London, Jan 27 (ANI): Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao, who made headlines around the world by offering 40 million pounds to any man who could woo and marry his lesbian daughter, has revealed that his offer still stands.
Chao, however, now says that 33-year-old Gigi "can choose whatever she wants" - but still wishes her to be married to a man.
"Anyone who comes along to pursue Gigi, we will give them a moderately deluxe life," the Telegraph quoted the property developer as telling the Financial Times, ignoring the civil partnership his daughter has entered into with her long-term girlfriend.
76-year-old Chao has his own unique approach to romance, once claiming to have slept with 10,000 women.
He admitted that he never counted, but it could be possible.
Since offering his daughter's hand to whoever could persuade her to take it, Chao has received hundreds of proposals of marriage himself.
He offered the multi-million pound dowry in September after a reporter from a gossip magazine told him Gigi had entered into a civil partnership with her girlfriend of seven years, Sean Yeung.
Chao said his offer was motivated by the desire for grandsons and daughters. (ANI)
