Popular martial arts experts, Jackie Chan’s estranged 17-year old daughter, Etta Ng has come out to publicly admit that she is a lesbian after she shared a photo of herself in front of a rainbow background, with hashtags: ‘#lgbtqai#lgbt#lesbian#androgynous’ in a post she shared on Instagram last week. Not only that, she also confirmed she is in a romantic relationship with 30-year-old social media influencer, Andi Autumn.
Etta disclosed afterwards that she was ‘speechless’ at how much support she received following her revelation after growing up with a lot of ‘negativity and close mindedness’ throughout her life.
Sharing the above photo, she wrote:
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.
Etta’s mother, Elaine Ng Yi-Lei, a former Miss Asia who had a brief affair with Jackie Chan in the late 90s.
In 2015, the teenager who lives in Hong Kong confirmed she is estranged from the movie star and doesn’t feel as though he is her father.
He is not my dad. I have no feelings for him. He is my biological father but he is not in my life. ‘He never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father. ‘I would not say that he is my dad. I would say, ‘Oh, Jackie Chan, an actor’.
