While Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton are currently taking a much-deserved break from the spotlight, their nephew Tyler Clinton is taking a step right into it. The 22-year-old just signed a modeling contract with IMG Models, the agency that represents some very familiar faces, including Ashley Graham, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Karlie Kloss. Tyler already has a slew of modeling shots on his IMG page, and, if you paid close attention throughout Hillary Clinton’s campaign, perhaps you will recognize him. Tyler made a few headlines in July after appearing at the Democratic National Convention.
Although it is unclear exactly when the young Clinton signed with IMG, he has already updated his Instagram bio to reflect his new representation, as well as to note the lifestyle move he made for it: “LA -> NYC,” his profile reads, which has been fact-checked by TMZ, which reports that Clinton has indeed relocated to New York City. (IMG could not provide further comment when contacted by W.)
Tyler is the son of Roger Clinton, Jr., the former president’s 60-year-old half brother. Tyler graduated from Loyola Marymount University in California in May 2016, and his uncle Bill gave the commencement address at his graduation, according to the Los Angeles Times. The duo seem to have a close relationship, as Tyler recently posted a photo on Instagram of his arm around Bill in Chappaqua, New York—where the former POTUS lives—with the caption “boys day.” Tyler’s Instagram also features a slew of modeling photos; we can only hope more are to come.
This is not the first time Tyler’s name has appeared in the news, of course. On November 10, 2016, just two days after his aunt’s presidential election loss, news came out that Tyler was arrested on “suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly striking a man over the head with a bottle in a violent bar brawl,” as reported by RadarOnline at the time. The alleged altercation was confirmed to the website by the police, who say it took place over a year before, in June 2015.
And now, some eye candy. Enjoy.
