A Hong Kong billionaire playboy, who offered nearly 40 million pounds to any man who could turn his lesbian daughter straight, now hopes that the “change” will come naturally, according to News Track India.
When Cecil Chao found out about his daughter Gigi’s marriage to her partner of eight years, he publicly denied the union and retorted by offering $500 million Hong Kong dollars to the man who could convince her to marry him.
The 76-year-old property magnate has now reportedly accepted 33-year-old Gigi’s “gay tendencies” but has made some heavy hints that he wants her to “re-consider her choice.”
“I’m not saying that she’s not okay to be gay,” the Daily Mail quoted him as telling ABC News 20/20. ”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,” he said.
Chao married her long-term partner Sean in a church ceremony in Paris earlier this year, but it was not until news of their union was printed in the Hong Kong tabloids that her father promised the million HKD fortune to any potential male suitor able to walk Gigi down the aisle.
Chao had already told her father about her wedding, and said he was “surprised and unpleasantly shocked,” but urged her not to make it public.
