Donnie Yen Chi Tan's son with former wife Leung Jing Chi, Jeff, was hospitalized for pneumothorax, but his father did not appear at the hospital.

According to a report on Hktopten, Leung Jing Chi later picked up Jeff from the hospital and declined to respond to any question about Donnie Yen.

Donnie Yen's wife Cissy Wang explained, "I read the report, Donnie has always had a great relationship with Jeff and has always stayed in touch. He really took care of his son, I don't know why such a report would appear.

"When Jeff was released from the hospital, Donnie was already in Beijing. Because he was too busy with his film, he could not return to Hong Kong. Every parent would worry about his or her child. Donnie immediately communicated with the doctor at the hospital. The doctor told Donnie not to worry, Jeff's condition was great." 

Will Cissy communicate with Donnies former wife? She said, "I felt that report was made up, as it claimed that a witness overheard it. The entire matter wasn't logical.

"Donnie and his former wife have been divorced for 18 years, but he has always been in contact with Jeff. Family comes first for our entire family. It's not good for reports to talk about the children. An artist has to face positive and negative news, but it's not good when the children are affected. Our relationship is great, no need to worry."

Cissy revealed that donnie stayed in contact with the hospital while in Beijing. She often sent text messages to Jeff to see how he was doing and found out that Jeff was already released from the hospital and his recovery has been ideal.
