Cecil Chao Withdraws Million-Dollar Offer to Suitors of Lesbian Daughter Gigi

Following the publication of an open letter from his lesbian daughter Gigi yesterday, Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao has withdrawn his multi-million dollar offer to any man that can successfully woo her, CNN reports:

ChaoCecil Chao, a wealthy real estate developer, made headlines around the world in 2012 when he offered 500 million Hong Kong dollars (roughly $65 million) to any man who succeeded in marrying his daughter.
 $64M to marry my gay daughter

Recent reports that he was willing to double the offer put his family back in the headlines...

..."If Gigi's said that this is what she chooses, then it's all over," Cecil Chao said Thursday an interview with CNN's Monita Rajpal. He said the huge sum he had offered to potential suitors "stays in my pocket."

But the 77-year-old tycoon, who has three children but has never married, is unable to embrace his daughter's love life.

"I can't say I am happy with her choice," he said. "If this is her choice then it's for her."

And he said he wouldn't be welcoming Eav, 46, into his family, despite his daughter's plea.

Said Gigi in the letter:

"I am comfortable and satisfied with my life and completely at ease with her. I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman; I suppose I can’t really explain it either. It just happens, peacefully and gently, and after so many years, we still love each other very much. My regret is that you have no idea how happy I am with my life, and there are aspects of my life that you don’t share."


Lesbian Gigi Chao Responds to Father Who is Offering $130 Million for Male Suitor: VIDEO

Last week we reported that Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao had doubled a $65 million bounty for any man that could woo and marry his lesbian daughter.

ChaoChao told a Malaysian newspaper that he didn't want to interfere with Gigi's private life, but just wanted her to “have a good marriage and children as well as inherit my business.”

Gigi has now responded to her father in an open letter, via the South China Morning Post.

Writes Gigi in the letter:

I’m sorry to mislead you to think I was only in a lesbian relationship because there was a shortage of good, suitable men in Hong Kong.

There are plenty of good men, they are just not for me.

She adds:

"I am comfortable and satisfied with my life and completely at ease with her. I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman; I suppose I can’t really explain it either. It just happens, peacefully and gently, and after so many years, we still love each other very much.My regret is that you have no idea how happy I am with my life, and there are aspects of my life that you don’t share."
