Poor Gigi Chao.
globalpost reports that, just a week after the 33-year-old Hong Kong socialite revealed she is married to her female partner of seven years, her tycoon father has launched a public campaign to marry her off to a man.
Cecil Chao, a Hong Kong shipping magnate and property developer, is offering a $65m marriage bounty to the man who captures Gigi's heart, the South China Morning Post reported earlier this week.
Ms Chao last week revealed she married long-time partner Sean Eav in France earlier this year. Same-sex marriages are not legally recognized in Hong Kong.
