Dustin Tyler is an American model, tattooist, barber, and social media influencer. He is popular across platforms such as Tik Tok and Instagram for his satirical videos where he makes outlandish claims. One such claim is that he is the son of Keanu Reeves but this is not true.
Who is Dustin Tyler?
Dustin Tyler is an American tattooist, tattoo model, barber, and internet personality. He was born on October 13, 1995, and is presently 28 years old. Tyler hails from the town of Mankato, Minnesota, and spent his formative years there as well as in Oregon.
He was raised by his mom and stepdad and dabbled into drugs at a young age. He was also a bit of a brat while growing up, and all this affected his education and nearly derailed his life. However, at some point, he decided to clean his act up. Tyler spent copious amounts of time in the gym as a way to take his mind away from drugs and built up an amazing physique. He also completed his GED.
Dustin Tyler worked regular jobs for a while. However, by 2018, a friend noticed his good looks and ripped physique and asked him to model clothing for him online. The friend also advised him to set up an Instagram account of his own, and he soon grew popular on the platform.
Is Dustin Tyler Keanu Reeves’ Son?
Dustin Tyler is not Keanu Reeves’s son and is not related to him in any way. The rumors about Tyler being related to Keanu Reeves originate from the social media influencer himself, as he has claimed that he is Keanu Reeves’ son in multiple Tik Tok videos.
After gaining fame on Instagram, Dustin decided to extend his activities to Tik Tok in 2020. He opened his account with the false premise that he was a former child star that had become unrecognizable as an adult. This storyline was a bit plausible, given his looks, and he reeled in some followers.
Tyler then started making videos claiming that he had dated the likes of Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande. He also claimed that Keanu Reeves was his father. Of course, people soon caught on that he was joking, and his account was marked accordingly.
Therefore, even though they may resemble each other a bit, Dustin Tyler is not Keanu Reeves’ son and is not related to him in any way. What’s more, Reeves is Canadian, while Tyler is American. There is also the fact that the actor does not have any children.
Meanwhile, Keanu Reeves has wisely decided not to respond to all the outlandish claims by Dustin Tyler, which is obviously a good thing as responding would give the story more life.
Did Keanu Reeves Have a Daughter?
Keanu Reeves had a daughter named Ava Archer Syme-Reeves, but she was unfortunately stillborn, i.e., born dead, on the 24th of December 1999. Reeves had Ava with his then-girlfriend, the late Jennifer Syme, a Hollywood production assistant and working actor.
She and Reeves met at a party in 1998 and started dating that same year. By 1999, they were expectant parents and looked forward to welcoming their children. The baby was, however, stillbirth. In the aftermath, the couple broke up but tried to remain friends. They were even speculations that they might reconcile, but Jennifer Syme was unfortunately killed in a car crash in 2001.
Reeves has kept a low profile since all these tragic events, but he is now dating an artist and author named Alexandra Grant. He is now in his 50s but does not have any kids yet. He has revealed that the grief and loss he suffered in the past is one that will always be with him.
