Jay-Z and Robert De Niro reportedly got into a heated exchange during a star-studded birthday bash for Leonardo DiCarprio.

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.

Cameron Diaz, Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock were just some of the A-listers who attended the bash, that raised a reported $3 million for the Leonardo DiCaprio foundation.
