Yes, that’s right – if as a man you can convince the pretty girl in the photo accompanying this story, you’ll instantly become $120 million (about N19 billion) richer!
Gigi – that’s her name – is a lesbian but her superrich tycoon dad Cecil Chao is desperate for her to do the normal thing by marrying a man.
Cecil Chao Sze-tsung had previously offered $60 million (about N8.5 billion) to any man who could win his lesbian daughter’s heart but he has now doubled his offer after she turned down 20,000 suitors.
Chao Sze-tsung, a Hong Kong property tycoon, on Monday told Malaysian newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau that he has not finished trying to arrange a straight match for openly gay Gigi Chao, 33.
“I don’t want to interfere with my daughter’s private life,” said Cecil, not too convincingly. “I only hope for her to have a good marriage and children as well as inherit my business.”
But rather than being happy, TIME.com, quoting the South China Morning Post, reports that news of the offer has left Sean Eav, Gigi Chao’s partner for nine years, “distraught.”
Gigi Chao, according to the report, has spoken of the couple’s anguish at her father’s behaviour and told the Post that she has repeatedly asked him to stop offering the bounty.
The report describes Gigi Chao as a highly respected LGBT activist in Hong Kong and a founding member of the local gay rights group Big Love Alliance.
