The elder daughter of Hong Kong chief executive Leung Chun-ying was caught on camera slapping her mother in Lan Kwai Fong early Sunday after Halloween celebrations.
Leung Chai-yan, 24, claimed during the altercation that Regina Leung Tong Ching-yee “is not my biological mother”, Apple Daily reported Monday.
Chai-yan was seen waiting for a taxi after she got out of a night club in the entertainment district at about 3 am.
She was dressed as a white-haired ghost.
Several taxi drivers refused to pick her up.
Chai-yan, mobbed by reporters, then seemed to snap and began to make a scene on the street.
Some of her friends took her into a restaurant to calm her down.
Later, her mother arrived in a taxi to take her home.
When Tong stepped out, grabbing Chai-yan to push her into the taxi, her daughter suddenly slapped her and did it again when Tong was about to get into the cab.
As someone in the crowd tried to stop Chai-yan, she said: “You know, this mom is not my actual biological mother?”
Tong eventually let her taxi driver take Leung home, accompanied by a male friend.
She then went into a nearby restaurant.
Tong left after about 15 minutes, refusing to answer reporters’ questions.
Chai-yan was seen arriving at Government House, where the family lives, at 3:43 a.m.
She once wrote in English on her Facebook page that she did not think it was a joke that she was adopted from a trash can on the street, which her parents often told her.
Leung Chun-ying said earlier this year that his daughter is sick and suffers from emotional fluctuations.
