Lenny Kravitz and Steven Tyler’s daughters share embarrassment over ‘penisgate’ texts

Zoe Kravitz and Chelsea Tyler share correspondence following their dads 'talking about dicks' on Twitter

The daughters of Lenny Kravitz and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler have expressed their embarrassment over their fathers talking about penises online.

Earlier this week, Kravitz made headlines after his leather trousers ripped during a show in Sweden. He was performing at the Gröna Lund theme park in Stockholm on Monday (August 3) when the crotch of his trousers tore during the first song of his set.

Following photos and footage of the incident surfacing online, Kravitz dubbed it ‘penisgate’ while sharing a text message sent to him by Tyler. In the message, Tyler jokes about being annoyed that he didn’t get to see Kravitz’ penis before.


Now, Zoe Kravitz has shared her correspondence with Chelsea Tyler, who first informed her of their fathers’ public exchanges.

A screenshot of texts between the pair uploaded to Instagram by Zoe shows Chelsea texting her saying: “So our dads talking about dicks on social media is cool”.

Zoe Kravitz later replied: “What?! Oh no.. Twitter? Oh god….. Hahha #penisgate”. See the texts below.

Local newspaper Expressen reports that Kravitz was forced to leave the stage for a few minutes to change his attire.

A fan spoke to the paper about the incident saying, “The producer stepped up and said that they had some problems onstage. A bit later Kravitz came out wearing other trousers. He said ‘sorry, I ripped my trousers’.”
