Keanu Reeves has been advised by police to seek out a restraining order against a Los Angeles man who is allegedly stalking him, and he is also convinced that he and the actor are related.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves' lawyer Mathew Rosengart filed the temporary restraining order against a 38-year-old man with the Los Angeles Superior Court. According to the documents, the individual has repeatedly "stalked, harassed and trespassed on the actor’s property" and "engaged in an ongoing course of alarming and harassing/threatening conduct" over the course of three months.
There have been at least six "unwanted appearances" at Reeves' home in Los Angeles Country and the documents state that the actor and his partner have faced significant distress since the stalking started.
In November, the first time that the alleged stalker set foot on the property, he tried to break into the home before falling asleep in the backyard. The second time, visiting only 12 hours later, he left a "suspicious and alarming backpack on Mr. Reeves' property" that held items like a "bizarre" note and a DNA testing kit. This kit was intended to be used to prove that the man and the actor are related.
As well as this, there is reportedly an ongoing criminal investigation into this individual by the Los Angeles Police Department.
John Wick: Chapter 4 releases in March and the actor has said that this time, his performance as the assassin has been his "hardest physical role" to date. "They really trained me up to be able to have what we call the toolbox," he told Total Film in an interview. "We took the car-driving to the next level, which I really enjoy. There's 180s, forward-into-reverse 180s, reverse-into-forward 270s, drifting… So it was really fun to get a chance to learn those skills, and to play."
