Jackie Chan Too Busy to Attend Jaycee Chan’s Court Hearing on January 9

Since Jaycee Chan (房祖名) was arrested by Beijing authorities for marijuana possession in August, he has be jailed in China. Possessing more than 100 grams of illegal drugs at his home in Beijing, Jaycee has been charged for drug consumption and drug trafficking offenses. Jaycee spent 148 days in remand and was not allowed any visitors. Jaycee’s court hearing will held on January 9, but his parents Jackie Chan (成龍) and Joan Lin (林鳳嬌) may not be able to attend due to the short notice.

Spending his 32nd birthday, Christmas, and New Year in the prison, Jaycee has reportedly made good use of his time in solitude by reading 100 books while in jail.

Upon conviction, Jaycee is likely to face a prison or a probationary sentence of up to three years. This would be set off against the amount of time Jaycee spent in remand. He would also have the opportunity to appeal against his sentence.

Although Jackie Chan and his wife Joan Lin have not seen Jaycee for nearly five months since he was detained by Beijing authorities, the couple may not attend Jaycee’s court hearing on January 9. While Jackie will be in Beijing, he would not be able to get away from his work commitments. It would also be inconvenient for Joan to travel from overseas to attend the hearing.

Jackie’s good friend, Eric Tsang (曾志偉), expressed his sympathies for the couple and emphasized that Joan misses Jaycee very much, “She writes him a letter every day, waiting for him to read the letters when he gets out of jail. I also heard from Jackie that Jaycee has been reading a lot of books while in jail. I hope he can learn from this experience and value his life more.”

Jaycee’s manager stated that a representative from the management company would be attending the court hearing. Asked how Jaycee is feeling at the moment, his manager said, “I don’t know. I will have to find out from his lawyer.”

          No surprise really. It’s the same excuse he gave whilst Jaycee was growing up.

        Support? Guy is 32, he isn’t a kid. Knowingly provides drugs in his household, even though China is strict as hell with drug offences- what kind of ‘sympathy’ does he deserve?

        This is sad. Surely they have a valid HK ID card or passport so they do not need a VISA to go to China ASAP. Or they can book a private jet?

        Is any of his friends going to support him at the hearing then? I know that what Jaycee did is wrong and his parents can be angry at him. But the crime is not that bad to be abandoned by his own parents!

        • what? replied:

          Jackie has a private jet bought in early 2010. What not make use of it for Joan Lin?

          Sounds like the writer is amateurish, simply write without reasoning to say it is inconvenient becausue she is overseas. HK is not overseas, and that is where Jackie and Jaycee are based.

      Why are people making Jaycee the victim?…the guy is a grown man who committed a crime…his parents should disown him…that’s the Chinese way…not like in North America where parents stick up for their kids even after their offsprings commit acts of rape or murder.

      • Mt replied:

        He smoked pot…that’s not murder or rape. It’s just pot. The only thing Jaycee did wrong was smoke and possess pot in China. Marijuana is legal in the Netherlands but many locals don’t actually use it, just foreigners. Countries should take a page from the Netherlands where people are free to make their own choices…not like in China where the government stick people in prison for marijuana possession and parents leave their kids to rot in prison because of their fear of losing face. The Chinese way sucks!

          several countries in Asia are very strict about marijuana laws. freedom to be a pothead or druggie is not an option in Asia.

          I would not make light of pot use. Many families and lives have been hurt by it. You do realize the Dutch have cracked down on places that allow drug activites right? China’s population and demorgraphics are very different so you cannot simply just say because they allow it in Holland than it should be allowed in China as well. Turning a blind eye to narcotics would have a very different consequence in a country where there is a billion+ people. As well, who says just becuase its allowed in Holland or other places than that make its the right decision? China does not allow child brides…but using your logic since there might be other countries that condone this custom than China should adopt that practise as well…does that make sense? Of course not.
          BTW, Jaycee is in trouble not just for smoking and possessing pot. If it was that simple he would have been out like his other buddy who got caught at the same time…Jaycee’s home was a drug den for many asian celebrities…eventhough he might not have sold the drugs but being a distributer is the same as trafficking. He is in big doodoo.

          IF you know the social scene of the very wealthy young nouveau riche kids in China these days … some of the bored ones have turned to drug parties.

          A scary cocktail of alcohol and drug parties … very hip, trendy wealthy young high school kids from China, with easy money at their disposal and very busy parents.

