It seems like it went down in Tribeca last night when the neighborhood’s two most famous residents, Robert De Niro and Jay-Z, recently had something of a public back and forth. Well, it was actually more one-sided beef, as De Niro did most of the talking, scolding Jay for not returning his calls.
The two were at Leonardo DiCaprio’s recent birthday party, and Jay went up to pay his respects to the don, but when he got there De Niro lit into him, saying that Jay was rude and disrespectful for failing to return six of his calls and dropping the ball on recording a song for the TriBeCa Film Festival that he had agreed to do. Jay-Z tried to ease the tension with a joke, saying he’s terrible with the phone, but De Niro wasn’t having it. Beyoncé came over and tried to break the tension, but that didn’t help. De Niro had an angry point to make and he was going to make it. All the other guests at the party were talking about it, apparently, causing DiCaprio to sit sullenly at a table by himself, pointy party hat drooping down, frowning and muttering about “that stupid old man ruining my party.”
