Tycoon Offers Fortune To Marry Off Gay Daughter

AFP - A Hong Kong tycoon has offered a $65 million "marriage bounty" to any man who can win the heart of his lesbian daughter, a report said Wednesday.

Cecil Chao announced the financial reward of HK$500 million after his daughter, Gigi, married her same-sex partner of seven years in France earlier this year, the South China Morning Post reported.

"I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind hearted," 76-year-old Chao was quoted as saying.

"Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work," he added.

He also rejected "false reports" that Gigi, 33, had married abroad, saying she was still single.

Chao, who owns publicly-listed property developer Cheuk Nang, could not be reached for comment.

Same-sex marriages are not recognised in Hong Kong, a socially conservative Chinese city where homosexuality was decriminalised in 1991.

Chao is well known in Hong Kong's social circles and regularly appears at public events with his latest young girlfriend.

He reportedly once claimed to have had intimate relations with 10,000 women.

Girl, I would take that money. Work out a deal with your "husband" and split the money.

I don't think she and her "husband" need or care about such trivial thing as money.

Tycoon Father of Lesbian Daugher Offered Money For Prospective "Husband"

Chinese culture "face saving" tendency is pushing tycoon father to purchase a husband for her lesbian daughter.

Hong Kong tycoon recruits husband for lesbian daughter




Gigi Chao (right) is said to have married her partner, Sean Eav (left), earlier this year in France




A well-known Hong Kong billionaire has offered $65m (£40m) to any man able to woo and marry his lesbian daughter.



Property and shipping tycoon Cecil Chao publicly promised the "marriage bounty" after reports emerged that his daughter had wed her long-term girlfriend.
Mr Chao, who has never married himself, told the BBC his daughter was still single and needed a "good husband".


Same-sex unions are not recognised in Hong Kong, although homosexuality was decriminalised in 1991.
Gigi Chao, a businesswoman and graduate from the University of Manchester, is said to have married her female partner of seven years, Sean Eav, in a ceremony in France earlier this year.
But her flamboyant father rejected the claims as false, adding that his generous offer had already generated many replies from potential suitors.




"It is an inducement to attract someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business," Mr Chao said.
"I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.


"Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work."
His public hunt for a husband notwithstanding, Mr Chao insisted he would not force his daughter to marry a man against her will.


Ms Chao said she found her father's plan entertaining and would not worry about it until an actual suitor had been found.

For shares of $64 million, surely the woman in question, her wife and I could make some sort of arrangement.

Agree.

Looking at him they were probably all hookers.

You still live with your parents, don't you?
