'Please accept that I'm happynow,' lesbian heiress tellsdad

A Hong Kong tycoon just can’t accept his daughter is sharing her life with a woman – and it’s torn their family apart.

Back in 2012, multi-millionaire property developer Cecil Chao was offering $65 million dollars to a man who’ll marry his daughter Gigi, but she’d already found happiness with a bride she married in France earlier that year. The couple are pictured above.

Now the situation is back in the news again as Cecil has doubled his cash offer and heard from thousands of eager eligible male hopefuls.

“I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman. I suppose I can’t really explain it either.”

An embarrassed Gigi has now written an open letter to her father in the South China Morning Post.

“As your daughter, I would want nothing more than to make you happy,” she writes. “But in terms of relationships, your expectations of me and the reality of who I am, are not coherent.

“You know I’ve had male lovers in the past, and I’ve had happy, albeit short-lived, relationships. I found myself temporarily happy, buoyed by the freshness, the attention, the interest, of someone physically stronger than myself. But it was always short-lived, as I quickly lost patience, and felt an indescribable discomfort in their presence. It usually made me frustrated, and I would yearn for my freedom again.

“But with Sean, a woman, somehow it was different. I am comfortable and satisfied with my life and completely at ease with her. I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman; I suppose I can’t really explain it either. It just happens, peacefully and gently, and after so many years, we still love each other very much.”

She adds: “Now, I’m not asking you to be best of friends; however, it would mean the world to me if you could just not be so terrified of her, and treat her like a normal, dignified human being.”

I wonder if the father will pay me millions to marry her ? dont know if can act straight but for millions am willing to give it ago.

The girlfriend can come live with us and after an reasonable amount of time we divorce and I get even more millions.

The father's a bit of a c..t though.

I think someone beat you to it Oldie. Besides, what he (farther) wanted was to "convert" her to being straight. Mission impossible .
