(UnitedVoice.com) – Fans and colleagues alike praise Keanu Reeves as a kind, generous, self-reflective, humble, and centered individual who also happens to act in blockbuster films that have made him millions. Internet stories abound of his random acts of kindness performed anonymously and without fanfare. Despite his good humor and patience, the actor recently followed the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) advice and asked his attorney to file a restraining order against someone who was stalking him.
On Tuesday, January 31, Mathew Rosengart, a lawyer for Reeves, filed a petition with the Los Angeles Superior Court asking for a temporary restraining order (TRO) against Bryan Keith Dixon, 38. The request describes the interloper as a transient who repeatedly “engaged in an ongoing course of alarming and harassing/threatening conduct.”

The court granted the TRO, stipulating that Dixon must remain at least 100 yards away from Reeves or his romantic partner, Alexandra Grant. Yet, the stalker’s actions caused the actor to hire security personnel to document intrusions on his property and investigate the transient’s criminal background. Dixon reportedly trespassed on the star’s property in the Hollywood Hills no less than six times between November 1, 2022, and January 20, trying to contact the philanthropist each time.
The homeless man claims to be related to Reeves. In one incident, Dixon left a backpack with a DNA test. He also made several posts on social media claiming he and the actor were blood relatives. The posts, described as bizarre, disturbing, and incoherent, date back to August 2022. The trespasser claimed he wants to relinquish his “personal rights” to the actor and wants the star to accept responsibility for his care by having the state put Reeves “in charge” of him.
The actor’s security team found Dixon had an extensive criminal background, including assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. The court filing noted the instances of trespassing and harassment have caused Reeves and Grant significant distress.
A Los Angeles court has ordered Dixon to appear on February 24.
