According to Telegraph UK on Thursday, September 27, 2012, Gigi Chao granted them a short interview and talked about the $65 million ‘marriage bounty’ being offered by his Hong Kong business tycoon father, who also denied reports that she has married her long-time girlfriend named Sean Eav (or Sean Yeung).
“At first I was entertained by it, and then that entertainment turned into the realization and conviction that I am a really lucky girl to have such a loving daddy, because it’s really sweet of him to do something like this as an expression of his fatherly love,” Gigi Chao, 33, told The Daily Telegraph.
“People are contacting me on Facebook, by email, on Twitter. It’s ridiculous. I can’t sort out the serious proposals from the half-hearted ones. I can’t make head or tail of it,” Ms. Chao added, noting that she already received around 200 marriage proposals via social sites and thousands of e-mails.
“It’s not that he can’t accept me. It’s that he can’t accept how society would view me and the status that it would incur. Marriage is still a form of social status. I do understand him. I understand why he’s doing this.” Gigi said of her father, and stressed out that she loved her father and that they had a good relationship.
