$62MIL TO MARRY MY LESBIAN DAUGHTER
Gigi Chao has been getting a lot of friend requests on Facebook since her father, a Hong Kong billionaire, put a $62 million pricetag on her sexuality.
Chao is a lesbian in a long-term committed relationship and reportedly just married her girlfriend Sean Eav, with whom she looks extremely happy in this photo.

However, it didn’t stop her real estate tycoon father Cecil Chau Sze-Tsung going public and offering a small cash incentive – HK$500 million – to a prospective husband who may lure her away from lesbianism.
It won’t surprise you to know that same sex unions are not recognized in Hong Kong. They’re certainly not recognized by Cecil Chau.
Despite the news that his daughter married her girlfriend of seven years in France, Chao told BBC News Asia that his daughter was still single and needed a good husband. His generous offer, he said, had already generated many replies from potential suitors.
“It is an inducement to attract someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business,” Mr Chao said.
“I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.
“Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work.”
Such global humiliation for her, such gargantuan denial from him.

According to the London Daily Telegraph, Gigi’s Facebook and Twitter accounts have been inundated with friend requests and followers, but she has written: “No longer accepting Facebook friend requests… sorry.”
The Manchester University architecture graduate has also been reported as saying that she found the news of her father’s marriage bounty “entertaining”.
It does seem like an entertaining chap. Now 76, he has a reputation in Hong Kong as a flamboyant playboy, has never married but has claimed to have slept with 10,000 women.
Despite his public plea for a man to marry his daughter, Chau does insist that he would not force her to marry a man against her will.
Gee, thanks Dad!
We know Dads can be embarrassing, but this is ridiculous.
Do you have an embarrassing Dad story? We’re pretty sure you won’t be able to top this one…
