Vin Diesel reacts to Paul Walker's death by way of a rep. On Dec. 1, Gossip Cop reported that Diesel has not publicly commented on the death of Paul Walker -- but his rep said that he's taking the news very hard.
According to the rep, Diesel is "mourning privately" and he's "having a very hard time" coping. This clearly proves that Diesel and Walker had a good relationship and considered one another family -- there have been reports that Diesel didn't "like" Walker and that the two didn't really get along. Perhaps that was how things were when the two actors first met... but it's clear that they had a tight bond.
Vin Diesel reacted to Paul Walker's death privately because he doesn't have a social media account -- but that doesn't mean that he's not hurting. "The Fast and the Furious" actors were very close and all referred to one another as "family." In fact, many of them often posted photos with messages that read, "Fast Fam" or something similar. Sure, these guys made seven movies together but their closeness was so much more than what you usually see on a movie set.
Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Tyrese, and others looked out for each other -- they loved one another. And that makes Walker's passing all the more difficult for them to handle.
