Hong Kong actress and former beauty queen Elaine Ng Yi-lei is the mother of 22-year-old Etta Ng Chok Lam who was born out of wedlock in 1999 due to an affair with action star Jackie Chan. Jackie has been married to Taiwanese actress wife Joan Lin Fengjiao since 1982. Their son is singer-actor Jaycee Chan. When the scandal blew up back then, Jackie made a public apology. He admitted, “I was wrong. I committed a wrongdoing that many men in the world commit.”
Elaine Ng Apologizes for Mistake and Says The Child is Innocent
On May 22, Elaine Ng took to social media with another apology and a message that seems directed at Jackie Chan. She writes, “The child is innocent, I am responsible for my wilfulness, the child is not a mistake, never subjected to corporal punishment, everyone has a bottom line, it’s right to say I have ambitions, yes, I have requirements. Deng Xiaoping’s wife is the respectable wife of the head of state in our Chinese history, no one said that being a dancer is not good, but I never thought of trying to surpass a dancer 🙏🏻 A dancer is also a good job, but what parent doesn’t want their children to be respected ? Every so often, saying how much money was accepted, then in four days half a month saying not one cent will be given to you. Actually, everyone can understand after saying it just once or twice. No need to say it for more than 20 years, the damage to the child is too great. Can you stop! To everyone, I’m sorry, I was wrong. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 The child is already very hurt. 🙏🏻 I have been wrong for more than 20 years, but this is the bottom line, please stop hurting an innocent child. 🙏🏻”
When a netizen commented that the person who didn’t take responsibility is in the wrong, Elaine’s reply was seemingly directed at Jackie Chan when she said, “Hope that a certain superstar when doing any more publicity will no longer belittle me and my child for publicity, it’s too hurtful to the child.”
Explaining Etta Ng’s Name “Chok-Lam”
In 2018, Jackie’s estranged daughter Etta Ng made headlines after going on video with then girlfriend Canadian influencer Andi Autumn whom she later married to cry out for help on being homeless. Since her birth, some have interpreted Etta’s name Chok-Lam or Zhuo Lin in Mandarin (吴卓林) to mean surpassing Lin aka Jackie’s wife Joan Lin. Elaine’s manager Ah Wen previously explained that he once asked Elaine about Etta’s name when they were having a meal. He says, “she just thought the name of a certain leader’s wife was very nice, so she chose a name that sounds like Zhuolin.” He also added that it certainly wasn’t to replace or surpass so-and-so. Now that Elaine has mentioned Deng Xiaoping in her recent post, it appears she may be referring to his third wife Zhuo Lin (卓琳).

Jackie Chan is a hypocrite and really a scumbag towards his own daughter. The fault of the parents should not be subjected to their kids. It takes 2 to clap, Elaine is not the only person in the wrong in their relationship. I have absolutely no respect for this ‘mega star’.
Can’t agree with you more on this fake guy. I stopped watching any of his works for years now.

I know. It really irritates me that he’s still respected in the industry and even had a kids cartoon. Of all people, I don’t think he should have a kid’s cartoon when he doesn’t even take care of all of his own kids! Maybe Elaine was a gold digger (I don’t know), but Etta was undoubtedly innocent in their mess. I know these are his personal actions, and I wouldn’t have held it against him if he owned up to it and became a responsible father figure. Instead he doubled down and treated them like trash. I never cared for him and felt his stunts were quite repetitive, but he came off as a happy go lucky nice guy, which was all fake.
He can’t deny that she is not his child because she looks so much like him. With all the money he has and he is not even helping her. How about pay for her education; so she can survive on her own? This guy has no heart.

Etta is definitely a very lost child who is trying to find her sense of belonging and love…I really feel for her…Elaine may not be a great mum but she did try her limited best for Etta… Jackie is a scumbag.
Jackie Chan is a scumbag, it takes two to tango and he is nasty for not admitting that this girl is his child. Well, she doesn’t need an awful person to be her father I guess. Awful personality.
Both the same … she knew he got a wife … WHY still want a relationship with him and a baby too ? Don’t tell me if it wasn’t because she want to climb a higher branch with an easy way . Joan Lin is the one that hurt most …
@jenny chew like Elaine said it was her fault, she had said her sorry, but it’s the press and JC that won’t let go. Seriously with all his money, he could either buy the press or have lawyers to make sure he doesn’t need to comment at all about this matter. But the fact that he kept denying Etta’s existence in public that scarred that child. If he had stayed quiet, no denying, no admitting, just say no comment, at least Etta isn’t a joke to the world. But with him keep going on about how he never has a daughter, it’s pretty damaging. And because of that, he’s a pretty crappy person.
The fault of the parents should not be on the child, yet Etta is the one that received the crappy end of it. I do hope she manage to move on and find purpose in her life
JC is a dirty scumbag but he is a very rich and famous one so that’s why women go to him. I’ve being following stories about them along many years through another site and I know these two do love the fame and money that comes with each story, they earn their lives through other paths using JC’s name so that’s not too bad. JC’s name open doors for them.
