Born in 1936, Cecil Chao Sze-tsung is a Hong Kong based real estate tycoon and chairman of HK-listed developer Cheuk Nang Holdings. Known for his flamboyant playboy lifestyle, Chao raised eyebrows the world over in September 2012 when he announced a HK$ 500 million bounty to look for a man who could win the heart of his daughter Gigi Chao, who is believed to be lesbian and have married her partner in a civil union overseas.

Tycoon Cecil Chao Sze-tsung has launched a succession plan that will allow his daughter, Gigi Chao, to take the helm of the family property company Cheuk Nang.
Hong Kong socialite Gigi Chao was reluctantly thrown into the spotlight when her tycoon father Cecil Chao Sze-tsung declared his refusal to accept she was a lesbian by issuing a HK$500 million ‘dowry’ to a man that could marry her. Now she has written a poignant open letter to him after he doubled his offer last week.
Comedians Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam are reported to have signed up for the Hollywood film loosely inspired by Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-tsung's HK$500 million bounty to woo and wed his lesbian daughter, Gigi.
Gigi Chao and her father may have different opinions about how she lives her life, but that did not deter them from enjoying a night at the theatre under the same roof last night.
Sacha Baron Cohen has signed a deal with Paramount Pictures to bring the Gigi Chao story to the big screen, in a comedy film tentatively titled The Lesbian.
