CLAIM: Jackie Chan and his daughter cry while viewing his old movies.
The video depicts a scene from the 2023 film “Ride On,” featuring Jackie Chan as the lead actor. In this scene, Chan’s character is a stuntman, and Liu Haocun portrays his estranged daughter. They are seen together in the video, sobbing while watching a compilation of Chan’s past movies.
An Instagram account, “Clips,” recently shared a video online that showcases a touching and emotional moment involving veteran actor and martial artist Jackie Chan and his biological “daughter.” The video describes the scene as a heartwarming experience that captures the nostalgic expression on Jackie Chan’s face as he watches footage of the challenging stunts he has performed throughout his career. His alleged daughter, overwhelmed by her father’s past accomplishments, can only watch in awe, asking him if he was in pain while doing the stunts. The two began crying, an action that many commentators tied to the actor’s long-strained relationship with his daughter, Etta Ng, who was born out of wedlock.
“Jackie Chan and his daughter crying while watching some of his old movie scenes is the most wholesome thing.”
Opposing views on the matter
One user, Chocolatelavender, commented that the scenario is every father’s goal to make their children proud, “That’s every dad’s goal before we’re gone, to be something y(our) child is proud of.”
However, another user, Coriandertree, argued that the lady in the video is not Jackie Chan’s daughter, “That’s not his daughter. In real life, his daughter and him don’t have a relationship,” he disagreed.
Jackie Chan, a renowned international actor and martial artist, has captivated audiences worldwide for decades with his impressive stunts and charismatic movie performances. He has become a household name in Nigeria, admired for his unique and captivating style. However, there have been controversies in the past regarding his relationship with his daughter. This claim has sparked ongoing discussions and speculations, prompting DUBAWA to investigate the matter further.
After a thorough analysis of the purported video, DUBAWA discovered that it bears a striking resemblance to a scene featured in the movie “Rush On.” Upon reviewing the movie, it became evident that the alleged video was, in fact, a scene from the film.
Furthermore, DUBAWA searched and discovered that the actress in question was not Etta Ng, Mr Chan’s biological daughter, but actress Liu Haocun.
DUBAWA also verified Mr Chan’s official Facebook and Instagram accounts to see if he had posted the video scene and publicly acknowledged a reunion with Etta, but no such posts were found. News outlets had also not reported any similar development.
Jackie Chan strained relationship with his daughter
Newspaper outlet Hollywood Life has reported that the rift between Mr Chan and his 23-year-old daughter, Etta, whom he had with 1990’s beauty queen Elaine Ng, continues. Hollywood Life quotes Etta as saying, “Mr Chan is not in my life, and I will never consider him my father.”
Yahoo also reiterates the strained relationship between the two, explaining that “Chan had never been there for her.”
Distractify reports on how, despite being married to his Taiwanese wife, Joan Lin, since 1982, Mr Chan had a sexual affair with Elaine Ng, an encounter the veteran actor himself described as “something wrong.”
The claim is misleading. The video is from the 2023 Rush On, and the actress in the scene is co-star Liu Haocun, not Mr Chan’s biological daughter. Moreover, the relationship between Mr Chan and his daughter remains strained, according to media reports.
