Gigi Chao, who Chinese media outlets said married another woman, Sean Eav, last week at a civil ceremony in Paris, said her father, Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, made the "very entertaining" offer because he "loves her very much," CNN reported Thursday.
When asked about her marriage to Eav, Chao said she was "not in a position to verify that."
However, Cecil Chao Sze-tsung said the marriage was only "a rumor."
He said prospective suitors looking to marry his daughter can be of any nationality or economic background, requiring only that the man "loves my daughter, and she loves him."
Chao said "we will see" if her father's offer leads to a wedding.
