Chet Hanks’ ex-girlfriend has filed a lawsuit against him for $1 million, claiming she was physically and verbally assaulted during the course of their relationship.

Kiana Parker came forward with her legal team in a press conference on Tuesday (Apr. 13, 2021) afternoon in Richmond, Texas, where attorneys Kevin Murray and D’Angelo Lowe described Hanks’ alleged behavior as “an ever-escalating pattern of domestic abuse.”

They also claimed they had tried to reach Hanks’ parents, actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, about Parker’s accusations “multiple times” in January and February, but they “never responded.”


“This is about violence within the confines of a relationship between a man and a woman, a man who mentally and physically and psychologically battered, Kiana Parker,” Murray said.

“I’m sorry, Chet Hanks would have been charged by now,” Lowe added. “Instead, he has not been charged and has made a mockery of Black women in the criminal justice system by proclaiming that it’s going to be a ‘white boy summer,’ and a ‘Black queen summer’ while knowing he mentally and physically abused a Black queen.”

A protective order was filed in Fort Bend County against Hanks in March 2021. The woman's lawyers claim Hanks assaulted their client while they've been in a relationship. They pointed at examples of the alleged abuse, including an incident last October when she visited Hanks in New Orleans while he filmed a TV series.

The protective order also points at an incident in Sugar Land back in January that led her to contact authorities and file charges against him. The attorneys announced the civil lawsuit against Hanks was filed Monday.

In response, Hanks, through his attorney Marty D. Singer, stated the claims are false, deciding to file a lawsuit in return against her.

Hanks seemed unbothered by the looming press conference. He dropped a teaser for his “White Boy Summer” music video, where he’s surrounded by twerking, bikini-clad women as he raps, “Hit the strip club, I’m like thunder. She let me beat it, I’m white boy wonder.”

Roughly an hour after the press conference ended, Hanks suddenly announced he was dropping his music video early. “Fuck it,” he wrote. “I was gonna wait til Friday but I see y’all really ready for this. ‘White Boy Summer’ dropping 6 p.m. today.”
