Family tree of Terry Gou
Terry Gou is a Taiwanese billionaire businessman who is the founder, chairman and general manager of Foxconn.
Gou and his first wife, Serena Lin (林淑如; Lín Shúrú; 1950–2005), have a son who works in the film and real estate industries and a daughter who worked in the financial sector. Gou founded an educational charity with Lin in 2000 and intended to eventually give away one third of his wealth to charity. After Gou’s wife died, Gou’s daughter assumed leadership in the charity.
In the 1990s, Gou had an extramarital affair with Chen Chung-mei, a bar girl according to Gou, who had a private investigator videotape her and Gou having sex in order to blackmail Gou for money. While Gou first agreed to pay the money, when they next met he had police arrest Chen and the private investigator, Hsu Ching-wei, and sued them for extortion, stating he knew the affair would become “exposed one way or another”.
In 2005, Serena Lin died of breast cancer at the age of 55. Gou’s younger brother, Tony Gou, died in 2007 of leukemia. Also that year, Hsu Ching-wei accused Gou of having an affair during the 1990s. Gou married his second wife, choreographer Delia Tseng (曾馨瑩; Zēng Xīnyíng; born 1974) on 26 July 2008. Tseng and Gou have three children. Together, they have decided to give 90% of Gou’s wealth away.
