Jackie Chan to donate entire fortune to charity, leave his son nothing


Jackie Chan has revealed he is planning on donating his entire fortune to charity when he passes away and will leave nothing to his only son Jaycee. 

The Rush Hour star has already decided to give away half his money to charity when he dies and speaking at an awards ceremony last week he said that he was not planning on leaving his son Jaycee any of the millions of dollars he has made during his film career.

‘If he is capable, he can make his own money. If he is not, then he will just be wasting my money,’ Channel NewsAsia quote Chan as saying.

Chan also revealed that he wished he had signed Jaycee up to join the army when he was younger to ‘temper his character’.


Last week rumours circulated that Chan, 56, had died of a heart attack and ‘RIP Jackie Chan’ soon began trending on Twitter.

Chan was quick to dismiss the reports though and published a statement on his Facebook page assuring his fans he was alive and well.

Commenting on the rumours, Chan said: ’I am not dead, though I am so busy that I may get worked to death.

‘I wish the media would report more on public service and charity news instead of gossip. It is of much greater value.

‘Even Will Smith was fooled and mourned my passing on the Internet.’

Chan is currently working with charities to help provide relief to the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami last month.
