The Hong Kong billionaire playboy who offered nearly £40million to any man who could turn his homosexual daughter straight, has now doubled the ‘dowry’.
Cecil Chao raised the reward to HK$1million (£80million) after thousands of eligible bachelors failed to convince his daughter Gigi to marry any of them.
The 77-year-old property magnate insists that 34-year-old Gigi is ‘still single’ despite the fact that she married her long-term partner Sean Eav two years ago.
Mr Chao told a Malaysian newspaper that despite offering HK$500million, approximately £40million, and 20,000 men registering their interest in taking up the quest, Gigi is still not in a straight marriage.
He said that he did not want to interfere with his daughter’s private life, but that he wanted her to have ‘a good marriage and children’.
