Unlike the regular rich fathers from Bollywood films, A poor billionaire father from Hong Kong is willing to pay $120 million to ‘any’ man who would turn his lesbian daughter straight.A real estate tycoon from Honk Kong Cecil Chao has offered a fortune to any man who can make his daughter Gigi change her sexual preference. But she is determined to prove that her love cannot be bought.
“I’m not saying that she’s not okay to be gay. I mean it’s her own choice and her own tendency … But (she should) make sure she knows what she wants. Maybe what she wants today is different (than) what she wants in the future.” said Mr. Cecil Chao.
In 2012, Chao made headlines when he offered $65 million to any eligible bachelor who would marry his daughter after learning that she had eloped with her partner, Sean Eav.
Gigi Chao’s inbox has been inundated with marriage proposals, but she is intent on staying with her partner. Her 2014 CNN interview reveals some insight into the overwhelmingly conservative culture to which her father staunchly belongs, yet Chao remains true to herself and her decisions. She published an open letter to her father, urging him to accept her, which prompted him to withdraw his offer. Nevertheless, an article from the South China Morning Post reports that Cecil Chao has not yet come to terms with his daughter’s marriage.
