As Radar previously reported, the ex-girlfriend suing Chet for alleged assault says the formerly sober rapper/actor has been in a downward spiral since falling off the wagon, prompting his famous parents to cut him off financially.

In an exclusive interview, Kiana Parker said Chet began drinking alcohol again early last year, around the time the coronavirus pandemic began making its way across the country. When Tom and Rita found out, Kiana said they stopped paying for his things, which she believes may have affected his treatment of her.

"Our relationship was OK, but he wasn't OK," she told us. "He wasn't treating me bad, he was just dealing with his mom and dad cutting him off because he started drinking and smoking weed again, and that wasn't in their rule book to support him. So they cut him off."

"His apartment was up, his roommate was moving and he didn't have anywhere to go," she said, adding that she helped him find an apartment "to be there when nobody was. He would have bad days when he would get texts from his parents and fight so many demons and so many issues.”

"Where I'm from, how I was raised, my parents love and support, and that's our way of healing and getting through things," Kiana went on, "so me just doing those southern things was what I thought was pouring love, support, being there. I thought that could help. But what I learned is you can't fight anyone else's demons."

"He's been – he's still to this day, I don't care what anyone says, I know him – he's fighting a lot of childhood demons. A lot," she said. "That's the main problem with him is his parents. It's not perfect like the world thinks. So he's dealing with that and was dealing with trying to stay sober with no drinking, but he's back doing that."

Hanks filed his own lawsuit against Parker, claiming she stole money "from him to pay for her travel expenses and travel expenses for her friend." He also alleged that she used his credit cards to pay for her rent, totaling more than $5,000.

Despite the ongoing legal battles at play, Chet seems to be enjoying his big day.

He and a friend appear to be heading somewhere with suitcases, as the birthday boy re-shares many a shoutout on his Instagram Story, including one from his mom.

Chet reposted the image and added, "Love you mom."
