Jackie Chan, the world-famous actor is in the news for all wrong reasons. The actor who is known for his action films, acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, use of improvised weapons, and innovative stunts is grabbing all the limelight because of his daughter.
Etta Ng Chok Lam is Chan’s biological daughter but has previously claimed not to have a relationship with her father. She is a lesbian. In the video, Ng and her girlfriend, Andi Autumn, state that they are homeless because of “homophobic parents.” They said in the video that:
“We’ve been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents. We pretty much slept under a bridge, and other things. We’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospitals, the food banks, the LGBTQ community shelters and all of them just don’t give a s***.”
“I’ve asked all my friends and family for help and everyone just sends us to the direction of shelters, where they know we’ll be split up. We will have to split up if we go to any kind of government facilities. And no-one on my Facebook is going to listen to me, and now no-one is responding to my phone calls.”
“We don’t know what to do at this point. We just want to let people know what’s going on because at this point it seems ridiculous that no one can help. I don’t understand.”

They also note that police officials, food banks, hospitals and LGBT community shelters have been unable to assist them. Ng is Chan’s daughter with former Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng, with whom the actor had a relationship with while married to his current wife Joan Lin. The actor has not spoken publicly about his daughter but has acknowledged he had an affair.
The relationship between Ng and her mother has broken ever since Ng dropped out of school and moved in with her girlfriend after coming out as a lesbian in recent years, the news site Coconuts Hong Kong reported.
Elaine denied all the claims made by her daughter and said:
“I feel that if they have no money, they should go find work. They shouldn’t film a clip telling others they are broke and who Etta’s father is. People all over the world work hard and don’t rely on someone else’s fame to get money.”
