"Accuse me of being a father," the actor, 46, told at an NYC screening of his new film Henry's Crime on Monday night. "I had to go to court. It was horrible. I didn't do it. I'm not the dad."

In 2009, Karen Sala claimed Reeves fathered her four now adult children. In a paternity suit, she asked for $3 million a month for spousal support and $150,000 a month in retroactive child support.
