If You Woo This Hong Kong Billionaire’s Daughter, He’ll Make You a Very Rich Man
He’s offered over $64 million to any man who can marry his lesbian daughter.
Want that money? Well, you’re going to have your work cut out for you.
The property magnate announced the HK$500million reward following reports his daughter Gigi Chao, a Manchester University graduate, had tied the knot with her long-term female partner in a ceremony in France.
The tycoon launched his controversial search for a son-in-law even though architecture graduate Ms Chao is believed to have married her girlfriend of seven years, Sean Eav, on April 4 this year.
Mr Chao – who insisted reports of his daughter's nuptials were 'false' – told the South China Morning Post: 'I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.'
He said: 'Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work.'
Mr Chao said the £40million prize money was 'an inducement to attract someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business'.
The businessman insisted he would not force his daughter to marry a man against her will, but his stunt was condemned by readers who posted comments on the Hong Kong newspaper's website.
What a sweet deal. You completely rewrite a person’s sexual DNA, get a fat paycheck, and get to pick the brain of a business genius father-in-law. What could possibly go wrong here?
Get your passport, Bros. It’s game time.