          You can always tell a wealthy China FOB by the MCM backpacks they all like to carry – whether they’re in Asia snapping up LVs in Singapore and sitting in food courts slurping their bubble teas, or in Asian-dominated NAmerican cities.

          Their busy parents don’t know what to do with them, so they break them apart groups of drugs + booze party friends in China by sending them out seperately to different pockets of the West.

          They have no trouble getting new partying friends in the West (Asian and Western) – these are the well-educated international school crowd, on top keeping in touch with their old China crowd via FB or other social media … they all catch up and meet in homebase China during vacations anyway.

          Many of these problem kids (it starts small Ecstasy and booze in China) with more money than sense are the the upscale areas of the Cdn city I live in.

      We enjoy making assumptions based on a few news reports. Whatever happened before the incident till the current time and everything in between, we have no idea.
      I suppose those who go through the situation will try to handle the matter as best as they can. And along an incident like this comes a lot of emotions – for both the parents and child. Maybe one day, we will face something similar.
      For now, each individual is responsible for their own decisions and choice in life. Why point a finger?

      argh, i can’t help it. i feel really sorry for him. he grew up without his dad’s positive influence and now he’s left to his own devices when he needs support most. i am against drugs of all kind but i have plenty of friends who are occasional cannabis users and i would be horrified if they were arrested and charged for it. i think he has learned quite a huge lesson. his career is ruined and his dad all but abandoned him. i hope he gets a break.

      It is sad that Jaycee’s parents can’t make it. Even when Nic Tse got into trouble many years ago with driving violations his famous womanising dad stood by him and physically shielded his son from the press during court cases.

      I wonder how the time is inconvenient for the parents. They can’t even try to show up for lame reasons. Any wonder why they never knew what he was up to. No wonder they are so screwed up. Nahhh real reason is to avoid publicity. If my beloved son who I haven’t seen for so many months is now on trial and I supposedly so miss him I would have travelled non stop even rent own jet to get there. I expected the father to fail but never expected so do the mom. All of a sudden I pity jaycee for being totally abandoned .

      Nevermind the dad, he’s never been involved anyway.

      But I am trying to think why the worried mom Joan Lin will also not appear. Does she defer to her husband’s wishes so much or is she actually the ironwoman who gave the word no one should appear?

      Maybe, just maybe … a couple of possibilities:
      (1) Mom is no longer movie-star material, nor did she try to be. She has kept out of the limelight and not been photographed for years.

      (2) They are NOT appearing so as to hype up the event.

      Otherwise, there’s really no understanding why they’d not support their one and only son through this difficult time. He’s been isolated all these months (6?), it would be very comforting to see encouraging support and familiar faces, even if they can have no contact.

    16. Ames says:

      Well and he wonders why his son is the way he is?
      First look at the parents, Jackie was always an absent father, and Joan is probably spent most of Jaycee life trying to be the mother and the father to him, and remember she has spent most of her married life alone, and not really having any physical support from Jackie, if she did attend, the media will just make things difficult for her to attend, it would be different if they both attended together, but then I doubt if Jaycee will be surprised his father wont be there, its not as if he has any choice in the matter and if this event is not enough to make his father wake up that he needs to change to help his only son, then I doubt anything will.
      Jackie just does not know how lucky he is to have a committed wife and a son who had a great life ahead of him, so many people would love that life, if he wont cherish what’s in front of him now, he will never cherish them in the future.
      Sad excuse of a husband and father. Feel sorry for Joan and Jaycee.

      Why are people here blaming the parents? Jaycee is a grown adult who happened to commit a crime. I’m glad he can’t use his dad’s popularity to get bailed, and I’m glad Jackie leaves him be (and it’s not like Jackie didn’t visit him before either).

      Hopefully this will be a huge lesson for Jaycee.

      This is not about owning up on what he has done, but having some moral support from his parents is what matters most to him. Doesn’t matter how old one is, every parents still cares about their children well being.

      Now that he is sentenced to 6 months’ jail I’m interested on what Jackie has to say about the sentencing. And I hope Jaycee will really grow up after this incident.

      why are you guys freaking out about Jackie not attending Jaycee’s court hearing? Like what should you worry about? Papa Chan saved Jaycee. No matter how immature or bad Jaycee is, he will always be Jackie’s son. No matter what Jackie says in public(not giving his son his fortune etc..) , Jaycee is still his son. Yes, he may not spend time with Jaycee when he needed him the most but hey, he gave him a great and rich lufestyle aint it? And please, no one would give all his money to some people he doesnt even kniw instead of his own children. Like lol.
