Chet Hanks, the son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, is barred from possessing a handgun.
A Texas judge issued the ban in January after granting Hanks' ex-girlfriend a protective order.
According to an affidavit, Hanks first became hostile toward his then-girlfriend in October 2020.
Chester Hanks, the son of actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson and better known as "Chet," was ordered by a Texas judge in January to cease contact with his ex-girlfriend and was barred from possessing a handgun.
The temporary protective order was issued in January but was first reported Wednesday by the Houston Chronicle. Hanks had made headlines this week for his social media posts that declared this summer "white boy summer" and "Black queen summer."
According to the affidavit, filed January 12 by Kiana Parker, Hanks' ex-girlfriend, the actor threatened to kill both Parker and himself, telling her in December 2020 he would "blow her brains out" and "blow his brains out as well."
Hanks first became violent with Parker in October 2020 while Hanks, an actor, was in New Orleans filming the Showtime series "Your Honor," Parker said in the document. The two began dating in March 2019, according to the affidavit.
A representative for Hanks did not immediately return Insider's request for comment Wednesday, though a lawyer for Hanks denied Parker's claims to Page Six.
When Parker attempted to leave their hotel room, he grabbed her arm, threw a bottle at her, and dragged her from the door, according to the affidavit. The incident followed an earlier argument about whether the couple would go out for dinner or order food to their hotel room, the document said.
During the altercation, Hanks called Parker, who is Black, a "ghetto Black b---h" and other "hurtful things," she alleged in the document. Parker also accused Hanks of breaking her backpack and her cellphone after he grabbed her and swung her.
"He grabbed my phone out of my backpack and went to the balcony and told me he would throw it off but came back in and told me to tell him where his phone was, it was my last chance, and then started slamming my phone on the floor of the hotel room breaking it," Parker said in the affidavit. "He found his phone shortly after, and I grabbed my backpack again and ran out of the room, in only my pajamas."
Hanks also threatened to jump from the hotel room's balcony if Parker left him, according to the document.
Things soured again in late December last year, about a week after Hanks returned to the couple's home in Sugar Land, Texas, according to the affidavit. Hanks told Parker he would "blow [her] brains out" and said he "didn't want to live and would blow his brains out" too, the affidavit said.
In the affidavit, Parker said she had her twin children in the home with her, waited until Hanks fell asleep, and left. She later returned to the home with her mother and hid Hanks' gun, she said.
In early January, Hanks became irate and started to drive "erratically" after Parker informed Hanks she wanted to end their relationship. Two days later, on January 8, Parker says she returned to the home with movers, her assistant, and a "handyman," and was greeted by a hostile Hanks, who "put his hands on a knife" while she packed up the kitchen.
Parker said she picked up a pot and swung it at Hanks, who chased her out of the house, growled at her, and attempted to take her phone from her after she began recording him.
"During this process, I was screaming and asking for help," she said. "The movers had come outside, the handyman and multiple neighbors were outside as well. A man driving by stopped, yelled for Chet to get off of me and called the police."
Hanks left the property but Parker filed a report with the police, according to the affidavit.
A Fort Bend County judge on January 14 granted the protective order against Hanks, writing "that family violence has occurred, was committed by Chester Marlon Hanks, and there is a clear and present danger that family violence committed by Chester Marlon Hanks is likely to occur again in the future, unless restrained by the Court."
The judge also suspended Hanks' permit to possess a handgun in the state.
In a video obtained by TMZ of the January 8 incident, which was published Wednesday, a bloodied Hanks claimed that Parker attacked him with a knife. In the video, Parker denies that accusation and says that Hanks "pushed" her. In the video, Hanks said the altercation occurred after he accused Parker of stealing his money and credit cards and used it to pay rent.
"The day after Chet Hanks confronted Kiana Parker about stealing money from his credit card, while Ms. Parker was accompanied by a huge male carrying a gun, she viciously attacked Chet with a knife, which caused him to profusely bleed. It is all on video and the undisputed video tells the whole story. Her claims are completely false, fabricated and fictional," Hanks' attorney Marty Singer told Page Six.
TMZ reported Hanks recently filed a lawsuit against Parker. A lawyer for Parker did not immediately return Insider's request for comment.
