Keanu Reeves’ girlfriend is dealing with an alleged stalker who has an extensive history of criminal arrests and convictions.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the actor’s girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, explained the seriousness of the situation in a restraining order petition.
Last week, Alexandra was granted a restraining order against Keanu’s 67-year-old stalker named Cathryn aka Kathryn. The woman had been harassing Alexandra online for months, trespassing on her property and tracking her every movement.
Alexandra’s attorneys obtained a declaration from a Sgt. Daniel Gore who has worked at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for 13 years. In his declaration, he detailed a 2015 criminal investigation over identity theft involving Cathryn aka Kathryn.
The investigation revealed the woman had over 74 aliases and false identities. A 2015 L.A. Times article entitled, “Woman had 74 aliases, stole Hollywood film workers’ IDs, police say” detailed the elaborate scam. At the time, Cathryn was taken into federal custody for violating her probation in a separate 2000 federal case, where she was convicted for federal mail fraud.
According to reports, the alleged stalker had violated the terms of her release numerous times and was wanted by U.S. Marshals at one point.
Alexandra’s attorneys listed the crimes committed by Cathryn in the petition. The convictions have included federal mail fraud, federal mail fraud and use of counterfeit devices, repeated probation violations over the years, and the 2016 Identity theft conviction.
As The Blast first reported, Alexandra was granted her restraining order against Cathryn aka Katherine. In the petition, Alexandra’s attorneys asked the court to order the alleged stalker to stay 100 yards away from her, her home, and her place of work. The court granted the temporary restraining order and will decide on whether to make it permanent at a hearing in September.
Per the court order, Cathryn is not only ordered to stay away from Alexandra physically but is prohibited from posting her photos or talking about her on social media.
In the original petition, Alexandra’s attorneys explained the woman had been making their clients live a living hell for months. The court documents stated, “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.”
Alexandra’s attorneys explained, “respondent is a stranger/stalker engaged in an ongoing course of harassment/threatening conduct for months.”
Further, “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.” She says the harassment has been going on for the last several months.
In the petition, Alexandra’s attorneys said the woman has shown up in public at events, trespassed on her property to take photos of her car and then shared them online, and was constantly, “monitoring and tracking Ms. Grant’s activities, including posting photos of Ms. Grant’s residence online.”
The document said Keanu’s girlfriend has suffered extreme and substantial distress because of the stalker’s “alarming, annoying harassing and threatening course of conduct.”
