"We pretty much slept under a bridge and other things"
Jackie Chan’s daughter Etta Ng has claimed she and her girlfriend are now homeless due to their “homophobic parents”.
According to The Straits Times, Etta Ng, the daughter of Hong Kong movie star Jackie Chan and Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng, is now homeless. In a video on YouTube, the 18-year-old and her girlfriend Andi Autumn, 30, said they have been homeless for a month, citing their “homophobic parents” as a reason.
“Hi, I’m Jackie Chan’s daughter, and this is my girlfriend Andi,” Ng says. “We’ve been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents. We pretty much slept under a bridge and other things.”
Autumn added, “I’ve asked all my friends for help, and I’ve asked all my family for help and everyone just keeps sending us to the direction of shelters where they know we will be split up. We will be split up if we have to go to any kind of government facilities and no one on my Facebook is going to listen to me and now no one is responding to my phone calls.”
Ng said the couple had gone to the police, food banks, hospitals and LGBT community shelters but “all of them just don’t give a shit”.
Last year, Ng came out as gay in a post on Instagram that read, “In case no one got the memo, I’m gay.”
At the time, Autumn revealed the couple had suffered from discrimination. “We’ve encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends and the Hong Kong society…But none of it matters when I know every morning [you’re] going to be next to me,” she wrote.
