Kim Kardashian Reportedly Left Vienna Opera Ball After Blackface Incident
Kim Kardashian, who was said being paid $500,000 to accompany billionaire Richard Lugner to the Vienna Opera Ball in Austria, reportedly left the event early due to an uncomfortable situation. According to TMZ, a white man who worked at the ball approached her while wearing blackface and pretended to be Kanye West. She reportedly avoided the man and stayed for another hour and a half.
The man, however, did not stop. He reportedly approached the 33-year-old reality star for the second time, asking her for a dance. Kardashian allegedly told him that she was not a good dancer. The man then was reported telling her that he would dance with her if the orchestra played "N****rs in Vienna".
In addition to the uncomfortable encounters with the man, Kardashian reportedly claimed that Lugner tried to get rid of her security team so that the two of them could be together. The site noted that parts of the alleged incident were recorded because she was filming her show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".
Lugner, who has been paying stars to accompany him at the ball for years, apparently was not happy after paying half a million dollars for Kim's company. Kim arrived in Vienna with baby North West and Kris Jenner and was welcomed with flowers when she landed. However, Radar Online reports that Lugner said, "Kim is annoying me. Because she's not sticking to the program."
Only hours after her arrival, Kardashian reportedly filmed her reality show. "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 said. Kardashian probably is not his worst date. Lindsay Lohan did not appear at all in 2010 after she missed her flight to Vienna.
