Kim Kardashian’s awful $500K date with an Austrian billionaire


I try not to bother keeping up with our friends the Kardashians but this story is worth telling.

81-year-old Austrian businessman and billionaire, Richard Lugner, invited Kim Kardashian, 33, to be his special date for the annual Vienna Opera Ball on Thursday, but it came with a price. Lugner paid the starlet $500,000 to attend the event with him, a tradition he’s upheld since 1991.  The likes of Pamela Anderson, Grace Jones, Paris Hilton, and Carmen Electra have all accompanied the entrepreneur in previous years. Unfortunately for Kim, the easy money gig turned into a total sh*tshow from pretty much the moment she arrived in the country.

Richard was very unsatisfied with Kim’s company. According to Radar Online, he complained to reporters, “Kim is annoying me because she’s not sticking to the program.” Apparently she refused to dance with him and was generally boring company. Before arriving at the ball, Lugner invited Kim and her momager Kris Jenner, who also attended the ball, to get a bite to eat at a local Schnitzel restaurant, to which Kim declined.  While on her paid visit, she was also filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and he assumed, “she doesn’t want to have me around.”

As terrible of time as Richard seemed to be having, we’re pretty sure Kim had it even worse. Us Weekly reports that while she was posing for photos at the ball a man in blackface came up to her pretending to be her fiancé Kanye West. The line had officially been crossed and as soon as she could she exited the event. There had also been reports that the billionaire continuously tried to get the star alone, away from the watchful eye of security.
