But obviously I would, from my point of view, prefer her to be married and to have grandchildren.”According to South China Morning Post, the latest offer of HK$1 billion has attracted 500 e-mails.“I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,” she told the South China Morning Post.Om Wednesday, The 33-year-old has written an open letter to her father, urging him to accept her as she is and treat her gay partner as a “normal dignified human being”.“I am proud of my life, and I would not choose to live it any other way … I’m sorry I misled you to think I was only in a lesbian relationship because there was a shortage of good, suitable men in Hong Kong. There are plenty of good men, they are just not for me,” Gigi wrote in a letter sent to her father.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.
