Elaine Ng Arrested for Alleged Child Abuse
Jackie Chan‘s ex-lover ( 成龍) 42-year-old Elaine Ng (吴绮莉) was arrested on March 11 for suspected child abuse.
Elaine gave birth to daughter Etta Ng (吳卓琳) in 1999 after having an affair with Jackie, who initially denied he was the father. Raising Etta as a single mother in Beijing, Elaine returned to Hong Kong three years ago to resume work as an actress.
School Calls Police
Etta had confided in school staff that she often witnessed her mother drinking alcohol at home. Concerned about Elaine’s well-being, Etta turned to her school teacher and social worker for help. Etta mentioned Elaine had hit her on the shoulders in their dispute.
The school reported the incident to the police due to concern over Etta’s safety. Etta does not have any observable injuries, but her case will be followed up by the Social Work Department.
Elaine Suspected of Marijuana Possession
During the investigation, police also found a small amount of what is suspected to be marijuana in Elaine’s home. The substance was sent to the laboratory for additional testing.
Released on bail yesterday, Elaine will need to report to the police station in May.
Elaine has resumed filming for a variety program at i-Cable. Speaking with colleagues, Elaine revealed that Etta was very concerned about her when the police arrived at their home. At the time, Etta told the police, “Mom did not hit me!” As the incident has escalated into a child abuse case, Elaine was initially upset at Etta but came to realize her daughter’s perspective.
