Elaine Ng Receives Daughter’s Apology Letter
Currently being investigated by the police for abusing her 15-year-old daughter Etta Ng (吳卓林), Elaine Ng (吳綺莉) has not seen Etta for five days.
Elaine’s alcoholism and her subsequent physical skirmishes with Etta led school staff to call the police. Elaine was arrested by the police on March 11 and released on bail. Due to the ongoing investigation and concern over Etta’s well-being, she is temporarily removed from Elaine’s care.
Worried and restless due to lack of contact with her daughter, Elaine apologized to Etta openly for her parenting mistakes but denied child abuse. The single mother promised to drink less alcohol, “Mommy will take care of her own health.”
After hospitalized for injury examination, Etta will be staying with her godmother for the time being.
Speaking with the media yesterday, Elaine revealed Etta has written a letter to her. “She said sorry and that she just wants me to be happy. I understand that she has accumulated a lot of stress.”
In regards to allegations that Elaine had made harsh comments to Etta, causing her to feel unhappy, Elaine responded, “She did something bad that time and I was really tired after work…. I usually don’t talk to her like that, nor would I ever hit her on the face, because that’s disrespectful.”
Etta reportedly also has very few friends and often pretends to be happy and positive at home, hoping to avoid adding to her mother’s burdens. However, suicidal thoughts have crossed Etta’s mind. Elaine was bewildered to find out about her daughter’s true feelings after the recent turn of events.
Asked if she feels any guilt towards her daughter, Elaine said, “I made a mistake. I told her, ‘No matter what happens, until the day I am no longer around, you don’t need to worry. I have already planned everything for you.’ Maybe that scared her and made her feel insecure.”
Elaine further stressed that the situation is not as serious as reported in the media and she has no plans to stop working.
Did Not Receive Millions from Jackie Chan
Elaine conceived Etta after having an affair with Jackie Chan (成龍) in 1999. Tabloids claimed that Jackie had given Elaine $30 million HKD in “breakup fees”, stipulating the requirement for Elaine and Etta to move to Shanghai and far away from Jackie’s wife Joan Lin (林鳳嬌).
“Since I was a child, I never liked to explain myself. I was not the only person who made mistakes. I’m not perfect, so I can’t comment on others,” said Elaine.
When asked if she was the only person who took care of Etta in the past 15 years, Elaine said, “If I didn’t take care of her, who else would do so?” Elaine added that while she also yearns to find a significant other, she has not dated due to work and time needed to take care of her daughter.
