MORE celebrities are expected to be arrested over drug offences as Chinese police widen their net to include stars who are friends of Jackie Chan's son, Jaycee Chan.

Apple Daily reported that three high-profile male celebrities have been noted down in a list made by the police, following Chan's confession and CCTV footage.

Among the trio is an actor whose surname starts with C. The report said that he is known in China and Taiwan, and is close to Chan.

The other two are an actor with surname starting with H and a singer whose surname starts with C.

These three are among a list of 120 celebrities from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, said Apple Daily.

Chan, 31, and Taiwanese actor Kai Ko, 23, were arrested in a marijuana bust on Aug 14. Police found 115g of marijuana - equivalent to 250 cigarettes - in Chan's luxury apartment at Naga Shangyuan.

Apple Daily reported that Chan, who is currently based in China after setting up entertainment company One House in 2010, has been throwing parties at home.

His famous celebrity friends include Hong Kong's Eason Chan and Nicholas Tse, Taiwan's Jay Chou and Chen Bo-lin, and South Korea's G-Dragon and Seungri from BigBang.

Chen - who is a close friend of Jaycee Chan's - was celebrating his 31st birthday elsewhere at the time of the arrests, said his agent.

Taiwanese pop star Jam Hsiao's agent said he was Chan's basketball buddy, and had been to the actor's home only once, two to three years ago.

Netizens on Weibo claim that four people were arrested in Chan's case and the other two, "a W and a H", have "stronger backgrounds".

They alleged that the two are property heir Wang Shuo and actress Han Xue.

Apple Daily was unable to contact the two. Han has denied the allegations on Weibo.
