Everyone has fantasized from time to time about their favorite celebrities, perhaps even imagined what it would be like to be in a relationship with them, but some people have taken things a little too far—and by a little, we mean a lot! As it turns out, the life of a celebrity isn't all fun and games: there's a creepy community of celebrity stalkers who are making sure of it.
Female celebrities tend to fall victim to stalkers the most, but male celebrities don't get away easily either. Keanu Reeves had to ask for a restraining order against a 38-year-old man called Bryan Dixon on Jan. 31. His lawyer stated that Dixon has been harassing Reeves and Reeves' partner, Alexandra Grant, for months. This came after 'The Matrix' actor hired a security firm to investigate Dixon, who he claimed has continuously found different ways to gain access to his property. Dixon has been posting on social media claiming that his name is "Jasper Keith Reeves" and expressing his desire to assign all of his personal rights to the actor so that Reeves will be put in "charge" of him in some way. On one occasion, he left a backpack containing a DNA test kit on Reeves' property, which private investigators believe was intended "to use on Mr. Reeves in a delusional attempt to prove they are blood-related."
Dixon most recently tried to enter Reeves' property on Jan. 20 at which time the police became involved. The 'John Wick' star hopes to obtain a temporary restraining order to protect himself and his partner.
Sadly, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to obsessive celebrity fans. From sleeping in stars' beds to simultaneously threatening their lives and proclaiming their love, check out this gallery of celebrity stalker stories that will make you shiver.
