Tyga: Bruce Jenner Is His Real Life Hero After Brave Interview
“Tyga thought it was epic! For him to sit down and tell people about his inner personal feelings and thoughts is beyond profound,” our source says. “Tyga learned from it too. Seeing that interview made him see Bruce in an entirely different light. He thinks he’s a role model to all fathers out there and thinks he’s the glue that holds the Kardashian and Jenner families together.”
“Tyga wants King Cairo [his son] to be surrounded by brave, honest people who are true to themselves and have the will to live free lives,” the insider adds. “He wants King to know Bruce. He would like for his son to know the man who just may have redefined the word brave. Tyga thinks Bruce is inspiring and would love for King to know a real life, living, breathing hero instead of playing with his fake action figure toys.”
