Tom Hanks’ and Rita Wilson’s son Chet Hanks has been sued by his ex-girlfriend Kiana Parker for alleged assault and battery. He is facing a civil lawsuit for $1 million by his former girlfriend. According to reports, a petition was filed in a Fort Bend, Texas court on Tuesday alleging assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit comes a month after Chet filed his own lawsuit against Kiana for theft, assault, conversion and battery. Kiana has alleged three arguments that occurred between the couple in late 2020 that involved Chet placing his hands on her ‘forcefully’ and threatening her. The couple had started dating in 2019 and started living together one year later.
One of the incidents cited by Kiana allegedly occurred on October 18,2020, when Kiana claims she took a trip to New Orleans to support Chet’s role Showtime’s Your Honor when the two had an argument in which he allegedly "grabbed me by the wrist forcefully pulled me into him telling me we were going back to the (hotel) room." In the hotel room, Kiana said Chet "became aggressive and hostile about what transpired earlier" and "started harassing me verbally and forcefully shoving me." The petition further stated, “As the Plaintiff was lying in bed, Defendant Hanks started verbally abusing and threatening her. He shoved her, threatening her with imminent bodily injury while stating, 'I would not disrespect him, he was in control, he would not allow what happened with his mom and dad's relationship to happen to ours' and other things."
Kiana claims that Chet then “grabbed her with great force" when she attempted to leave, adding that he also "pushed her with such force that Parker knocked over tables in the room." She also alleged that he threw a bottle at her and angrily grabbed and pushed her. She alleged the couple later got locked out of their room and she did not report the physical abused when questioned by a security guard, claiming that she held back out of "fear of future reprisals" from Chet.
On the other hand, Chet’s lawsuit against Kiana in Los Angeles Superior Court stems from an incident in January. He has claimed that she stole money from him which is around $5,800 from his bank account. He has also alleged a separate amount, totaling $13,700 which Chet claims Kiana took from a residence they shared up until he broke of their relationship and ended their apartment lease in Houston, Texas on January 8 after discovering the fraudulent charges. He has also alleged that Kiana made extortionist threats after realizing that she is in trouble. Chet’s attorney, Marty Singer, has issued a statement in late March negating the claims of Kiana that the actor-singer “pushed” her and called it “completely false, fabricated and fictional.”
