Michelle Yeoh’s Siblings: The Oscar Winner Has a Brother Named Robert Yeoh; She Has Half-Brothers and Half-Sisters as Well!

Does Michelle Yeoh (@michelleyeoh_official) have siblings? Does she have a brother? Or a sister? Fans are very curious to know if she grew up alone or if she had companions in her early life. However, there’s no clear and detailed information about her early life.

We know that Michelle Yeoh was born on 6 August 1962 in Ipoh, Perak in a Malaysian Chinese family of Hokkien and Cantonese ancestry. She was born to Janet Yeoh and Yeoh Kian-teik. Her father Yeoh Kian-teik was a lawyer and Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) politician. He was also the man who led the popular bus service Sri Maju. Her mother Janet Yeoh was a housewife. Now, about her siblings, there’s not much to go on.

Some outlets have reported that she has two siblings Robert Yeoh and Lam Mei Yeoh. While nothing is said about her brother Robert, her sister Lam Mei is said to be a former Miss Malaysia and a television personality. However, there’s nothing to verify this information. No Lam Mei has been Miss Malaysia so far per the records despite what some outlets have written.

This is all the information about Michelle Yeoh’s siblings. She is also said to have some half-brothers and half-sisters. When she won the Oscar for Best Actress recently, her half-siblings were reported to have celebrated her win but there was no news about her real brother and sister.

Her half-brother Ronald Yeoh, a Singaporean eye surgeon, said in his interview with Today that he was obviously delighted that Michelle Yeoh’s career was strong even in her 60s and that she was carrying the torch for Asians and women.

His sister, Michelle Yeoh’s half-sister, Ms Tan Chee Koon said that their whole family was over the moon when they watched Michelle hold the famous golden trophy and make another step for female Asian representation in the limelight and they were touched when she acknowledged her mum, her brothers and sisters, and her family in her acceptance speech.

Both her half-brother Dr Yeoh and half-sister Ms Tan share the same father — the late Yeoh Kian Teik — as Michelle Yeoh. They are the children of their father’s second wife, while the actress is from his fourth wife.
