Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter officially came out as lesbian last week on Instagram.

17-year-old Etta Ng came out on the social media site by posting a photo of herself in front of a rainbow background with an emoji of a rainbow and the hashtags ‘#lgbtqai’, ‘#lgbt’, ‘#lesbian’ and ‘#androgynous’.

Meanwhile, 30-year-old social media influencer Andi Autumn took to Instagram to confirm that the pair were dating.

In Andi’s post, she wrote: “I’ve never met anyone like @stolenmilktea. She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head. No judgements, just understanding. Everything was against us. We’ve been pushed down again and again but it’s worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side.

“Skip past all the difficulties we’ve had this year, we are finally heading in the right direction, we have a path. We’ve encountered a lot of discrimination from family, friends, and the Hong Kong society.

“We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off. But none of it matters when I know every morning you’re going to be next to me. I love you.”

Etta, who was born following Jackie Chan’s affair with former Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng, returned to Instagram several days later, stating she’s in “awe” at the amount of support and love she’s received since coming out.

In the post, Etta wrote: “I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my girlfriend Andi Autumn and my account to show us both so much positivity.

“People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me.”

I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I’ve grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. ❤️ 我對於大家的支持和愛感到十分驚喜與感激。你們在我和我女朋友 @andiautumn 的instagram户口留下的正能量實在令我感恩。多謝來自世界各地的你們給我的祝福,令我感到恩惠,當香港傳媒不斷去評論我的生活時,令我感受到無比的壓力。我從小在一個佈滿負面和封閉的環境下長大,但是隨著社會進步,我希望能夠利用我的故事來説出真相從而幫助其他和我處境一樣的人。我曾經對於世界和未來感到非常無助和迷惘,但慶幸身邊一直有不同的人去支持和鼓勵我,令我想通了,成長了。最後我想再次多謝大家的關懷和接受。❤️ #lgbt #androgynous #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovewins #lovealwayswins #lesbian #love #support # #androgynous #queer #gay #gaygram #loveyourself #advocacy

She finished: “Thankfully I’ve grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance.”

According to People, Jackie Chan has not spoken publicly about his daughter but has acknowledged he had an affair.

Etta previously said that Chan has “never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father.”
