Single-named "actress, model, writer and film producer" Lily has sent up a website where she is auctioning off to the highest bidder the rights to "her true scary story" on dating Tu titled Asian Beauty--In Strange Rooms. Minimum bid: "4 million U.S. dollars."
She writes that she met Tu in 1998-99, and he is not the only tech titan Lily has had "horrifying experiences with." The same site is auctioning off the rights to Asian Beauty--House of Horror, Lilly's book based on her dating Elon Musk, the founder of Paypal. Minimum bid? Did you really have to ask? "4 million U.S. dollars."
"In her books, she wrote how inexplicable forces of nature arose in their glamorous and loving relationships," reports the site. "Read how supernatural powers can and do affect our daily lives and love."
It goes on to reveal Lily is producing a horror movie titled Rooms of Horror. Unfortunately for Hollywood studios lining up to acquire that hot property, no minimum bid is provided.
