TOM Hanks' son Chet has been making headlines thanks to his outlandish behaviour online.
But what do we know about the actor's trouble-making son and how many siblings does Chet have? We have the full scoop…
Who is Tom Hanks' son Chet?
Chester 'Chet' Hanks is the first born son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, and hs was raised in Los Angeles California.
The self-confessed ‘black sheep’ of the family, the actor – also known as Chet Haze – has battled cocaine and crack addiction, dealt drugs and had several stints in rehab.
He became a father in April 2016 and he credits his daughter Michaiah – with partner Tiffany Miles – for keeping him clean.
In December 2017, Chet shared a photo of him with his daughter, writing: "The best part of my year. The person who saved my life."
He recently made headlines after making a Jamaican-style speech at the 2019 Golden Globes – which caused a storm on social media with people slamming his “white privilege” and accusing him of cultural appropriation – and it isn't the first race row he’s sparked.
Chet also caused controversy on Instagram in 2015, with several posts claiming he had the right to use the ‘n’ word whenever he wanted.
He later apologized and admitted he was on drugs at the time.
Now clean, the 29-year-old actor and rapper with a love of dirt bikes and guns posts numerous pictures of his heavily tattooed, gym-pumped torso on his Instagram in between plugs for his band, Somewhere Out West and cute pictures of his three-year-old daughter, Michaiah.
Who did he play in Bratz and what else has he starred in?
Chet was kept away from the acting industry until he was 17 when he landed a small part as Dexter in Bratz.
Although he landed minor roles in his teens, including in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and his dad’s directorial debut Larry Crowne, Chet dreamed of a rap career.
While studying at Northwestern College, in 2011, he adopted the name of Chet Haze and released White and Purple – a cover of Whiz Khalifa’s Black and Yellow changed to his college colours.
Following a battle with drug abuse, he worked to get his career on track, landing recurring roles in Shameless and Empire, for which he also recorded the track How Ya Luv That.
Who are Tom Hanks' other children?
Chet and his brother Truman, 24, grew up in a Hollywood mansion, mixing with the kids of screen stars, and enjoyed holidays to exotic locations, including the West Indies.
He has two older siblings, actor Colin, 42, and celebrated writer Elizabeth, 37, from Tom's first marriage.
