Author David Gardner claims exclusive access to hidden court papers, in which first spouse Samantha Lewes--real name Susan Dillingham--allegedly accuses him of harassment, verbal abuse and trying to wreck her career.
According to the papers, Lewes said, "My husband has repeatedly verbally abused and humiliated me during the past 90 days in my home.
"This caused me to suffer great emotional distress."
The Tom Hanks Enigma reveals the bitter three-year divorce battle saw Hanks retaliate by claiming Lewes hoped to "squeeze an unfair settlement out of me."
The pair divorced in 1987 but were thought to have reconciled before Lewes' death from bone cancer in 2002.
