Jay-Z and Robert De Niro reportedly got into a heated exchange during a star-studded birthday bash for Leonardo DiCarprio this past weekend, where the legendary actor called Jay “rude” and “disrespectful.”
According to Page Six, De Niro was at a table when Hov walked over to say hello. That’s when sources say De Niro called out Jay-Z, claiming he had called the rapper six times and never heard back.
De Niro apparently was reaching out about a record the hip hop mogul agreed to record for the Tribeca Film Festival, but Jay never called back.
A source told Page Six, “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 who was reportedly unfazed by the tongue-lashing, downplayed the phone tag and even made a joke.
Reps for both parties did not immediately release a statement on the alleged exchange.
