HONG KONG • Jackie Chan's daughter Etta Ng has come out as gay.

In an Instagram post on her account on Thursday, she captioned a picture of herself against a rainbow background with the words: "In case no one got the memo, I'm gay."

She has since removed that caption and replaced it with several hashtags - #lgbtqai, #lgbt, #lesbian and #androgynous.

She is the love child of Chan and former Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng.

Chan also has a son, actor Jaycee, 34, with his wife, former actress Lin Feng-jiao.

Etta, 17, has reportedly been living with social media influencer Andi Autumn.

On Thursday, Autumn shared a photo of herself on Instagram next to Ng, with the caption: "I've never met anyone like @stolenmilktea. She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head. No judgments, just understanding.

"Everything was against us... but we will get through together, side by side... 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."
