Keanu Reeves granted restraining order against ‘stalker’
Keanu Reeves has been granted a temporary restraining order against a man who claims to be related to the actor.
‘The Matrix’ star attorney Matthew Rosengart filed documents in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday seeking protection for Reeves and his partner, Alexandra Grant, from a man they say ” has been harassing for months,” according to TMZ.
Bryan Keith Dixon, the 38-year-old man in question, allegedly broke into the actor’s $5.6 million Hollywood Hills property six times between Nov. 5 and Jan. 20.
According to court documents seen by the outlet, Dixon attempted to get in touch with the ‘John Wick’ star each time.
That went until Reeves had to hire a private security team to investigate the alleged intruder, who shared several social media posts in which he claimed to be the actor’s blood relative.
Reeves and his partner, Alexandra Grant, claim the alleged stalker has “been stalking them for months”.
In his bizarre social media posts, Dixon called himself “Jasper Keith Reeves” and said he wanted to put the actor “in charge” of him, per TMZ.
He also said he wanted to cede his “personal rights” to the actor, the newspaper adds.
TMZ reports that Dixon once left a backpack containing a DNA test kit on the actor’s property in a desperate attempt to prove they are related — a claim Reeves denies.
Reeves’ private security team uncovered Dixon’s numerous run-ins with the law, which include recent convictions for assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in the state of Rhode Island.

Dixon is due in court on February 24.
The Post has contacted representatives for Reeves for comment.
This isn’t the first time the actor has obtained a restraining order from an alleged stalker.
In 2014, a 50-year-old woman, Kerry Colen Raus, was ordered to stay away from Reeves after she was found at Reeves’ home where she swam in his pool and showered in his house.
The documents indicate that Raus had been placed in a mental institution.
