A billionaire property magnate has doubled an earlier offer of £40 million to anyone who could “turn” his lesbian daughter “straight”.

Hong Kong based Cecil Chao’s daughter, Gigi, thus far has fended off some 20,000 suitors since her father made the offer in 2012 and has been married to her long-term partner, Sean Eav, for two years. He claims to want her to have “a good marriage and children” whilst she responded:

 

“I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive”.

 

Though Mr Chao himself admits to having bedded 10,000 women, his daughter – who is an executive at her father’s company, a part-time pilot and founder of an anti-poverty charity named Faith in Love Foundation – simply states:

 

“At the office it’s business as usual. At family gatherings we hug and dance. And we just agree to disagree on what marriage is and family is”.

 

Though Cecil Chao plainly won’t be parting with any cash anytime soon, his more than tolerant daughter plainly must really actually be just truly embarrassed by his behaviour. He would do well to keep quiet.

  1. Cecil presents with a well known disease called boredom, he wants to play the Brewster Millions game, made famous by the comedian Richard Pryor in the hit 1980’s movie. At the Manhattan law office of Granville & Baxter, Brewster is told that his recently deceased great-uncle Rupert Horn, whom he has never met, has left him his entire fortune because Monty is his only living blood relative (by way of Monty’s grandmother, Rupert’s half-sister), but with several conditions.

    Brewster is challenged to either take $1 million upfront or spend $30 million within 30 days to inherit $300 million. If he chooses the former, the law firm becomes executor of the estate and divides the money among charities (after taking a sizable fee). In the latter case, after 30 days, he must spend the entire $30 million within one month. I will introduce his daughter to our own Vicky Pryce, she might have a change of heart. I will only require 5% of the prize money. Public Relations is becoming a circus, it is embarrassing.
