Etta Ng, Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter, is claiming she and her girlfriend Andi Autumn are homeless due to homophobia.
Ng, 18, and Autumn, 30, recorded an almost two-minute video explaining their situation.
“We had to read off of a paper due to PTSD and being extremely flustered about the whole situation. please understand. Please repost and share so that people who do care about us know what is happening,” the video description reads.
“We’ve been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents,” Ng says in the video. “We pretty much slept under a bridge, and other things.”
Autumn says she and Ng can’t go to shelters because they fear they will be split up. Ng adds that she and Autumn have also asked for help from police, food banks and LGBT centers.
“We don’t know what to do at this point,” Ng continued. “We just want to let people know what’s going on because at this point it seems ridiculous that no one can help. I don’t understand.”
Ng, who is the daughter of Chan and Chinese actress Elaine Ng, came out as a lesbian on Instagram last October. She has stated in the past that she does not have a relationship with Chan and doesn’t consider him her father.
