Keanu's father Desperate To Regain Contact

Hollywood hunk KEANU REEVES's ex-convict father SAMUEL is unemployed and he's longing to see his estranged movie star son.

SAMUEL NOLIN REEVES, who divorced from Keanu's mother, PATRICIA when the MATRIX star was just 2-years-old, hasn't seen Keanu for 24 years, after his mother - sick of her ex-husband's inability to stop taking drugs - put her foot down and banned any further relations.

Having spent six years behind bars - after he was found guilty of cocaine and heroin possession - 62-year-old Samuel insists he has turned his life around and is desperate to see the son he lost touch with. He says, "I haven't spoken to Keanu since he was 13. His mother took him away from us and he hasn't been back in touch. (SVD/WN/PDD)
