AceShowbiz - Rapper Pitbull will tour with motivational speaker Tony Robbins in 2019. The Feel This Moment hitmaker has appeared at events with the self-help guru, and now they are hitting the road together.
Pitbull made the announcement during a question and answer session at the Billboard Latin Music Conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 25, revealing Robbins was his childhood hero - and he still inspires the rap star.
"My mother looked at him as a hero," Pitbull told Billboard's Leila Cobo.
Their friendship began years ago and Robbins was among those saluting the rapper and entertainer when he unveiled the 2,584th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in 2016.
During the ceremony, Robbins told fans, "His (Pitbull) life could've been completely different, should've been based on the law of averages. He's a man where somewhere inside he's got so much love for people that he couldn't hurt anyone.
"At 17, he did the most important thing that any of us could do... He decided to leave the idea of selling drugs and see how he could light people up with something much more powerful: his music, his heart, his soul".
