We're not so sure how to feel about this...
Hopefully they can get through this together.
Jackie Chan recently opened up about his son Jaycee Chan's arrest and detention in Beijing, China, last Thursday on drug charges. The action star expressed how he was "ashamed" and "heartbroken" when he heard the news.
The 31-year-old son was arrested along with his friend and Taiwanese actor Kai Ko in a VERY public arrest that happened after police found about 3.53 ounces of marijuana in Jaycee's home.
His father Jackie wrote a letter to the public on his official website that addressed everything that happened to his son and family.
Here's what he wrote in the letter:
Uh oh, this isn't good news for Jackie Chan.
The international actor has spent years campaigning against drugs and now his son is being charged with drug-related offenses after being arrested in a Beijing drug bust.
Over the weekend, the actor's son Jaycee Chan and Taiwanese actor Kai Ko were both detained after being tested positive for marijuana.
There's about to be a Die Hard vs. Rocky cage match…in the Twitterverse!
Sylvesty explained his ALL CAPS excitement, Tuesday, in a series of tweets:
Jackie Chan recently attended an event at a hospital in China.
He was there supporting the EEG x Orbis Flying Eye Hospital event in Hong Kong.
Orbis is a non-profit that works all over the world to help resort sight to those blinded by disease, poor healthcare and poverty.
The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital is literally a flying hospital.
Jackie Chan is probably the nicest action star ever.
The actor raised $3.3 million for Japan relief efforts this past Friday during his fund-raising concert, Artiste 311 Love Beyond Borders, in Hong Kong.
He put in calls across the Asian entertainment industry to wrangle in other charitable musicians and actors to host the show.
Even his good friend Lionel Richie appeared via a satellite feed in Australia to sing a rendition of his Say You, Say Me.
Jackie put together the show in just 11 days and says the most difficult part wasn't getting people to come, but having too many performers show up! He explained in a recent interview:
“The production team consists of fewer than 40 people, but 300 performers showed up. Almost everyone from Japan that we asked agreed to come over. But then we had to ask ourselves, what role could they play? What should they perform? Because, you know, every guest means a plane ticket, a hotel room, each for the guest and their assistants.”
The actor wasn't afraid to dig into his own pocket for the event and paid $643,000 to fly in and house all of the performers. "The worst thing would be to ask others to give but not give yourself,” he said.
The 56-year-old international star is completely aware of how much money he makes and because of that, he's not worried about giving so much of it out, explaining:
“My goal is to have a $0 in my bank account the day I die. I get very happy when I think about that, no more worries. I buy the things I like, I give money to charity, and then I try to make more money. I’ll be frank with you: It’s not difficult for me to make money. If it’s easy, why shouldn’t I give it away?”
Right on, Jackie! You're an inspiration and we wish there were more celebrities out there with your kind heart!
