HONG KONG (CBS Seattle) – A wealthy businessman in Hong Kong has reportedly offered $65 million for a man to woo away his lesbian daughter from her long-term girlfriend.
Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, 76, made the offer after he heard reports that his daughter, Gigi Chao, entered into a civil partnership with her girlfriend Sean B. Eav.
He told the South China Morning Post that those reports are false.
“I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted,” Mr. Chao told The Daily Telegraph about the man he is seeking for his daughter.
Chao is one of Hong Kong’s wealthiest businessmen and said the money he is offering can be used for someone to start their own business.
“Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous, and does volunteer work,” he told the Telegraph.
In 2007, Gigi gave an interview to HK Magazine and mentioned her upbringing which differs from her father’s side of the story.
“My father took a hands-off approach in parenting. I see him as a friend more than a father,” she told the magazine.
Currently, Gigi has over 6,000 subscribers on her Facebook page but is currently no longer accepting any more friend requests.
“No longer accepting Facebook friend requests…sorry. Where do all these people come from? Jerusalm? Ethiopia? Istanbul? ridiculous. It’s also quite scary that my friend requests number keeps jumping up every few seconds.”
