Vin Diesel Broke Down After Paul Walker's Death

Vin Diesel & Paul Walker

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker filmed the first Fast & Furious movie over twelve years ago. Vin Diesel made his first public comments about Paul Walker's death two days after Walker's car wreck. He also attended a memorial for Walker at the crash site and briefly addressed fans earlier this week.

Earlier tonight, Vin Diesel posted an update to his Facebook, detailing what he did right after he heard the news. Vin Diesel wrote, "When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother's house...

I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs.

His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry... I said sorry? You're the mother who lost a son?... She said yes, but you lost your other half..."

Paul Walker’s family has asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul’s charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Donations can easily be made through their website at
