The actor son of Hong Kong’s action movie star Jackie Chan, has been detained in Beijing on drug related charges. This is the latest high-profile celebrity to be ensnared in one of China’s biggest anti-drug crackdowns in two decades.
Jaycee Chan, 31, was detained last Thursday together with the 23-year-old Taiwanese movie star and singer Kai Ko. Chan is also an actor and a singer.
Beijing police said Monday on their official microblog, identifying them only by their surnames, ages, and nationalities.
It wasn’t clear why the detentions were announced several days later.
