Keanu Reeves has been granted a temporary restraining order against a man whom he says had been harassing him and trespassing into his property for months.
The alleged stalker, Bryan Keith Dixon, 38, is accused of breaking into Reeves’ Hollywood Hills home six times between Nov. 5, 2022, and Jan. 20, according to court documents first reported by TMZ.
The first incident allegedly saw Dixon entering through a side gate before falling asleep in the backyard.
Twelve hours later, the intruder allegedly returned with a “suspicious and alarming” backpack that contained a “bizarre” note and a DNA testing kit. As it turned out, he aimed “to prove they are blood-related,” according to the documents.
Reeves’ private security team reportedly found social media posts by Dixon identifying himself as “Jasper Keith Reeves.”
