Are we living in the Matrix?
Keanu Reeves has been granted a temporary restraining order against a “stalker”, who has trespassed onto Reeves’ Hollywood Hills property six times in the last two months, per the New York Post.
Keanu’s lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, filed for the restraining order to an LA court on Tuesday.
The alleged stalker is named Brian Keith Dixon, and he’s not just trespassing to see the John Wick star or his home; he believes—no, he insists—that he is directly related to Keanu.
On his social media accounts, Dixon is claiming his name to be “Jasper Keith Reeves”, and wants Keanu to be “in charge” of him and to assign his “personal rights” to Reeves.
TMZ claims that Dixon has even gone as far as leaving a “‘suspicious and alarming’ backpack on Keanu’s property, which [the legal docs] say included a DNA testing kit ‘apparently intended to use on Mr. Reeves in a delusional attempt to prove they are blood-related.’” However, Keanu has denied these claims.
Reeves hired a personal security team in recent months in light of these break-ins to “investigate the alleged intruder”.
“Reeves’ private security team uncovered Dixon’s extensive run-ins with the law, which includes recent convictions for assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct in the state of Rhode Island,” according to NYP.
Dixon is ordered to appear in court later this month. Neither Reeves, his lawyer, nor his security team have released a comment.
Now, you may be thinking, “Keanu filing a restraining order against a possible stalker? I thought this was old news?” And you wouldn’t be wrong. Keanu had dealt with a similar situation back in 2014 when two women trespassed onto the Hollywood star’s property twice in the matter of three days.
“In the first case, on Sept. 12 , Reeves woke up in the middle of the night after hearing noises and found a woman, described as in her mid-40s, hanging out in a chair in his library,” per USA Today. “He was cool but when she told him she was there to meet him, he dialed 911.”
Days later, Reeves wasn’t home when a second intruder broke into his estate and went skinny-dipping in his pool, after allegedly taking a shower in his bathroom. His cleaning crew called Reeves who then called 911.
Both women were detained and taken in for psychological evaluation. No injuries or burglaries were reported in either of the three cases between then and now.
