Actor Chet Hanks attends the Screening of the BET Series "Tales" at DGA Theater on June 26, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Chet Hanks and ex-girlfriend Kiana Parker are both alleging violence from a volatile relationship that recently ended, gossip web site TMZ reports.

Per the outlet, their relationship turned violent back in January at Hanks’ home in Sugarland, Texas, where Chet recorded an altercation on his phone. He began filming Parker saying, “are you threatening me with a knife?” She appeared to smack him, while her other hand was holding a pot. Then, a bloodied Chet reappearing in the next frame, and said she attacked him with a knife — which she denies in the video.

Parker got a restraining order against Hanks in January, alleging he was violent towards her on multiple occasions from October 2020 to January 2021. During one incident, while the couple was in New Orleans for Chet to shoot Your Honor, Parker claims he became enraged when she said she was going to go get food, by grabbing her wrists and arms and flinging her around to keep her in the room. She claimed tables were knocked over, had a bottle thrown at her, and that he chased her down the hallway in his boxers. She also alleges he told her that no one would believe her because she was “just a ghetto Black b—-” and he was “Chet Hanks.” Hanks denies the allegations and was unaware she went to court for a restraining order.

On Hanks’ end, he recently filed a lawsuit against Parker over the bloody face incident. He says it started when he broke up with Kiana after learning she’d allegedly been stealing thousands of dollars on his credit cards from him. Hanks claims his ex showed up that day with three men, one of whom he says flashed a gun at him. He’s suing her for assault and battery, theft, and return of the money she allegedly stole. Hanks’ attorney, Marty Singer, told the media outlet “her claims are completely false, fabricated and fictional.”

Kiana’s version of the January video claims she arrived at Hanks’ home to get her stuff with movers in tow. She said Hanks was antagonizing her and he grabbed a knife in a threatening way. In response, she grabbed a pot in self-defense and swung it. She further claims Hanks chased her out to the street, where she says he attacked her until others came to her aid.

30-year-old Hanks just recently alluded to the fact he’s really into Black women on Instagram after a series of posts following his viral video “White Boy Summer.”

In a follow-up video he asks himself, “does that make it a Black Queen Summer for you? I say, do you know me? ‘Cause if you did you’d know that’s all year round… Respectfully.”
