A Hong Kong shipping magnate is ready to pay a jaw-dropping $65 million to the man who can convince his 33-year-old daughter to tie the knot.
The catch: She may already be married — to a woman.
Billionaire playboy Cecil Chao said he’s looking for a guy to wed his socialite daughter, Gigi, an open lesbian. The South China Morning Post first reported his “marriage bounty” Wednesday.
“I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor,” 76-year-old Chao said of potential suitors. “The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.”
Chao scoffed at reports that Gigi had married her partner, a woman named Sean Eav, in France last April, according to London’s The Telegraph. The pair have been together for seven years.
Homosexuality was decriminalized in Hong Kong in 1991, but same-s*x marriages or civil unions are not legal.
Chao, who isn’t married and claims to have have slept with 10,000 women, told the BBC the dowry is a way to attract “someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business.”
He added that he would never force his daughter — the oldest of his three children — to marry someone.
The raven-haired beauty is a businesswoman herself, with a model management and public relations firm. She describes herself on Facebook as a social entrepreneur and “a woman that cares to look another in the eye and seek what’s behind.”
She previously said her father had a “hands-off approach” raising her, The Telegraph reported.
As for her father’s money-for-matrimony scheme, Gigi Chao called it entertaining — but she isn’t worried until an actual suitor comes along, according to the BBC.
