Kim Kardashian’s decision to attend a Viennese ball on Thursday night as the paid guest of Austrian billionaire Richard Lugner, was not a good one.
Kim Kardashian, 33, received an estimated $500,000 for her troubles at the Viennese ball, RadarOnline reported.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian “stormed out” of the gala after a staffer approached her wearing blackface and pretended to be her fiancé Kanye West.
Kim Kardashian told her camp that Richard Lugner, 81, was “aggressive, at times grabbing her and imploring her to lose her security”. He apparently wanted to be alone with her.
The reality star also faced down a guest who didn’t like being turned away for a dance.
Richard Lugner apparently wanted to be alone with Kim Kardashian at Vienna Ball
Richard Lugner had trouble with Kim Kardashian from the start. Seems he didn’t appreciate that Kim Kardashian, who arrived in Vienna with daughter North West and mom Kris Jenner, filmed scenes for Keeping Up With the Kardashians at a local schnitzel joint.
“Kim is annoying me, because she’s not sticking to the program,” Richard Lugner is quoted as telling reporters.
“She’s filming, and so she doesn’t want to have me around. The guest should be with me and not anywhere else that is not agreed upon.”
Richard Lugner, who claims he gussied up before the big event with “15 shots of Botox”, has long invited celebrities to accompany him to the annual ball, starting in 1991 with Gina Lollobrigida. Lindsay Lohan was tapped in 2010, but she failed to show after missing her flight.
More recent dates have included Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra, Dita Von Teese.
