“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,” Chet’s lawyer Marty Singer told USA Today. “It is all on video and the undisputed video tells the whole story. Her claims are completely false, fabricated and fictional.”
On March 4, Chet filed a civil lawsuit against Kiana in Los Angeles, where the couple also live together, over the Jan. 8 confrontation. He accuses her of assault, battery and stealing money and property worth almost $20,000 and is seeking a jury trial. A hearing over a non-jury trial has been scheduled for 2022. E! News has reached out to Kiana’s rep for comment.
In the court papers, Chet alleges that a day before the confrontation, he learned that Kiana used his debit card to steal about $5,700 from him. He says he broke up with her, canceled his Texas home lease and told her he was moving out. Chet claims that on January 8, Kiana “brought three menacing large men,” including one with a gun, to the house and that she then approached him, smashed a pot in his face and cut him with the knife, causing him to bleed. He says she then began videotaping him and told him she would ruin him. He also claims she stole $13,700 worth of possessions, including a couch, a bed and a TV.
