Jackie Chan’s Illegitimate Daughter Comes Out as a Lesbian

Etta Ng, the estranged daughter of martial artist and “Rush Hour” star Jackie Chan and Chinese beauty queen Elaine Ng Yi-Lei, says she’s an out and proud lesbian.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the 17-year-old posted a photo of herself posing in front of a rainbow background, and included the hashtags #lgbtqai, #lgbt, #lesbian, and #androgynous.

In a follow-up post on Friday, Ng said she was in “awe” of the love and support she has received.

I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I’ve grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. ❤️ 我對於大家的支持和愛感到十分驚喜與感激。你們在我和我女朋友 @andiautumn 的instagram户口留下的正能量實在令我感恩。多謝來自世界各地的你們給我的祝福,令我感到恩惠,當香港傳媒不斷去評論我的生活時,令我感受到無比的壓力。我從小在一個佈滿負面和封閉的環境下長大,但是隨著社會進步,我希望能夠利用我的故事來説出真相從而幫助其他和我處境一樣的人。我曾經對於世界和未來感到非常無助和迷惘,但慶幸身邊一直有不同的人去支持和鼓勵我,令我想通了,成長了。最後我想再次多謝大家的關懷和接受。❤️ #lgbt #androgynous #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovewins #lovealwayswins #lesbian #love #support # #androgynous #queer #gay #gaygram #loveyourself #advocacy

Hong Kong-based Canadian social media star Andi Autumn, 30, also revealed in an Instagram post that she and Ng are officially dating, and gave the teenager her full support.

“I’ve never met anyone like @stolenmilktea . She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head. No judgements, just understanding. Everything was against us. We’ve been pushed down again and again but its worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side,” Andi wrote.

“We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off. But none of it matters when I know every morning your going to be next to me. I love you,” she went on.

We’ve been pushed down again and again but its worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side. skip past all of the difficulties we’ve had this year, we are finally heading in the right direction, we have a path. We’ve encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends, and the Hong Kong society. We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off. But none of it matters when I know every morning your going to be next to me. I love you.

Andi also thanked her Instagram followers for their “kind words,” adding that “it’s honestly giving us more energy to fight for what’s right.”

According to Taiwan News, Ng considers Chan a stranger and said in 2015 that she was “far from forgiving him after all these years,” referring to her father’s affair with Elaine while Chan was married to Joan Lin Feng-jiao.

While Chan has yet to publicly acknowledge his daughter, the martial artist did “come out” in support of the LGBT community “as an ally of equality” in an advertisement for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation back in 2013. It has yet to be determined if his support is related to Ng’s sexual orientation.
