Richard Lugner allegedly paid Kim Kardashian $500,000 to be his date at the Vienna’s annual Opera Ball. However, Kim apparently did not do the things that they agreed. According to Radar Online, Feb 27, 2014, Richard made sure that everyone knew that he didn’t get what he paid for and that Kim stood him up.
Kim arrived at the Opera Ball with her baby, North West, and her mother, Kris Jenner. So, what did Kim do that made the Australian building tycoon teed off at her? She left the Opera Ball to film some scenes for her TV reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashains.”
Richard told the press, “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.” He also announced that he and Kim would be on the dance floor at 11:45 p.m. He announced that he had 15 Botox shots just for this night.
Radar Online reports that Kim made it clear that she would not follow any kind of schedule. When it came time for the scheduled dance, Kim had her mother Kris dance with the 81-year-old. Kim explained, “I’d rather watch the dancing.”
Kim apparently turned down another would-be dance partner, so Richard wasn’t the only one she refused.
Celebuzz reports that since 1991, Richard has hired women to show up at this ball. His night could have been worse. At least Kim showed up. In 2010, Lindsay Lohan didn’t arrive because she missed her flight.
Perhaps next time, Richard should have a legal document drawn up with the dates, times and anything else that he expects from his paid for dates.
