Gigi Chao Thanks “Marriage Bounty” Responses, But Says No Thanks.

Late last month, we wrote about how billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-tsung was offering $65 million to anyone that could make his daughter Gigi Chao straight.  Gigi is a lesbian that is married to Sean Eav, her girlfriend of 7 years.  “Dear Earthlings, thank you for your flood of marriage proposals, love letters, business proposals, death threats and other general correspondence,” said Ms. Chao.  “Whether you are Muslim, Catholic, Atheist, Hindu, or what your world views may be, I implore you to stop bothering my friends or my receptionist.”

Chao founded a lot of unwanted and awkward fame after Mr. Chao had made the “marriage bounty” offer to any man that could win her heart.

“I pray that you will all find love, that which begins with self-love, and that which begins from love of parents, and that which stems from love of the Universe,” added Ms. Chao.  “It’s been my deepest honour that you have found me interesting enough to follow me.”

Mr. Cecil Chao Sze-tsung runs a publicly-listed property development company known as Cheuk Nang.  “I don’t mind if he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted,” said Mr. Chao.  He made that offer after it was revealed that 33-year-old Ms. Chao and 45-year-old Sean Eav had a church blessing on their relationship in France.

“I would like to announce that I suddenly received a whole bunch of followers on my Twitter account which I never use,” added Ms. Chao.  Ms. Chao runs a model management and public relations firm called Haut Monde Talent.

“As a daughter of a successful actress (Yao Wei) and a well-known businessman, I was confused about what to do with my life. In fact, many of my friends with parents who have achieved a lot face the same dilemma,” said Ms. Chao.  She added that “some choose to embrace it, get spoiled and be the prima donna.”

Ms. Chao said that usually her father has a hands-off approach when it comes to raising her.  However she said that her mother has a hard time accepting her sexuality as a lesbian.  When she told her mother about a relationship she had with a girl when she was 16, Ms. Chao recalled that her mother “banged her head against the wall, literally.”
