Reeves accused

Keanu Reeves was behind the wheel of a Porsche that reportedly grazed a celebrity photographer standing in the path of the sports car, investigators said yesterday. The photographer fell to the ground, and paramedics were called after Mr. Reeves’ car reportedly struck the man Monday at 7:30 p.m., said Deputy Ed Hernandez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Mr. Reeves, 42, wasn’t hurt. Associated Press left a phone message seeking comment from his representative.

“He grazed a paparazzi standing in front of his Porsche, and the man fell to the ground,” Deputy Hernandez said. It wasn’t known how fast the Porsche was traveling.

The actor, whose film career includes “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” “Speed” and the “Matrix” trilogy, was leaving a parking space in the Avenida Tranquila residential area near Los Verdes County Golf Course about 30 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, Deputy Hernandez said. The photographer, whose name wasn’t released, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of unknown injuries, he added.

The Sheriff’s Department was investigating.

Pam going it alone

Bad news for Borat and all the other Pam Anderson admirers out there: She’s taking herself off the market.

That goes for ex-hubby Tommy Lee, too — although some wondered whether the flames were reignited after the “Baywatch” babe and Motley Crue drummer were seen in a tender lip lock outside a popular L.A. eatery, TMZ.com reports.

Not so, Miss Anderson says on her personal blog.

“We are better off on our own right now and work [sic] on our friendship. … I’m really not interested in bringing any other men into our lives,” she writes, referring to herself and her two sons, who are 9 and 10 years old.

However, she’s leaving the door open — just a little bit — for Mr. Lee, saying that she wants her boys to spend time with their father and noting that he has been involved “in a productive but small way over the years.”

Stevie sued

Stevie Wonder has been sued for $3.5 million by a man who claims he was fired from Mr. Wonder’s Los Angeles radio station after questioning a purported sexual harassment incident involving the music legend, says the Detroit Free Press, citing a report from TMZ.com.

The Los Angeles County Superior Court suit, filed by Reginald Thomas Jr., claims KJLH-FM fired him after he talked with his boss about claims that some station employees were engaged in payola — accepting money for playing songs.

Mr. Thomas’ lawsuit also states that he informed his boss that “Stevie Wonder had telephoned one of the sales associates late at night on her cellular phone.” According to the complaint, Mr. Thomas claims that when he brought up the reported incident, one of his bosses responded, in part, “It’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.”

No response from Mr. Wonder’s publicist or the station.

His super ex-girlfriend

Uma Thurman and hotelier Andre Balazs have split up, Associated Press reports.

Robert Garlock, Miss Thurman’s New York-based publicist, says the couple — who have been together on and off for three years — are no longer an item.

Miss Thurman, 36, received an Oscar nomination for 1994’s “Pulp Fiction” and also has starred in two “Kill Bill” movies. She filed for divorce in 2004 from Ethan Hawke, with whom she has two children.
