After her Hong Kong billionaire father offered $130 million last week to any man who could turn her straight, Gigi Chao asserted her sexuality this week in an open letter to her dad.

Cecil Chao initially offered up $65 million in September 2012 to any man that could marry his socialite daughter, whom he had just learned eloped to France with her girlfriend of seven years, Sean Eav.

According to the Huffington Post, Chao has now upped the ante to approximately $130 million.

"I would not force her to marry a man," the billionaire said of the dowry. "But obviously I would, from my point of view, prefer her to be married and to have grandchildren."

Now Gigi Chao is speaking out and asserting her sexuality in a "Dear Daddy" open letter published Tuesday in the South China Morning Post.

"My regret is that you have no idea how happy I am with my life, and there are aspects of my life that you don’t share. I suppose we don’t need each other’s approval for our romantic relationships, and I am sure your relationships are really fantastic too," part of the letter reads.

"However, I do love my partner Sean, who does a good job of looking after me, ensuring I am fed, bathed, and warm enough every day, and generally cheering me up to be a happy, jolly girl. She is a large part of my life, and I am a better person because of her. 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’m sorry to mislead 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."
