Jay-Z and Robert De Niro got into a very intense debate at a New York restaurant on Saturday. Jay, Beyonce, and De Niro were all at The Darby restaurant for Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday celebration, when Jay-Z decided to approach De Niro’s table to say hello. De Niro did not seem to be having a very good day.
A New York Post source says, “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.” Jay-Z laughed it off, but De Niro did not find it funny at all.
Their heated debate was all over a song that Jay-Z allegedly said he would record for De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival. Jay-Z never followed through, leaving De Niro upset and seeing Jay-Z as “disrespectful”. The argument got so intense that Beyonce had to step in, to calm the waters, to no avail.
