Hello Everyone,
I am fairly new to this site. I must admit that I am not a big fan of Mr. Reeves nor have I ever been inclined to be a fan of anyone famous, however, in the case of Mr. Reeves - I find him absolutely intriguing (He exuded such compassion in the Day the Earth Stood Still). I think I am hooked, but I am too stubborn to admit it. This has been one of the most responsive site that I have discovered so far (I am not going to look for others, because that would draw me deeper into this obsession or whatever you want to call it). I think if any of his fans would know the answer to this question, it would the fans from this site. Feel free to respond - why does Mr. Reeves not acknowledge his father?

He felt abandoned by his father when he was about 13...from what I've read. He did have a relationship with Sam up until that time according to Sam. Sam has stated that his Mother actually raised the children more than Patricia and apparently at some point there was a custody battle between Patricia Taylor and Sam's mother. Keanu chose to stay with his mother. Apparently Patricia was a rather distant busy woman, when the children were young. Sam had wanted to go to Hawaai and have a pot farm, Patricia was not interested. Sam was a clerk for his stepfather in Beirut, when he met Patricia...then, he took care of his stepfathers race horses and apparently wandered the country. Sam became heavily involved with drugs and became a junky. In the early '90s he was set up and arrested with a large amout of heroin and cocaine. He went to jail for a couple of years. I doubt if his drug problems is what turned Keanu against his Dad, since Keanu has had his own drug problems (anyone with a brain knows it) I can't see how he would hold that against his father. Keanu never seemed to hold River's or Anthony Kiedis' drug problems against them. Keanu has often named people he has admired and they have had serious drug problems...so it is my guess that Keanu was possibly having a tough time with one of his Mother's boyfriends and felt the need to live with his Dad but his Dad had disappeared. I don't Keanu forgave him for that. Just my opinion.

We will never know the answer. It surely is a mystery.

Everyone has an indulgence. Think of this as low cal.

Father. Hmmm, you don't pick you family, you're born into them. Or maybe you do pick your family and the nucleus teaches [us] something. I suppose it depends which side the fence you sit on.

If you didn't have a tumultuous upbringing, I suppose there is no point in discussing. Just too much water under the bridge.

yeah, In a interview he describes his dad as distant, and not there. That may be why he is unable to trust him enough to have a relationship with him. Abandonment no matter at what age is devistating.

I know why he chose to be with his mother instead of his dad! Hahaha! Because he was breast-fed as a baby and of course his loyalty would always be with his mum! Hahaha!

SPAM or NUT me if you want! Hahaha!

I believe it was a custody dispute between Sam's mother and Keanu's mother. Sam's mother lived in Toronto at the time and I believe she took care of Kim and Keanu most of the time.

don't get all loyal, I am a fan of the great man and appreciate him. I said nothing bad directly to you, although a few words do come to mind. I SAID - IT IS A STUPID THREAD - and so it seems I am not the only one who thinks the way I do. WHAT THE F**K has the relationship with his dad got to you with you. Talk about digging in deep...Sorry BUNGEE maybe you should respect his privacy. Or post things about the falling outs you have had with people and why you no longer associate with them.......hummmm.....OH that's right ITS NO ONES BUSINESS BUT YOURS RIGHT, AND YOU DONT WANT PEOPLE KNOWING ABOUT YOUR PRIVATE LIFE ON THE NET RIGHT.....????? WELL I THINK KING KEANU MAY FEEL EXACTLY THE SAME WAY.

Well since Keanu is an actor and he likes to be talked about, I don't see a problem. People talk about other people, we are interested. What kind of fools would we be if we weren't interested in oher humans? Anyway, I love to talk about myself but I don't think anyone here is interested. People come here because they like to talk about Keanu, they are fans. If you don't get that, beno...go away.

I do not feel this man likes this private life to be talked about especially discussing issues concerning a personal situation that had happened many years ago. Celebrity or not. This is a sensitive area of life that should not be openly discussed by some disdainful individuals that do not know him. Only fools are interested in thriving off ones own personal crisis through means of slander.

Gosh, I’m confused now! I like both Donna and uncle wise “Quantum” last comments in here! Both comments actually in my mind are logical!

I’m fortunate enough to have both parents still married and very much in love. Most of my peers aren’t as lucky as me.

I do feel for them and normally I don’t go round asking them about their parents, unless they tell me first, I prefer this way, because I just don’t’ want to upset any of my friends for no reason and spoil the day for them!

Celebrity or not celebrity, something like this can be very personal for anyone! Sigh….

There has, and always will be slander here Bungeegee. Some of it hiding well between the lines, and others stupidity open for all to see.

When someone does not know the truth but yet freely post false accusations concerning an individuals personal life, only leads me to believe that this parallels a story well written for the tabloids. This is slander.
Donna and a few others have been doing this all along with other sensitive discussions.

Maybe I'm on Mars.

Talking about other people and wanting to know about others is something very interesting I think. If not, those magazines,newpapers,movies, books cannot be sold..which mostly talking about people..and as the matter of the fact probably its one of the reason this forum exist!Look at how those papparazi being so crazy just to get a glimpse of celebs and potograph them just because its interesting and knowing the fact that people want it.On top of that its thicken their pockets.Ages people carry tales about others and nowdays people make tonnes of money by telling about other people..Its just our nature I guess..

Have a nice day!

Pino, I apologize if I have offended your integrity and sensibility with my curiosity. I was under the impression that this was a website devoted to discussions regarding Keanu Reeves. I have viewed postings questioning both private issues such as his sexual orientation, the death of his stillborn, and his search for a soulmate to mudane issues such as the length of his beard and the clothes he wears, but I have not read a single posting or rule stating which topic may or may not be discussed. I hadn't realized that you control this discussion forum; therefore, I shall endeavor to ask your omnipotent permission prior to posting anything. Regards.
