HONG KONG - The daughter of a Hong Kong tycoon who has offered $65 million to any man who can woo her away from her lesbian partner says she's not upset with her father.

Still, it's unlikely she will be accepting any of the marriage proposals flooding in.

Gigi Chao says she's on "very loving terms" with her father, Cecil Chao.

He made world headlines this week when he offered the 500-million Hong Kong-dollar marriage bounty after learning that his daughter had eloped with her partner to France.

Cecil Chao is the chairman of Hong Kong property developer Cheuk Nang Holdings and has a reputation for being a playboy.

He said Friday that he has received hundreds of offers from suitors while his daughter has had thousands.
