Jackie Chan’s daughter Etta Ng claims being homeless due to homophobic parents, shares video


Action superstar Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter Etta Ng took to YouTube to talk about her homelessness and blamed her parents for it. She claims she has been homeless for a month and is living on the streets of Hong Kong. Along with her girlfriend she posted a video in which she claimed that she has been living under a bridge, and blamed her ‘homophobic parents’ for the situation.

18-year-old Etta is the daughter of Jackie Chan and her mother is former Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng, 45, who admitted to having an affair with Chan and gave birth to Etta in 1999. 64-year-old Chan later married to Joan Lin, 64, since 1982. Lin is a Taiwanese actress.

The video was uploaded on YouTube on April 24, 2018. In it, Ng addresses viewers with her girlfriend, social media influencer Andi Autumn and says, “Hi, I'm Jackie Chan's daughter, and this is my girlfriend Andi. 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***.” 30-year-old Autumn added, “Yeah. I've asked all my friends for help, and I've asked all my family for help and everyone just keeps sending us to the direction of shelters where they know we will be split up. We will be split up if we have to 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."


The video drew a fair share of strong words from users, who asked them to get a job to overcome their plight. Ng had come out as a lesbian last year in October. Over a domestic dispute in March last year, she had called the police and her mother was arrested on suspicion of criminal intimidation. Ng was hospitalized in June last year for emotional instability. She started living with her girlfriend Autumn, a Canadian based in Hong Kong soon after getting released from the hospital.


Reportedly Autumn designs and sells clothes online and is known for her Barbie-doll like get-ups. Chan has never spoken publicly about his daughter but had acknowledged the affair with Elaine Ng. Elaine, on the other hand while talking to a website Coconuts, denounced her daughter’s claims 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.”


Ng had previously said that Chan has "never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father." Jackie Chan has a son named Jaycee who is also an actor with his wife Joan Lin.
