Is Dustin Tyler Keanu Reeves’s son, or is it a hoax?
In March 2022, he uploaded a video on Instagram in which he was singing in the background, and the captions were reading out his pathetic story. His life story read as follows: ”My Parents got separated even before my mom could tell my dad that she was pregnant. I had never seen him, as I was told from the beginning that my father had passed away. But, as I grew older, I found the truth about my mother. ” I was born the son of the most famous actors in Hollywood.” Surprisingly, his post got 2,602 likes. He went on a ‘son spree’ and posted a myriad of other TikTok videos, calling himself to be Keanu Reeves’s son. Although he has a slight resemblance to John Wick, we think he seeks to make his content engaging and reap likes. Whether he is doing it for fun or wants to grab attention, people wonder if he is Keanu’s real son. If his intention was attention-seeking, he was highly successful in it. On the other hand, some people are asking him to stop this nonsense and get back to the content he used to post before.
Keanu Reeves’s fans have rushed forward to defend him.
Keanu Reeves’s fans are furious to know about a random tattooed boy claiming to be Keanu Reeves’s son out of the blue. They have advised people to think about other important controversies if they really like to stir their brain cells! However, some arguments seem sound, like Keanu’s fans have pointed toward Keanu’s stillborn daughter Ava Archer Symes Reeves. They argue that a father who has lost her child before even seeing her best knows the value of fatherhood. Keanu Reeves has not said anything about the issue, which further increases the likelihood of the claim being nonsense. Dustin Kyler’s claim has greatly hurt Keanu’s fans as they ask how a man can put such a grave allegation on a kind person like Keanu. He can never be such a callous playboy, throwing his son away like garbage.
Keanu Reeves daughter
Keanu Reeves is unanimously one of the most handsome Hollywood actors. He has a quite long history of dating many celebrities. From 1998-to 2001, he was in a relationship with his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Syme. They both had a daughter together named Ava Archer Symes Reeves. On December 24, 1999, Ava was stillborn in the eighth month of Jennifer’s pregnancy. Shortly after, Ava was buried as Keanu Reeves’s daughter. Jennifer and Keanu got separated soon after their daughter’s death. Jennifer died on the spot in a car accident on April 1, 2001.
Dustin Tyler is himself a father of an ‘abandoned’ child.
According to some sources, Dustin had a son from his previous relationship; he fathered the child when he was only 24. However, In June 2021, he shared a picture with his new girlfriend with the caption: ”How she’d got so lucky.” Her name was not mentioned in the post.
