Keanu Reeves Paternity Lawsuit Dismissed As "Too Incredible"
An Ontario judge dismissed Keanu Reeves's paternity lawsuit today, saying the evidence in the case was "too incredible." The plaintiff Canadian Karen Sala alleged Reeves was the father of her four children who are now in their mid twenties. Sala demanded $3 million a month in spousal support and $150,000 a month in child support, both retroactive. But, the judge ruled that the trial was "a waste of limited judicial resources" because the DNA tests that the actor consented to in September showed he was not the father of Sala's children.
Court heard Thursday that Sala raised several issues with the DNA results, including the possibility of tampering or that Reeves used hypnosis to affect the results.
"I do know for a fact that he is the biological father," Sala, who represented herself, told the judge, adding that she had proof but could not show it to the court.
Reeves was born in Lebanon, but grew up in Toronto. Sala alleged she grew up in the same area with Reeves, who was her friend. Reeves denied ever meeting Sala. The "Matrix" actor has never married and has no children.
