    I’ve met you before Held your hand Kissed your cheek Called you my love but never a name Seldom a face . . Dejavu my love I’ve looked into these eyes before Spent a lifetime in the plays of my mind . . I’ve built a home Got over what was never expected so I was told . . I’ve held these hands before Never knew hands were meant to hold Till mine were held . . Then I knew . . I’ve met you before I’ve held your hand kissed your cheek Called you my love but never a name Seldom a face . . But things have changed Good riddance to pain Now a love that calls my name . . Dejavu my love When I kissed you goodnight I’ve seen these eyes Like sunshine A flashing sign . . I’m home, no ghosts.

    Ng is Chan’s only child with former beauty queen Elaine Ng Yi Lei after their affair in 1999. It has been reported that Ng’s relationship with her parents, including with her mother who raised her, had been in turmoil in recent years.

    Ng moved to Canada shortly after she began dating the Canadian social media personality in late 2017.

    The couple made international headlines in April after posting a YouTube video in which they made a public plea for help, claiming that they have been homeless for a month “due to homophobic parents.”

    In response, Ng’s mother advised the couple to “go find work” and not rely on her father’s fame to get money.

    In the past, Ng has described her father as “just a stranger” and that “he is just my biological father.”

    Chan, who rarely acknowledged his daughter, admitted that he did not leave his daughter with anything in his will and has yet to see her in person.
