Chet Hanks recently revealed that he just celebrated two years of sobriety! However, RadarOnline.com has obtained photos of the 27-year-old former drug addict looking completely out of it while exiting a building in Beverly Hills, Calif. Click through seven shocking photos of Chet and his famous Forrest Gump father, Tom Hanks, to find out everything there is to know about his struggle to stay sober.
Rita Wilson’s longtime husband and youngest son did not look pleased when they were photographed leaving a medical facility where Chet was said to have undergone outpatient surgery.
But Radar has learned from a source close to Chet that there is nothing to worry about, as he had just left the dentist’s office!
“There was a point where Tom feared that his son may die if he kept going the way he was going,” a source said, referring to Chet’s long battle with addiction that ended more than two years ago.
Luckily, those days are behind them! “Tom and Chet have never been closer and Tom is extremely proud of his son. Although most guys are momma’s boys, Chet is definitely his father’s son,” the insider revealed.
So how’d he do it? At the beginning of his journey, Chet admitted that his now 2-year-old daughter helped him get clean. “Tom supports Chet’s recovery, as does his mom Rita,” the insider told Radar. “Chet also goes to regular meetings and goes to therapy for his issues.”
“Chet knows that he needs to stay clean and as of right now he is being supported 100 percent by his father and mother,” the source said. “They just want him to focus on his recovery.”
