Keanu Reeves is the Internet’s Boyfriend. He also happens to be the actual boyfriend of artiste Alexandra Grant. So yeah, he’s cheating on us. And that doesn’t sit well with some Keanu fans, who loathe Alexandra for having the audacity to enter an adult relationship with their prized Canuck gentleman movie star.
One such obsessive, a 67-year-old woman named Cathryn, has taken it to the next (terrifying) level. Alexandra says Cathryn, who has an “extensive history of criminal acts”, is stalking and harassing her. It got so bad she filed a restraining order.
Court documents obtained by The Blast say:
“Over the last several months, and ongoing daily, Ms. Grant has become the victim of an unrelenting and extreme course of conduct by Respondent, who is a stalker and complete stranger. Respondent’s course of conduct has included stalking, cyberstalking, threats, harassment, and other annoying and alarming misconduct.”
The petition goes on to say:
“The harassment commenced after Petitioner was romantically linked to world-famous actor Keanu Reeves, with whom Respondent is disturbingly obsessed. Mr. Reeves is aware and included in Respondent’s numerous social media “hate accounts”, which are comprised of literally thousands of posts.”
And it’s not just online. Alexandra says Cathryn the Stalker (hey, if they’re not gonna give us her last name, we’ll assign her one) is constantly tracking her whereabouts. Cathryn has shown up at public places where Alexandra is scheduled to appear, trespassed on her property, and taken pictures of her car and home and posted them on her hate accounts.
Luckily, the courts OK’ed the request, and Alexandra was Grant-ed (heh) a temporary restraining order. Cathryn has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Alexandra the person, Alexandra’s home, and Alexandra’s work. She’s also banned from contacting her online or posting her picture. There will be a hearing in September that will determine if the order should become permanent.
55-year-old Keanu and 47-year-old Alexandra were last seen together in Berlin, where he’s shooting The Matrix 4. Hmmm, somebody should tell Cathryn that Germany is less than 100 yards away from America. Let’s keep these people separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Lovely, wet buffer.
