Being an actor with great looks, Jackie Chan had a larger fan following, especially among females. For an actor, it is great to acknowledge his fan’s craziness. However, there was an incident that he could never forget.

In his autobiography, Chan mentioned that while shooting in Hong Kong, a female fan would greet him with good luck wishes written on small notes. Initially, Jackie sweetly acknowledged them. However, soon it became very unusual. The context of those messages changed. They read, “I know can’t acknowledge me openly, but that’s alright, as long as you keep looking at me. I’ll know the connection between our hearts is still alive”.

Surprisingly, before her messages would begin from Yumiko, later changed to ‘Mrs. Chan’. She would introduce herself as Mrs. Chan in the studio. She was in Hong Kong on a tourist visa. Jackie’s fans would frequently visit Macau and return to Hong Kong.

However, at one point she stopped doing so. The police tracked her down, but she extended her visa, saying she was Jackie Chan’s wife. After several such instances, the police cleared the matter with Jackie’s office. Chan stated in his autobiography, “By the end, she started running out of money and was staying in worse and worse hotels. I knew she couldn’t go on like this, and I couldn’t bear to let her continue throwing her life away on a delusion.”
