Kim Kardashian has attended the world-famous Vienna Opera Ball as the date of 81-year-old billionaire Richard Lugner for a reported fee of $500,000.
Kanye West’s fiancée looked glamorous as she posed on the arm of the Australian business mogul, who has a fondness for paying celebrities to be his plus one to the annual ball. Paris Hilton was his famous date in 2007, and other celeb guests in the past have included Dita Von Teese, Larry Hagman and Pamela Anderson.
However, it didn’t quite go as the billionaire hoped. According to reports, Lugner was annoyed at Kim for not sticking to her part of the deal, wandering off with her mother Kris Jenner and filming for their E! TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians rather than spending time with him.
During an interview with the press at the ball, he said of the 33-year-old: “‘Kim is annoying me because she’s not sticking to the program.” It’s also thought that she refused to dance with her date during the swanky event.
To add to the drama, other reports have claimed that Kim fled the ball during the night after a white man with his face painted black made racist comments to her.
