Robert De Niro called Jay-Z out as being “rude” and “disrespectful”.
Sources say when De Niro spotted Jay-Z at the event, he was anything but quiet about his being less than impressed with the Roc-A-Fella Records founder. This after De Niro reported didn’t get any return phone calls back from Jigga, after attempting to contact the rapper several times – over a song he wanted him to record for his TriBeCa Film Festival. Don’t believe me.. Ask Martin Scorsese.
Here’s the drop:
“Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation. 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.
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.
Jay tried to joke his way out of the situation, and Beyoncé, tried to intervene, but De Niro wouldn’t back down. Jay Z is going to kiss the ring and bite the bullet so don’t be surprised if you see him and Robert De Niro taking pictures together.”
