The former martial arts actor has reportedly written his will under the witness of his lawyer and actress Amy Fan

During Mid-Autumn Festival last year, former Hong Kong martial arts actor Gordon Liu was troubled by his family’s dispute over his assets and lost 5kg after he went on a hunger strike. Recent photos of the 57-year-old smiling and looking a bit fleshier seem to suggest that the family tussle over his wealth is now over.

It is reported that Gordon recently penned his will which was witnessed by his lawyer and actress Amy Fan. His cash assets which have been depleted by his medical fees are now under Amy’s management.

The actress mentioned that a caregiver is currently looking after Gordon, who has been undergoing physiotherapy. His monthly expenses are said to be paid using his savings and are handled by his lawyer.

Amy also revealed Gordon’s plans to sell off his property assets to raise money for his medical fees, should he fail to seek compensation from Eva, his long-time personal assistant who is being legally prosecuted for misappropriating the actor’s money.
However, she declined to disclose the details of his will and said, “I am one of the witnesses so I will not gain anything from it.”
It was previously reported that Gordon’s Thai wife and their children threatened him to give up his entire wealth and even wiped out his house in a bid to retrieve all his valuables, after he suffered a fall in August 2011 which led to a stroke that left him paralysed in the lower half of his body.

Hard to believe he's only 57 there. Also very sad about the medical fees. Why is it so expensive? Wouldn't he have had medical insurance to cover it?

Having money means nothing if even your family is just after it. Where is the compassion and meaning to life anymore? Greedy people.

That's a little harsh.

Not all Thai people are like that.

People in general, regardless of race, can be corrupted by money.

It so sad to see him end up this way. I still remember him in Shaolin.

Precisely. Along with the $ territory, come the insincere fakes and that greed.

Even if a person starts out as nice, if the greed part overtakes that .... the agenda changes. And it ultimately ends up the same way.

It's sad how someone always so fit and active has deteriorated so fast bec of illness + stress combined.
He looks way older than his 57, more like someone in his 80s.

It is sad when people are after your money, but is a lot worse when it is your own family. People often have kids and a mate hoping that they can all take care of each other, but now look at what has happened?? This is such a tragedy and you never know where life can take you. You can rich and famous one moment but poor and unknown the next... Really depressing...
