Keanu's Not So Excellent Lawsuit

11/5/2007 10:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Keanu Reeves has been smacked with a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages, courtesy of a paparazzo he rammed with his Porsche.

TMZ has the court papers filed just hours ago by Alison Silva, a Brazilian snapper who says the "Matrix" star struck him (yup, Alison's a guy) in the knee on March 19, 2007 -- outside a clinic in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

At the time, Keanu was reportedly handcuffed, but it is unclear if he was charged.

Mr. Reeves, Do not let that bozo get anything you have worked so hard for. It is time for
those paps to take personal responsibility and pay their own bills if they choose their 'hagfish' jobs. Common sense? Anybody seen it lately?

More like a "snapper" is fair game - one should be cash awarded for hitting such.

I once ran over a red snapper - ran from the law but then the law won.

Keanu - anyone named that should be arrested - then taken to Maui & be beaten with sugar cane stalks.

It would have been really cool if he did some Matrix levitation then kicked the snapper in his Brazilian tiny zipper.

Pretty clear he forgot to back-up and hit him again "dead center! although it does sound as though he needs a larger car, like maybe,..... a Hummer.

Sorry, but they shouldn't be allowed to sue when they stand in front of cars just to get the money shot.

That pap planned it from the get-go (same with the ones putting their feet under Britneys wheels). Quick cash. I feel bad for Keanu. He tries so hard to just live a quiet life. You never hear about him and then crap like this hits.

Clearly LA cars & fossil fuels are the root of all evil people - drive a Lexus hybrid perhaps?

Shitney, please drop of the face of the planet.    

Be careful Keanu. Don't kill any of them it's not worth it.
