Chantalle Ng Disclosed That She Was Beaten Up by Father Huang Yiliang & Had to Be Hospitalised for a Week


If you’ve watched I Not Stupid 2, you may be forgiven for thinking that actor Huang Yiliang’s character in the show was a mere gimmick.

“Surely he’s not like that in real life,” you reckon.

After all, he did treat his son to a brutal beat-down over the course of the movie; a notion that would cause even the “toughest” of audience to bat an eyelid.

But here’s the thing. Though real life is not reel life…

They could actually overlap at some point.

Chantalle Ng Disclosed That She Was Beaten Up by Father Huang Yiliang & Had to Be Hospitalised for a Week

It appears that local actress Chantalle Ng is enjoying her big break now.

Following an immense performance in the Channel 8 series My Star Bride, she has not only received a positive reception from fans and critics alike, but has even been touted to be the next Ah Jie.

Yes, in the same vein as local legends Zoe Tay and Fann Wong.

So in a way, you can say that she has been flying high.

However, it should be noted that it hasn’t always been that way for her.

In a recent episode on Quan Yi Fong’s talk show Hear U Out, the actress spoke out about her strained relationship with her estranged father, former actor Huang Yiliang.

Sharing that her family had split up before she turned one, Ng stated that she would visit her father every Sunday when she was in primary school.

However, she felt that his temper can be volatile, and she was afraid of his infuriated state.

It got to a point where she would become anxious the day before she saw him.

In one particular incident, her father had beaten her up so badly that she needed to be hospitalised for a week.

She was in Primary 5 at the time.


Apparently, he had arrived home and lost control. It ended up being a police case.

“Perhaps he was eager to see his daughter excel,” said Ng. “And perhaps he received some negative feedback from the tutor about my academic performance at that time, which made him angry.”

When Ng’s mother, local actress Lin Meijiao, tried to intervene, Huang allegedly threatened to hit her as well.

Ng then shouted at him not to beat her mother.

She ended up testifying in court.


Her mother also eventually decided to drop the case, after seeing how stressed and terrified Ng felt around Huang.

Since then, she has not contacted him.


Despite the trauma, Ng did try to reconcile with Huang during her secondary school days.

Apparently, elders told her to forgive and forget, seeing how he’s still her father.

She also has positive memories of him from when he brought her for sports such as swimming, golf and badminton.

However, the reconciliation effort ultimately fell through, as Ng could not get over her fear of him.


“Even until now, I’m 25 years old, I’m still not ready,” she said.


Apparently, Huang’s volatile behaviour does not stop at his family members.

On 26 Feb 2021, Ng Aik Leong, better known as Huang Yiliang, was sentenced to 10 months’ jail for voluntarily causing hurt with a weapon of offence.

According to CNA, the victim, Mr Jahidul, was cleaning a ventilation duct in a canteen area on 11 Dec 2018 when the incident happened.

Ng came across the area and was annoyed that too little string was used to fasten a plastic bag to a rubbish pail.


Normally, when faced with such an incident, you’ll either call the worker down and give him a verbal trashing or do it yourself.

Ng, however, decided to resolve the situation in a different way.

He threw a wooden plank at the victim but missed.

Then, he threw a plastic pail, which hit Mr Jahidul in the buttock.

He followed that up by attacking with a metal scraper.

For his actions, the prosecutor for the case asked for a ten months’ jail term and S$3,300 in compensation to the victim.

Calling Ng a bully, the prosecutor pointed out that if he can’t treat other human beings decently, he should be prepared to be punished.

Ng, who acted out his own defence, claimed that the victim had asked him to teach and beat him.


He added that he used the knowledge on how to throw fake punches when he was acting and did not hurt the victim.

Ng also made himself out to be a victim, calling Mr Jahidul a “big monster” who was out to “frame” him.

He was trying to “murder” him, Ng said.

Calling Ng’s defence “ridiculous”, the prosecutor said Ng should be taught that “might does not make right”.

He also faced another charge of disturbing the public peace by fighting with a person at Buffalo Road.
