Is Chet Hanks racist? Ex Kiana Parker claims he called her 'ghetto Black bitch', sues him for $1M for abuse
From White Boy Summer to defending his usage of the N-word, Chet Hanks has been mired in controversy
Chet Hanks, son of Hollywood's beloved actor Tom Hanks, is still mired in controversy over an alleged 'violent altercation' between him and ex Kiana Parker. After obtaining a temporary restraining order against the star-kid, Kiana is now suing Chet for $1 million as she alleged he roughed her up several times in the time between October 2020 and January 2021, before their violent troubles were outed.
TMZ, who broke the news surrounding Chet and Kiana's violent fight, also obtained the lawsuit filed by the latter, where she elaborates her side of an incident from October 2020 in New Orleans. Kiana alleges the couple were logding at the Windsor Court Hotel where Chet was filming the Showtime drama 'Your Honour'. According to her, there was an incident where he got enraged when she told him she was leaving their hotel room. Chet allegedly grabbed Kiana by the wrists, arms, and pushed her around the room, knocking over tables, reports the outlet.
Is Chet Hanks racist?
Chet also allegedly threatened her that no one would believe her side of the story because he was 'Chet Hanks' and she was 'just a ghetto Black bitch'. Court documents also see Kiana allege that Chet threatened to kill her in a murder-suicide just a month after the New Orleans incident. He made the threats while her twins were at his Sugar Land, Texas home, she claims. But this isn't the first time Chet has said something with racist connotations, as his previous claims about a then-imminent White Boy Summer coming was heavily criticized online too.
The actor has also been slammed in the past for appropriating a Jamaican accent on live streams and in 2015, he had also defended himself using the N-word. Through a series of Instagram stories, as reported by CNN, Chet had said, "hip-hop isn't about race. It's about the culture you identify with". In another video, Chet said the n-word is “an unspoken thing between people who are friends, who understand each other.”
Kiana Parker claims $1 million for abuse
Kiana claims that in the violent January 8 video that made it to the press, Chet's bloodied face was the result of an attack in self-defense. Kiana alleged Chet was extremely aggressive as she was moving her things out of his home that day, and adds he came at her with a knife and that's when she swung a pot at his head to defend herself. Soon she got a temporary restraining order against Chet, and the actor responded with denying the claims and filing a lawsuit for assault and battery against her.
Chet also claimed Kiana had stolen money from him, and in the wake of her recent lawsuit, his lawyer Marty Singer said: "We consider the claims filed by Kiana Parker to be a shakedown. The lawsuit filed by Ms Parker is in response to the lawsuit filed by Chet Hanks against Ms Parker on March 4, 2021." Claiming that the January video was the "undisputed" truth about their relationship, Singer added: "Her claims are completely false, fabricated and fictional."
