HONG KONG - News reports say Bruce Lee's former home in Hong Kong is being sold to raise money for earthquake relief efforts in China.
The Souch China Morning Post reports philanthropist Yu Pang-lin plans to sell five residential properties in the Kowloon Tong district, including Lee's former home, with the proceeds going to quake relief. Reports say Lee lived in the two-story house in the 1960s and 1970s, but it has since been turned into a love motel.
The report says the plot has an estimated worth of US$13 million.
Lee, who died in Hong Kong in 1973 at age 32 from swelling of the brain, was born in San Francisco but grew up in Hong Kong where he also made his name as an actor.
The action star was known for films in which he portrayed characters that defended the Chinese and the working class from oppressors.
Yu was not immediately available for comment.
