Casino magnate Stanley Ho’s death has cast a renewed spotlight on his family, as netizens have become extremely interested to find out how the billionaire has split his fortune among his family members, which include his three wives and 14 children.
The massive scrutiny is probably why it wasn't a good time for Stanley’s youngest son, Mario Ho, to update his Weibo profile. His verified bio on the platform used to read ‘Hongkong public figure (and) casino king Stanley Ho’s fourth wife’s son’, but on the May 29, netizens noticed that his new bio read ‘Macau E-sports Association Chairman, iDreamSky Partner, Shenzhen Victory 5 E-Sports Chairman’.
This became a hugely debated issue on Weibo, as some netizens wondered if the 25-year-old was that eager to "break off ties with his family". One netizen wrote: “Your dad hasn’t even been gone a week. Aren’t you being a little ungrateful?” Another wondered, “Are you trying to make it on your own and become independent now?”
