Hong Kong — Martial arts star Donnie Yen, who was close to his father-in-law, has been in mourning after the latter passed away on Sept 20 following a two-year battle with cancer.
Daniel Wang, who was a jeweller, was called a “fighter” by the actor.
Wang, 68, was surrounded by his loved ones when he passed away. The funeral was held on Wednesday (Oct 7) at Hong Kong’s St John’s Cathedral. It was attended by family and friends. Wreaths from Yen’s fellow celebrity friends such as William So, Simon Yam, Richie Ren, Miriam Yeung and director Wong Jing were spotted in the funeral hall.
Yen’s wife Cissy Wang and sister-in-law Irene were emotional as they greeted the media. Yen told reporters: “This has been a sombre moment for our family and it is difficult for us to calm down. Everyone knows our family is united and harmonious. My father-in-law had fought this battle for two years. He is a fighter. This illness took him away from us, so today, we will remember the happiness he has given us. Thank you all for your concern.”
His wife and sister-in-law said tearfully that they will miss the times spent with their father. They did not, however, say anything when asked about his last wishes.
Last week, in celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Yen posted a tribute to Wang on Instagram. “You are with us always, father-in-law! [I’ll] Always try my best to learn how to be a better father and husband from you. But you are truly one of a kind, you are the best and no one can argue with that.”
Yen has been married to 39-year-old Cissy, his second wife, since 2003. He has 2 children with her and one with his first wife Leung Zing Ci.
Yen, 57, is an actor, martial artiste, film director, producer, action choreographer, stuntman and multiple-time world wushu tournament champion. He is one of Hong Kong’s top action stars and has displayed skill in an array of martial arts, being well-versed in taiji, boxing, kick-boxing, jeet kune do, hapkido, taekwondo, karate, muay thai, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, wing chun and wushu.
One of the most popular film stars in Asia of the early 2000s, Yen is consistently one of the highest-paid actors in the continent. He has a net in worth in 2020 of between US$40 million and US$50 million (S$54 million and S$67 million). /TISG

Stars’ best friends! Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and more celebrities have turned to their furry friends for comfort during the coronavirus outbreak — and many are providing forever homes to pups in need. The “Slide Away” singer, 27, and boyfriend Cody Simpson introduced their rescue pup Bo to their Instagram followers earlier this month, adding to Cyrus’ growing menagerie of pets. The Disney alum spoke with the owner of California’s Wagmor Luxury Spa, Hotel & Rescue, Melissa Bacelar, during a recent episode of her Instagram Live series and discussed how the current COVID-19 crisis has impacted animal shelters across the country. “[Bo] was so shy when we first got him and he’s totally out of his shell now. He’s such a mama’s boy, which I love,” Cyrus told the shelter owner earlier this month. Gomez, also 27, also used her platform to encourage fans to think of the canine companions who are in need of a safe home during this hectic time. “I would like to introduce my new family member, Daisy,” the Spring Breakers actress said during a livestream on Instagram in March. “I know a few friends who are fostering right now, just to give animals a safe place … I couldn’t help it, I had to keep her.” Not only does fostering or adopting a pet benefit the lucky pups who are given forever homes, but having the support of a pet is equally as beneficial for the new caretakers, especially during periods of high stress. For actress Camila Morrone, fostering her husky was “the single best decision” she could have made for her mental health during her self-quarantine. “For all my friends showing interest in doing this, DO IT,” the 22-year-old Argentina native captioned a snuggly Instagram post of herself and her new pup, noting that fostering an animal in need is a life-changing experience. “You won’t regret it these sweet creatures need you so badly.” Scroll down to see which other stars have adopted or fostered dogs to help them get through their coronavirus isolation.
Now that Benedict Cumberbatch is set to return as sorcerer supreme Doctor Strange in the upcoming “Spider-Man 3” opposite Tom Holland, could the movie adapt a controversial Spidey storyline from the “One More Day” comic book crossover? In fact, it could. IGN speculates that the cliffhanger ending of “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which featured Peter Parker’s secret identity being revealed to the whole world by J. Jonah Jameson, is the perfect…
