According to the Crestor brand (rosuvastatin) package insert, the use of grapefruit is not a restriction when taking rosuvastatin.
I also and called the manufacturer and read the customer leaflet (I do not take the med, someone close to me does) ran an interaction check, Crestor interacts with other medication, but no interaction with grapefruit.
What should I avoid while taking Crestor?
Avoid using antacids without your doctor's advice. Use only the type of antacid your doctor recommends, and do not take it within 2 hours after taking Crestor. Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb Crestor.
Avoid eating foods that are high in fat or cholesterol. Crestor will not be as effective in lowering your cholesterol if you do not follow a cholesterol-lowering diet plan.
Avoid drinking alcohol. It can raise triglyceride levels and may increase your risk of liver damage.

I have the patient leaflet of Crestor in my hands from AstraZeneca, and grapefruit is no mentioned at all.
