    In a letter to her tycoon father, Gigi Chao rejected his offer of $65 million to find a husband. Chao wrote that her father should accept her partner, Sean Eav, and “treat her like a normal, dignified human being.” Demonstrating a good sense of humor about the situation, Chao apologized to her father, saying, “I’m sorry to mislead you to think I was only in a lesbian relationship because there was a shortage of good, suitable men in Hong Kong.” Cecil Chao, her father, has himself never married.
