Vin Diesel's Diva Behavior Gets Him in Hot Water

Vin Diesel is such a prima donna, his own publicity company can't even deal with him anymore.

Diesel was scheduled to do a long press junket for his upcoming flick Fast & Furious on Sunday, but he infuriated the event organizers when he decided to show up late and act like a diva.

"No one could get a hold of him," an insider told Page Six. "He didn't pick up his phone and it wasn't until a Universal executive called that he finally picked up and used the lame excuse, 'I'm sick.' "

Four hours later he showed up to the press junket and "didn't look sick. But he did do a couple hours of press."

Apparently his publicist at 42 West was so annoyed by the incident, the firm no longer represents him.

You would think someone like Diesel, whose star is quickly burning out, would be more open to doing press and getting better recognition, but it sounds like his ego has become bigger than his triceps.
