Jackie Chan's Estranged Daughter Says She's Homeless Due to Homophobia
She posted a vlog claiming that her and her girlfriend have been sleeping under a bridge somewhere in Canada since fleeing China
Published Apr 30, 2018Jackie Chan's estranged daughter Etta Ng Chok Lam claims she's homeless somewhere in Canada due to the extreme homophobia she's faced from her family.
Lam shared a video post with her girlfriend, Andi Autumn, where they explained that they've been living on the streets after Lam's family rejected her.
In the video, which can be viewed below, Lam says,"Hi, I'm Jackie Chan's daughter, Etta, and this is my girlfriend, Andi.... We've been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents. We've pretty much slept under a bridge and other things."
"We've gone to the police, the hospital, food banks, LGBT community, shelters, and all of them just don't give a shit," she added. "So that's why we're making this video. We don't know what to do at this point."
Lam is the daughter of Chan and beauty queen Elaine Ng. When Lam fled China, Ng had filed a missing persons report. Now, Hong Kong website Coconuts explains that Ng called the video "wrong."
"I feel that if they have no money, they should go find work," Ng said. "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."
