Etta Ng, the out 18-year-old daughter of film star Jackie Chan, says she is currently homeless because of her unaccepting, homophobic parents.
In October of 2017, Ng came out in a celebratory Instagram post. She’s said previously she doesn’t think of Chan as her father since he wasn’t around during her childhood, but now she’s alleging “homophobic parents” have made her and her 30-year-old girlfriend, Andi Autumn, homeless for the last month.
“We’ve been homeless for a month, due to homophobic parents,” Ng says in the video. “We’ve pretty much slept other a bridge and other things. I don’t even understand what is going on because we’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospital, the food banks, LGBTQ community shelters, and all of them just don’t give a shit.” The couple is seeking help. “So that’s why we’re making this video, because we don’t know what to do at this point.”
Adding another layer of oddity, Ng was declared missing in February by her mother Elaine. Ng and her Autumn have been living in Canada, though Etta has not been seen at work or school for some time.
Elaine, who had Etta after an affair with Chan in 1998, says her daughter has “emotional problems.”
Elaine is critical of Etta’s video: “They shouldn’t film a clip telling others they are broke and who Etta’s father is,” she said. “People all over the world work hard and don’t rely on someone else’s fame to get money.”
“If they don’t have work, then they’ll film these videos to complain about their parents? How many of these videos would we see in a day then?” she added.
Apparently, the couple was last seen a few days ago at a service station. Etta reportedly said to the cashier: “I want to find my dad.”
