A Hong Kong shipping tycoon has reportedly offered a HK$500 million ($65 million) "marriage bounty" for her lesbian daughter.
33-year-old Gigi Chao married her female partner earlier this year and that apparently didn't sit well with her father.
Cecil Chao is offering the cash to any man who can capture Gigi's heart, the South China Morning Post reported.
"I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted," Cecil was quoted as saying by the Hong Kong daily.
Gigi last week revealed she married Sean Eav in France earlier this year. Same-sex marriages are not legal in Hong Kong. Homosexuality was decriminalized in 1991.
Her father, the 76-year-old owner of Cheuk Nang (Holdings) Ltd., rejected suggestions that Gigi is a lesbian, and described reports she had gotten hitched as false.
Cecil Chao is hardly one to be giving marriage advice: he is known in Hong Kong as the "playboy tycoon," and once claiming to having had sex with 10,000 women.
Gigi, who runs a modeling and marketing company and is a director at Cheuk Nang, is his first of three children with different women.
Gigi Chao Facebook page was inundated with friend requests after the report. She posted, "No longer accepting facebook friend requests... sorry."
She also posted: "where do all these people come from? Jerusalm? Ethiopia? Istanbul? ridiculous."
Her Twitter feed also started getting new followers. She posted: "I would like to announce that i suddenly received a whole bunch of followers on my twitter account which i never use."
Her father was getting backlash on the Morning Post comment section.
"Cecil, you sound like you're selling your daughter," one commentator wrote. "Get with the times."
Another comment said: "How humiliating for this poor girl ... Mr. Chao needs to come out of denial and just be happy that he has such a beautiful daughter.
