Jackie Chan, the beloved movie star renowned for his martial arts skills displayed in his films, found himself at the center of a viral video that touched the hearts of many. The clip featured Jackie Chan alongside a woman who was initially assumed to be his daughter, as they watched old footage of his daring stunts together. The emotional moment between them resonated with viewers, who embraced the apparent father-daughter bond.
However, the truth behind the heartwarming scene has now come to light, revealing a shocking revelation. Contrary to popular belief, the woman in the video is not Jackie Chan’s daughter but actress Liu Haocun. The scene was actually a part of his recent movie, “Ride On.” In reality, Jackie Chan is estranged from his daughter, Etta Ng Chok Lam.
Etta, who publicly spoke out about her relationship with her father, claims that he has abandoned her. The alleged reason behind their estrangement revolves around Etta’s sexuality, as she identifies as a lesbian. Etta also shared that she faced hardships, including periods of homelessness, while her father’s net worth reached millions. Jackie Chan fathered Etta in 1999 during an extramarital affair with beauty pageant queen Elaine Ng Yi-lei, despite being married to his wife Joan Lin since 1982.
Acknowledging his transgressions, Jackie Chan admitted, “I’m not a saint. I’ve done something wrong. I’ve done something that many men in the world have done. Maybe it was a moment of playfulness.”
Adding to the complexity of the situation, Etta accused her father of harboring homophobic views, which allegedly contribute to his refusal to maintain a relationship with her. When the video clip went viral, falsely depicting Jackie Chan and Liu Haocun as father and daughter, it sparked widespread outrage as the truth behind their relationship was unveiled.
Jackie Chan himself has not addressed Etta’s allegations or commented on the mistaken assumption surrounding the viral video. The most recent accusations from Etta surfaced in 2018, and Jackie Chan has remained silent on both her allegations and the viral clip that garnered him considerable goodwill among viewers.
