Cecil Chao, a Hong Kong business tycoon has a lot of money and a daughter who won’t conform to his rules.
Two years ago, the harried father offered 500 million Hong Kong dollars ($64 million) to any man that could win the love of his lesbian daughter.
"I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted," he said at the time.
Gigi's been since bombarded by marriage proposals from strangers, date requests, and even an offer from a Hollywood film producer to buy her story.
However, she remained a lesbian and turned down every one of the 20,000 suitors.
At a loss, he has now doubled the amount, raising it to HK$1billion ($147 million).
Mr. Chao insists that Gigi is 'still single' even though she married her long-term partner Sean Eav two years ago.
He said that he did not want to interfere with his daughter’s private life, but wanted her to have 'a good marriage and children'.
He may sound like a nutcase but he is really just one of millions of parents around the world who can’t see things their children’s way.
Coming to terms with a child being gay is not an easy task for most parents. The social stigma, the lack of understanding and just the fact that the older generation would rather just stick with the way things always have been create such generations gaps in many societies.
Gigi understands that. “I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,' she says. ‘Alternatively, I would be happy to befriend any man willing to donate huge amounts of money to my charity Faith in Love, provided they don’t mind that I already have a wife.
'Third and lastly, thank you Daddy, I love you too,'she adds.
