In a strange case of father's feelings for his daughter's sexuality, a Hong Kong billionaire has offered a large sum of money for any man who can woo his married lesbian daughter.
According to Business Insider, Hong Kong tychoon Cecil Chao Sze-tsung publicly announced on Wednesday that there will be a $65 million "reward." This comes after he heard that his daughter, the 33-year-old, Gigi Chao, had eloped with her long-time same-sex partner in France.

Chao, who owns Cheuk Nang (Holdings) Ltd., denied the reports of his daughter's lesbian wedding claiming that they were "false," but his latest announcement comes directly after hearing the news.
He talked about the man that he wants to woo his daughter to the South China Morning Post saying, "I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted."
The billionaire 76-year-old billionaire has never been married. This might not make him the best person to give marital advice, but it hasn't stopped him from his continued plea for his daughter to find a man to settle down with. He describes his daughter the potential suitors as "a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work."
Gigi, who works as a director within her father's company, was in a seven-year-long relationship with her same-sex partner before they decided to get married. She claims her father's new plan is "entertaining."
Chao added that on top of the offered sum he would also help the successful man to launch his own business venture saying that the money was "an inducement to attract someone who has the talent, but not the capital, to start his own business."
There is no word yet on whether any suitors have pursued the generous offer.
