Dustin Tyler has gone viral after posting a series of TikTok videos claiming to be Keanu Reeves’ son. Although supposedly just a series of jokes, many of his followers are beginning to wonder if he was indeed the Hollywood star’s child.

Known for his blockbuster films, Keanu Reeves is a role model for aspiring actors and young men. If it’s not about his films, the headlines about him focus on his kind heart or his wise ideas.

Although his career of more than three decades was marked by success, his personal life was accompanied by some tragedies. Nonetheless, Reeves remains a kind man to others.

The actor does not have his own family to share his good heart and love. However, he has admitted to loving his “Speed” co-star Sandra Bullock in the past. Unfortunately, their relationship never evolved into anything other than being friends.

Despite having no family, a TikTok content creator has caused an online stir after claiming to be the ‘Matrix’ star’s son.

Dustin Tyler calls himself Keanu Reeves’ son

Born on October 13, 1985 in Mankato, Minnesota, Dustin Tyler is a tattoo artist and TikTok influencer with over one million followers on the social media platform.

Unfortunately, their daughter, Ava, was stillborn on Christmas Eve the following year, when Syme was in her eighth month of pregnancy. The tragedy caused grief to the couple, which ultimately led to their separation.

He primarily grew up in Oregon, where he reportedly became a tattoo artist at age 18. In addition to his profession, Tyler shares humorous content on his TikTok account which attracts him thousands of viewers.

However, he gained more fame after posting videos claiming Reeves was his father. “When you have a beautiful personality because your dad is Keanu Reeves and you’re beautiful because your mom is a famous model,” he wrote in a post.

In another TikTok video, he shared what it was like growing up as the son of a famous Hollywood star. He said:

“I have a lot of money. I don’t mind spending it.”

Tyler also shared a photo with Reeves at an alleged charity event in Los Angeles. Although his series of posts had no truth, some of his viewers began to wonder if Tyler was really Reeves’ son.

Some of her fans note on her posts that the “John Wick” star has no children. However, he continually tries to prove them wrong.

All of Tyler’s TikTok content is based on fictional stories, which he doesn’t deny. In fact, the social media star already wrote the warning in her TikTok bio, “JOKES/SATIRE.”

Keanu Reeves lost his daughter

Although Tyler isn’t actually Reeves’ son, the actor was once on the verge of becoming a father. In 1998, Keanu Reeves met his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Syme, and conceived a child.

Unfortunately, their daughter, Ava, was stillborn on Christmas Eve the following year, when Syme was in her eighth month of pregnancy. The tragedy caused grief to the couple, which ultimately led to their separation.

Two years later, the still devastated Reeves was again heartbroken when he learned that Syme had died in a car accident.

The deaths of loved ones plagued Reeves’ life for years. The actor has also lost two loved ones in the past, including his sister, Kim Reeves, who died of cancer, and his best friend, River Phoenix, who died after taking a mixture of illegal substances.

Reeves kept his personal life private for many years. However, he proudly walked the 2022 MOCA Gala red carpet with his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant. The couple made their relationship known during their public debut at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in November 2019.
