    A Hong Kong shipping tycoon has offered a $65 million "marriage bounty'' to any man who can win the heart of his lesbian daughter, a report said today.

    Cecil Chao announced the financial reward of HK$500 million after his daughter, Gigi, married her same-sex partner of seven years in France earlier this year, the South China Morning Post reported.

    "I don't mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind hearted,'' 76-year-old Chao was quoted as stating.

    "Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work,'' he added.

    He also rejected "false reports'' that Gigi, 33, had married abroad, saying she was still single.

    Seems like he's having trouble accepting that his daughter is a lesbian. So who is booking tickets to Hong Kong?

    Sign me up. As a gay we'd be perfect for each other as neither of us would want sex.

    Just split the money with her and why wouldn't she agree to it? Then just take the money and go your own separate ways. Sorted.
