Hollywood has called Jackie Chan the dragon for his phenomenally popular flicks that have made him a household name and popular with the general population. In addition to being a talented actor, Chan is also a well-known director, a proficient martial artist, and a man who can perform his own stunts. At one time in his career, he was regarded as one of the industry’s top stars and one of the highest-paid actors worldwide.
Jackie Chan achieved all of his goals while working in Hollywood, including fame, wealth, power, and respect. He also gained the people’s esteem by providing conscientious service to the neighborhood. But despite being such a successful movie star and a businessman and having millions of dollars against his name, Chan could not stand his lesbian daughter and went ahead to disown her.
Jackie Chan Disowned His Lesbian Daughter
For a very long period, Jackie Chan’s career was at its height, and audiences flocked to see films like Rush Hour and New Police Story. Chan completely won over the crowd, and many people were impressed by his unique acting approach. Additionally, as he gained popularity and major roles, his inability to speak English well in the movies attracted a lot of attention. With a staggering net worth of $400 million and several enterprises across the world, he is one of the most successful out there. But despite being so successful, he just turned a blind eye to his lesbian daughter.
“We’ve been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents. We pretty much slept under a bridge, and other things. We’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospitals, the food banks, the LGBTQ community shelters and all of them just don’t give a shit”
Etta Ng Chok Lam, the estranged daughter of Jackie Chan revealed in a video that she was thrown out of her own home because of her sexuality because she was a lesbian. It is a confirmed fact that Jackie Chan has never tried to make contact with her or has ever looked for her. Many may say that it was due to his influence that she was pushed out of her home, but Chan being the reason behind her homelessness may not be all back and white.
Jackie Chan’s Potential Return With Rush Hour 4?
Fans are excited and concerned about the idea of Rush Hour 4 being a reality due to the harsh response to the series’ final episode. The announcement regarding the fourth installment was taken positively by the whole world, but a 16 years gap between the releases may worry some lovers of the franchise. Whatever the case, it’s enjoyable to see these two incredibly funny actors, Chan and Tucker indulge in wild activities on camera. But apart from the announcement of a fourth movie, no additional developments about the film, and neither a release date nor any such leaks have been made public.
