Jackie Chan's daughter Etta Ng and her wife kicked out of a hostel for offering $2.56 as payment for a $287 bill
The pair decided to get married in Canada last month and recently returned to Hong Kong in the hope of starting a creative agency.
The estranged daughter of martial arts star Jackie Chan, Etta Ng and her Canadian wife Andi Autumn were reportedly kicked out of a hostel in Hong Kong after they could not afford the bill. 19-year-old Etta Ng and 31-year-old Andi Autumn racked up a bill for around HK$2,250 ($287.65) for a five-night stay at a hostel in Hong Kong. However, the pair were only able to cough up HK$20 ($2.56) as payment. The hostel manager was unaware of Etta's identity and told the reporters that the two women had said they were models and $2.56 was the only money they had.
According to Apple Daily, the manager surnamed Lau, attempted to collect the payment from the two women many times but eventually resorted to contacting the hostel owner on December 9. The owner surnamed Ho immediately recognized Etta and urged her to make the payment but when the women said that they didn't have cash, Ho contacted the authorities. The pair then asked Etta's mother, Elaine, for help. Etta's mother's affair with Jackie Chan had made headlines in 1999 given that he was married to Taiwanese actress Joan Lin at the time.
The manager also shared that Etta and Autumn littered the room and left many takeout boxes and garbage. While they stayed at the hostel, they did not allow any staff member inside their room. The pair would only emerge from their room at around 4 pm or 5 pm to get food. Etta's mother former Miss Asia Elaine Ng was later seen driving to an ATM to get the cash.
Autumn, who is an internet celebrity, married Etta in Canada last month and the couple recently decided to return to HongKong with the hope of setting up a creative agency.
Etta took to Instagram to share, "There is nothing greater than true love found," when she announced the news of the wedding. The couple also shared videos and photos of them embracing before signing their marriage certificate.

In a previous interview with Apple Daily, Etta shared that she does not really know who her father is and that her last name was never Chan. "If I don't really know someone, I can't judge them. I know when I was young, I would have said some impulsive things, but now I'm a bit more level-headed."
Before their marriage the pair had posted a video on YouTube claiming they had run out of options as their friends and family have refused to support them. “We’ve been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents. We pretty much slept under a bridge, and other things,” Etta said in the video. “We’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospitals, the food banks, the LGBTQ community shelters and all of them just don’t give a s—"
