The ex-girlfriend of Hollywood scion Chet Hanks is suing him for $1 million, claiming he physically and verbally abused her during their relationship.

Attorneys for Kiana Parker charged that Hanks — the 30-year-old son of actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson — had shown “an ever-escalating pattern of domestic abuse,” as they announced the lawsuit during a press conference in Texas on Tuesday.

“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,” lawyer Kevin Murray said.

The suit, filed Monday in Fort Bend County, details several alleged incidents of abuse, including a Jan. 8 fight that led Parker to file a restraining order against Hanks, which was granted later that month.

The two began dating in March 2019 and moved in together about a year later, the court documents say.

On Oct. 18, 2020, Parker claims Hanks became enraged when she wanted to leave their hotel room in New Orleans, where he was filming for the Showtime series “Your Honor.”

Later that night, he allegedly “became aggressive and hostile.” When she tried to leave, Hanks “grabbed her with great force, by her right arm causing instant pain,” the suit alleges.

“Defendant Hanks refused to release the grip, and as Parker sought to get out of the violent situation, Defendant Hanks pushed her with such force that Parker knocked over tables in the room,” the court docs say.

As she tried to get away again, Hanks allegedly pushed her, called her a “ghetto black bitch” and smashed her phone into pieces, according to the lawsuit.

He then allegedly warned her not to report the incident, saying that she should remember he was “Chet Hanks and she wasn’t shit, no one would believe her, she was just a ghetto black bitch.”

The next month, in Sugar Land, Texas, Hanks allegedly “threatened to “blow [Parker’s] brains out” in a murder-suicide, the lawsuit claims. The conversation allegedly took place while Parker’s 9-year-old twins were in the house.

The couple finally agreed to split on Jan. 6, but two days later, when Parker went to move her stuff out of the Sugar Land house, Hanks allegedly “became extremely aggressive.”

She claims he came at her with a knife — and that she defended herself by swinging a pot at his head.

Footage published by TMZ last month showed Hanks accusing Parker of threatening him with a knife, not the other way around.

The video showed Parker lunging at Hanks with a pot, leaving him with a gushing head wound. He also accused her of stealing his money and credit cards.

Hanks subsequently sued Parker for assault and battery, theft and return of the money she allegedly stole from him.

He didn’t immediately respond to Parker’s lawsuit on Tuesday, but about an hour after the press conference, announced he would be dropping his “White Boy Summer” music video early.

“F–k it,” he wrote on Instagram. “I was gonna wait til Friday but I see y’all really ready for this. ‘White Boy Summer’ dropping 6 p.m. today.”

Parker’s lawyers, Murray and D’Angelo Lowe, said they had reached out to Hanks’ and his famous parents about Parker’s accusations “multiple times” in January and February, but never heard back.

“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.”

Hanks’ attorney, Marty Singer, told The Post in statement that, “We consider the claims filed by Kiana Parker to be a shakedown.”

Singer noted that his client was suing Parker over the January incident, claiming that “while Ms. Parker was accompanied by a huge male carrying a gun she viciously attacked Chet which caused him to profusely bleed.”

“Her claims are completely false, fabricated and fictional,” Singer added.

Mysterious lights streak across Seattle sky

Stargazers in the Pacific Northwest were left puzzled by another mysterious light show that illuminated the sky on Tuesday night.

Residents in the Seattle-area posted video on social media that showed lights streaking across the sky shortly after 9 p.m.

“Anyone know what I’m looking at flying by in the sky tonight? #ufo #seattle,” one Twitter user wrote, along with a video of passing lights.

Another person said on Twitter: “Um, someone want to explain this line of lights that just streaked across the Seattle sky? #ufo”

But the National Weather Service’s Seattle office tweeted that the lights appear to be linked to an earlier SpaceX satellite launch out of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Less than two months ago, a similar light show in the same area left residents equally confused at first.

But the streaking lights were determined to be the remains of a SpaceX rocket entering earth’s atmosphere.

California woman arrested for allegedly harrasing black delivery driver

A California woman is facing hate crime charges for allegedly harassing a black delivery driver with racial slurs last month, a report said.

Julie Warland, 35, is accused of targeting Amazon driver Kendall McIntosh on April 18 as he was finishing up his deliveries in North Berkeley, KRON reported.

Warland, along with her boyfriend, allegedly confronted McIntosh and Warland accusing him of speeding.

McIntosh told the station that the couple followed him to his next stop, where Warland allegedly started screaming at him and calling him names, including the n-word.

“Instantly just started cursing me out like, first sentence I’m getting cursed at,” McIntosh said.

“I was getting just racially profiled from the jump,” he said.

During the confrontation, Warland also jumped into the delivery van and grabbed a hold of the steering wheel to prevent McIntosh from leaving, he told the outlet.

“I was just trying to do my job and she wouldn’t allow me to,” McIntosh said.

Neighbors recorded part of the confrontation.

In a clip obtained by KRON, Warland and her boyfriend can be seen approaching McIntosh in front of a truck. Screaming can also be heard in the footage.

Berkeley police are treating the incident as a hate crime.

Warland is charged with suspicion of false imprisonment, battery, using offensive words and willfully threatening a person based on their appearance, the report said.

Murder suspect and his infant son killed in police shootout

A Mississippi man who allegedly murdered two people was killed along with his infant son after he kidnapped the child and led police on a wild chase that ended in a shootout on Monday night.

The shootout occurred after Eric Smith, 30, led police on a miles-long pursuit that began in Louisiana, where he allegedly shot dead his ex-girlfriend Christin Parker, 32, and her 26-year-old nephew Brandon Parker earlier on Monday, WLOX reported.

Smith then kidnapped the child before police located his vehicle, leading to the chase.

After crossing into Mississippi, Smith avoided a tire deflation device laid out by police and eventually stopped his car in Harris County.

With the infant inside the car, Smith and police exchanged gunfire. Smith was shot and killed.

The baby, identified as La’Mello Parker, was also struck, according to the report.

Parker was hospitalized, but pronounced dead early Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The county coroner will determine if the baby was struck by a bullet or shrapnel, the report said.
