JAPAN - A japanese model-cum-actress has claimed that she had a one-year relationship with Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan in the 1980s.
Sin Chew Daily reported that Aki Mizusawa described Chan as a gentleman with a well-built physique during a variety show in Japan recently.
According to the report, Chan could have been married to Joan Lim and their son Jaycee was already one year old when he had the alleged affair.
Mizusawa, who was then a Japanese correspondent in France, had earlier said her encounter with Chan began when she was assigned to interview him in Barcelona.
Chan was said to be filming Wheel on Meals in 1984, a comedy martial art film directed by Sammo Hung then.
Both of them did not see each other after the one-year relationship until recent years when Chan visited Japan.
Asked about the affair during a promotional event on his latest film Police Story 2013 in Beijing, Chan did not deny it.
"This can be discussed privately. I can't clear the air in just a few lines," he was quoted as saying.
