Jerry Lewis' daughter is homeless

The assumed daughter of late entertainer Jerry Lewis has revealed she is homeless, living a very different life to the one her famous father did.

Suzan Lewis lives on the streets of Philadelphia, and while she has to store her belongings in shopping bags and take them around with her, she tries to see the positives.

"I always look at the bright side," Suzan, who shares a striking resemblance to Jerry, has told Inside Edition.

"No point being negative — then you'd be miserable."

Spending most of her days in food courts, Suzan says her homeless life is "something that just happened".

Back in 2009, paternity test results revealed there was 88.7 per cent certainty that Jerry was Suzan's father.

Suzan claims her mother Lynn Dixon, a model, met Jerry when he was 23 years of age at Copoacabana Club in New York. She says that's when their three-year affair commenced.

When Jerry passed away last month at the age of 91 following a cardiac arrest, Suzan wasn't the first to know.
